Woking Lions Club

Woking Lions are a vibrant group of friendly volunteers focused on having fun whilst raising money for those in need in the Woking area.
More information and including how to joining us can be found here http://www.wokinglions.org.uk/

The race is organised completely by volunteers and all proceeds are distributed to local charities that are carefully selected by the Woking Lions.  Over £10,000 was given to local charities from money raised from our last run.  Next year we would like to surpass that.  When you register for our race you will directly benefit local charities.

The sandpits on Horsell Common are famously the site where the Martians first landed  in H.G. Wells novel The War of the Worlds.  Our race is in it’s fifth year and the route always goes through the historic sandpits we have chosen this as our theme and the name for the event.

Horsell Common is privately owned common land with public access.  Almost half of the common is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).  We are very privileged to be able to run on the common and take our environmental responsibilities very seriously.  The routes are chosen to respect the flora and fauna that live there and we strive to minimise our impact.  Our races are always litter free and this year we have pledged to be free of single-use plastics.
