In short: Lovely West Surrey Countryside Race In full: Well worth getting up early for (especially with the clock change : the start time was effectively 8am!). Quiet setting, virtually no traffic, marshalls really lovely and water stations well managed. I had a terrible race (it was one of those days) but will definitely go back next year! Thank you to all.

In short: The Ideal Pre-London event In full: If only all races were like this, low key, value for money, friendly and well organised.
Minor quibble is that it is advertised as Flat which it is not. It is Gently undulating with a nasty little hill near the end, particurly hard if doing the 21 mile event, therefore you have to run up it twice.
In short: Perfect chilled out marathon preparation In full: Low key, local and friendly race. Thanks soooooo much to the guy who found my car key that I dropped during the race, it was very kind of you to take the effort to hand it in! Much appreciated! Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: Lovely race ,scenic, low key & great value In full: This was a lovely low key race and the organisation and marshalling was excellent. Unfortunately the finish line let things down a bit for me. I could not see that it was set up around a corner and it was only when spectators could see my confusion and alerted me where to go that I realised where to run, lost some time, but such is life. If anything could be improved for next year it should be the finishing aspects, it needs to be visible to an oncoming runner and clearly marked for 15 or 21. The tea and cakes on offer at the end was sweet,loved the chocolate brownies! Will be recommending the race to others. Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: Challenging & enjoyable, thank you. But beware if you're the sort that needs crowds cheering you on as most of it is without support due to the nature of the course. Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: Great Race In full: Well done to the organisers! Great course, friendly marshals and good atmosphere. I feel more confident for the FLM now - thank you. (Plus it's in my home town) Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: One of my favourite races In full: due to the friendliness and organisation. Great training race for FLM. Pity I didn't feel well enough to do 21M but I'll definately be back. Date of review: March 26, 2007
