In short: Brilliant event. Challenging course In full: Another brilliant ETL event. Well organised, plenty of friendly marshalls, great medal. Real family atmosphere, the fun run was a highlight for my kids.
The course is hilly with two particularly challenging sections each with about 250 feet of elevation gain over the course if a mile, there was quite a bit of mud on the course two- glad I wore my oldest shoes. The course is never going to be one for a PB but what it loses in speed it more than makes up for in scenery. Date of review: June 15, 2014
In short: Beautiful but challenging race with a great views and a great medal. In full: The race starts in the beautiful gardens of Polesden Lacey and takes you through the lovely Surrey countryside. Great course with some hills to make it interesting! Beautiful medal at the end and access to the grounds of the national trust property and its tea room for a well deserved lunch.

In short: Challenging hills, beautiful scenery, what's not to like? In full: Fantastic course through the lovely Surrey Hills scenery with slick organisation and a friendly word from the organiser at the end ...plus chocolate!
As for route measuring... Give me a wheel and someone pushing it every time over some dodgy American satelites...my Garmin read zero km because It was in its box at home... A useful training tool, but that is all.
