In short: Very special trail race. Well organised and marshaled liked the Kendal Mint Cake. In full: Wonderful views which helped to sustain you. Footing was a little tricky in places especially for a road runner like me.
Top marks to Graham and Claire for their wonderful organisation. Date of review: June 5, 2005
In short: 20 years to get it right... they did. In full: Found the course a bit lumpy (and the wind snuck up in the second half) but good fun. Tshirt is very yellow (natch). Another clockwork event from the Harriers Date of review: June 5, 2005
In short: Undulating 10 miles round Surrey countryside with a crazy start In full: The start was a bit crazy - 500 odd runners crammed into a narrow lane with late arrivals joining at the front.
After the first half mile there was plenty of room though and the race meandered pleasantly through the Surrey countryside (unlike me). And the hill between 7 and 8 miles was nowhere near as bad as I'd been led to believe - more of a long undulation. Date of review: June 5, 2005
In short: An enjoyable race, got chatting to some nice people on the way around In full: Car park was very busy with cars blocking each other in etc, so I would advise arriving early, the race was well marshalled and enjoyable to run in. This was only my 2nd 10k and I fely it was good for beginners. Date of review: June 5, 2005
In short: Where were the marshalls? In full: Someone forgot to put a marshall near the monument and a large group of us were directed by one of the first aiders in the wrong direction so we ended up running down a main road (not very safe)
..and if you are going to use children as marshalls, could you instruct them to direct and not to just to stand there?
This was a poorly organised and unsafe race Date of review: June 5, 2005
