In short: HILLY In full: Great organisation, plenty of friendly marshals. Lots of water stations. Brilliant goody bag, good value for money. The downside? I don't like to suffer and I don't like hills! But I am sure the memories of the hills will fade and I probably be back next year. Date of review: September 6, 2009
In short: Dont be fooled the hills are killer!! BUT, this has serious favourite race potential In full: My wife and I wanted to do this race as a pre Loch Ness Marahon race because of the hills to test how our traing is going. The race has fantastic, every marshal was enthusiastic, clapping and cheering. I loved the feeling this race gave me as it was Very well organised, superb goody bag, T-shirt, socks and even a beer!! The hills were MUCH harder than I expected but I love a good hill so I didnt mind.
I will be back next year...... Date of review: September 6, 2009
In short: lovely hilly offroader on good tracks with good atmosphere but not requiring the same degree of masochism as the trionium halfs! In full: really enjoyed this one today. course a bit drier than last year and hence faster. really excellent organisation and top goodies at the end make this one one of the best value for money events of all imho. i was looking foward to that badger beer for the last 3 miles and it certainly didnt disappoint. as far as i know this is the only morning race with beers at the end and so an ideal one for runners like me who get 'thirsty' on sunday mornings! some might say it's not a potential PB course due to the hills, but i ran my fastest time for years so can't be too bad. many thanks to the organisers, marshalls and other helpers for their splendid work and encouragement. see you at ashtead 10k in 2 weeks.

In short: Well organised race. Great marshalling. Course is challenging and not one you would ever expect a PB from;it's just too hilly! Freebies at the end were a nice touch. Worth a look if you like a scenic tough course. Date of review: September 6, 2009
