In short: a great way to welcome the new year In full: Very well organised event, loads of smiley marshalls and the surprise of what this years memento is going to be makes this a staple of my start of year calendar. Date of review: January 7, 2013
In short: nice atmosphere, well organised In full: It was a bit of a dreary day but most runners were in high spirits. This was my first race for 2013 and I found it really difficult managing the hills which went on for ever. I have only said I wont do it again because it was just too hard for me personally and I struggled to enjoy it knowing I was way off my normal pace. If you like a challenge then this is the race. Felt a bit cheated in not getting a medal after all that effort but the cool bag is CooL! Lots of support and smiling marshals giving lots of encouragement. Date of review: January 6, 2013
In short: Bit of a toughie for me as I struggle with hills, managed to shave 3 minutes off last years time though so quite pleased with that! nice little cooler bag as a momento, might come in handy for the sarnies! Date of review: January 6, 2013
In short: Great race - always a pleasure! In full: I have my PB on this course, so it's a PB course for me. Supportive marshals this year. Couldn't hear the starter (as usual) although I was fourth row back. Great facilities at the HQ. Good race! Date of review: January 6, 2013
In short: Well done Tadworth AC In full: Really enjoyed it today. Everything well organised, friendly cheerful marshals, plentiful water stations and lovely countryside to run in. What more do you need from a race? Date of review: January 6, 2013
In short: Not the one for a pb... In full: A nice little race around some nice countryside, villages and a racecourse. Well organised although a bit of a trek from the main carpark to the start. The marshals were plentiful and cheerful which is always a plus! The hill at the beginning and 5 miles later was a bit of a never ending beast and rules out a pb (for me at least!). Ultimately a good race that was well organised in a nice part of Surrey.
In short: hilly, not for PB, worth turning up after xmas and new year... In full: HQ at Epsom Racecourse where had really nice changing rooms, clean toilets etc, but the start was about mile away i didnt understand why... route was hilly, nice challenging race, not the one for PB, lots of runners, good atmosphere... 2 lap race, good marshals, lots of smiling faces.. finish was good, lots of people cheering, there was a nice race momento but no medal though, orange squash and water at the end...
In short: tough, scenic, well marshalled In full: first race i have been to on my own, had great day, did actually pb by 7.5 minutes. was a tough course. well marshalled. facilities good. shame didnt get a medal Date of review: January 16, 2012
