In short: Snow, ice on the puddles, vertical climbs and jaffa cakes on the finish line - bring it on In full: This is the highlight of the racing year. It's tough and you'll never do a PB for the distance on the course. Had the honour of seeing the course record broken this year by a young Welsh lad. Smiling and flying - just the way that I wasn't when I got to the same place 15 minutes behind him.
This is a race that will turn any road runner into a hard-core trail runner. Fantastic fun. Date of review: March 26, 2013

In short: Running In A Christmas Card...err but isn't it nearly Easter! In full: As we were running up and the branches of the trees glistened with snow someone made the comment they thought they had just stepped into Narnia. Although my fingers were frozen and painful despite gloves, with hand warmers inside, the beautiful scenery and wonderful camaraderie with the rest of my fellow runners, and the marshalls lifted your spirits away from the mud, wind and cold. As ever with Trionium events they are tough, and gruelling but about the best in the business for making you smile and have fun despite Dr Rob being a fiend in finding he hardest routes in Surrey. A huge thank you to the marshalls for your support and encouragement and Dr Rob's band of merry helpers who make it all happen very much appreciated you are the real heroes standing around in the cold and wind. Dr Rob as ever a big thank you and look forward to seeing you on Box Hill in June and the steps of doom!! Date of review: March 25, 2013
In short: Beautiful through the snowy woods... when you could lift your eyes from the muddy track In full: Wonderful marshalls, smiling even in the snow. Nice out-and-back route with more uphill than you expect on the way back. You could feel the temperature drop below zero as you climbed to the top, with a tower looking v pretty in the snow. Love the carrots at the end - and cool hat as well as T-shirt this year. Date of review: March 24, 2013
