In short: An enjoyable race but my first 'cross country' 10k which made a PB out of the question. Having to pass through gates and meeting faster runners coming the other way slows you down a bit, and I am glad it was dry as thee slopes would have been hard r Date of review: September 17, 2007
In short: lovely offroad 10k. kids 2k race makes it a nice family event. In full: ideal conditions, challenging scenic course, well organised and great atmosphere. hard to ask for more really. my four year old did the kids race n wouldnt stop talking about it all day long or take her medal off! will certainly be back again next year. tx to the organiser and all the marshalls and helpers Date of review: September 17, 2007
In short: Tough, friendly, well-organised In full: Was hard work but nice to be traffic-free. Excellent access via public transport - Ashtead station very close. Got lucozade half way round - and lots at the end (although the carrots didn't go down as well as the jelly babies!). Perfect weather conditions - would have been very hard if wet! The prizegiving session was amusing and there were lots of cakes. Marshalls and the few supporters were really encouraging. Would recommend this. Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: Enjoyable, but I found it tough In full: I admit I probably wasn't as fit as I was earlier in the year but even so I reckon this was the toughest 10K I have ever done.
However I enjoyed not running on roads and I found that there was comraderie amongst the runners which you don't always exeperience with road races, this is despite the fact that for periods I was on my own! Will do again next yearmw Date of review: September 16, 2007
In short: Great atmosphere - great laugh. In full: Found this rather challenging,3rd 10 k but previous 2 on flat tarmac. However great fun, brilliant amosphere, everyone really encouraging on out and back course.Organisation straightforward and spot on. Marshalls were all lovely,Don't even mind about the purple ankle from rabbit hole encounter at 4km - still finished in a good time for me(1:03 ish ) Date of review: September 16, 2007
