With event road closures in place we advise that you allow plenty of time for your journey.

5k Run

Family Run

Having done many races I found this one to be was very well organised. I would recommend to anyone. I especially liked the way you had to walk away from the finish line to get goody bag as it stopped the normal chaos of people crowds at the end. First class!
Absolutely an amazing event. Nice view, cheering from plane on runway and many more exciting stuff. Better value, an amazing course and glory of having an outstanding medal.
Great organised event. All the marshalls were friendly and supportive no matter where you were in the race. Event village was fab and a great place for spectators
Very well organized race. Marshalls very supportive. Flat course. Potential for PB. Great spirits. Great after race party/picnic. Loved the medal and the technnical t-shirt 🙂

Coronavirus Update

We are sure you are all wondering if British Airways Run Gatwick scheduled to take place in just 8 weeks time is still going ahead. In light of the fast moving developments around COVID-19, regretfully we have taken the decision this weekend to postpone the event. Whilst we are extremely disappointed for us and all of you who have been training, our first priority is always to protect the health and well-being of our runners, volunteers, partners and the wider community and this is coupled with the need to not put additional pressure on our local and emergency services.

Our new date for the event will be Sunday 18th October and we absolutely intend to deliver the full British Airways Run Gatwick experience for everyone but as you can appreciate, the next few months are uncertain and therefore we will keep you updated regularly.

We are also aware that many other running events are also postponing to the Autumn period and British Airways Run Gatwick may clash with them and we know that many of you will have to choose between us and other great events. There’s nothing we can say other than we really hope you will still join us. Your entry will automatically be carried over to the new date so there is no action for you to take.

We know you may have some questions particularly around deferrals and transfers, so please bear with us over the coming days as we want to ensure a streamlined and consistent response to you all. Updates will be emailed directly and posted on the Run Gatwick website and our social media channels. Please could we ask you to wait for those updates rather than emailing or asking for updates via social media, this will really help our small team in these difficult circumstances.

Our running and local community are incredibly supportive and we’d like to thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and continued support whilst we work on new plans to deliver a fantastic event experience for everyone in October.
