The Race Organiser is delighted to have completed the formal acquisition of Surrey-based AAT Events, following its sale by founder and CEO, Toby Jenkins.

Toby and his team of staff, volunteers and partners have developed an outstanding portfolio of popular events over the last 17 years, including the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon, Guildford 10K and both the Guildford and Haselmere triathlons.

There are no planned changes to the AAT brand and the ongoing delivery of all events in the AAT calendar is confirmed.

The Race Organiser group is made up of a growing portfolio of events in the London and South East, the South West of England and the Midlands, led by owner and CEO, Craig Thornton.

The family of brands include Berkshire-focused Purple Patch Running, triathlon and multisport company F3 Events, alongside major UK running events including Run Silverstone, Swindon Half Marathon and the Frome Half Marathon.

“We’re thrilled and proud to welcome AAT Events to The Race Organiser family” said Craig Thornton, CEO, The Race Organiser.

“Building on the hard work from Toby and his team, we’re so pleased to be able to guarantee the continued delivery of these brilliant events for the running community.

With such great locations and well-deserved popularity, these events will continue to be highlights of the calendar, with The Race Organiser focus on outstanding participant experience at their heart.”
