British Airways Run Gatwick

Spectators

Our runners love and need spectators to keep them motivated!

Where Can I Watch The Race?

There are plenty of places along the route to watch the race and support the runners but there are a couple of points where you can really enjoy the atmosphere with live music, refreshments and communities out in force! So grab your signs, whistles, horns, anything that will cheer our runners on and head to one our key Cheer Points.

Crawley Cheer Points

The Punchbowl, 9am onwards, Mile 2 of the Half Marathon

See the runners head out of Crawley town centre at the 2 mile marker

High Street, 9:30-12:30, Mile 12.5 of the Half Marathon & 4k of the 5k Race

Local businesses will open early to support the runners and provide great offers for our spectators. The High street will be a lively spot to support our Half Marathon and 5k runners on the last leg to the Finish Line in Southgate Park!

Charlwood Cheer Point

Charlwood Village, 9:30-11:30, Mile 6 of the Half Marathon

Charlwood Village is the halfway point and a water station for the Half Marathon. A beautiful historic village with passionate local residents who will be providing live music for our runners by Rawbones on Blue Mountain, along with marshals and volunteers cheering the runners on their way through. Read more here about Charlwood Village and historic sites to look out for on the day.

Please check road closures and access times in advance

Ifield

Ifield is located in the west of Crawley. It is one of the most historic areas of the town and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. With the development of the new town in 1947, the village of Ifield was merged with the small market town of Crawley and the village of Three Bridges to become Crawley new town.

Langley Green

Langley Green is a small neighbourhood located towards the northwest of Crawley with a lively and friendly community. The area is in walking distance of the Manor Royal Business District. Langley Green is a great place to come and support our runners between Mile 10 and 12 of the Half Marathon.

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.
