A runner, believed to be a young man, died during yesterday’s half marathon in Reigate.

For those of you on Twitter last night, Sunday 21st September, you would have noticed several tweets regarding the death.

It was later confirmed by Redhill West Councillor Natalie Bramhall who tweeted

“Unfortunately it is true a young man lost his life today”

A woman who attended the race yesterday with her children and wishes to remain anonymous said:

“People were being led away from the finish line, I asked what had happened and was told in hushed tones, all our thoughts go out to the poor man’s family”

An official statement is expected to be made later today.

Tributes are pouring in on social media.
