How to Join Team Stork (kids)

We are great believers in encouraging and supporting kindness and empathy at a young age, it sets children up for life! For kids to join Team Stork it is a little different to the adult’s races. We’ve kept it nice and simple:

  • Register via the Run Reigate website.
  • Once an account has been created, your child will need adding as an athlete. When adding them as an athlete, in the field named ‘Club/Company’ enter ‘TeamStork2019’. If they have previously participated in Run Reigate, then you will need to edit the profile, go to the ‘Your Athletes’  tab, and in the field named ‘Club/Company’ enter ‘TeamStork2019’. You registration and payment can now be completed. Your data will be shared between Run Reigate and Stripey Stork – this is how we will know your little storklet is on the team!
  • We would also appreciate a quick email to events@stripeystork.org.uk with the details of the school year of your child so we can track how many runners we have in each race.
  • We ask that they strive to raise a minimum of £25. Setting up an online fundraising page is easy using our step by step guide. If you prefer to fundraise as a family and adjust your target accordingly, this is also explained in the guide.
  • As a thank you, we will provide all children with a sporty Stripey Stork cap to wear on the day.

Run Reigate have created these super mile trackers to encourage children to get training. Kids will run and track all 12 miles in the weeks leading up to race day, with the kid’s race being the final mile in their cumulative half marathon. Download mile tracker version 1 and version 2.

Read this inspiring blog on how the whole family can train together this summer, with local running suggestions which are flat and shady, and ideas to distract the kids from all that exercise they are doing.

Drum-up support

We’d appreciate it if you could display our Run Reigate poster to help us gain support. Do you have a communal area in your workplace, noticeboard or even some wall space by the coffee machine, to let your colleagues know about Run Reigate? Are you part of a community group who might love to be involved? Could the poster be displayed at your child’s school or nursery? If you’d like printed copies of the poster or flyers then please contact events@stripeystork.org.uk and we’d be happy to supply.

Check out our blog from last year, where we raised over an impressive £13k. Together we can aim even higher!
