In short: Multi terrain kept it interesting... In full: But I was seriously concerned at the finish which was poorly controlled. There were cars and kids and pedestrians all over the finishing area. Otherwise the route itself and marshals were great. Will come again. Date of review: May 2, 2011
In short: Lovely Bank Holiday run in the woods In full: Nice run mainly off road friendly marshals and support. The whole thing was very informal as run by the school but went without a hitch. Weather was lovely as was the route around Claygate common. Date of review: May 2, 2011
In short: The smiliest marshallis, some of the nicest scenery, all good fun - thank you! In full: This race is friendly, great scenery and despite being bitterly chilly all the marshalls smiled, clapped and shouted encouragement. All in all put a big grin on my face for the rest of the day. Agree with the other posting that moving the start to the green with more running in the woods would be a good idea.

In short: I love this race. I'll be back next year In full: This is a perfect race. A nice mix of runners, friendly marshalls, a pretty route, a medal. I think the food and hot drink stall was a good idea, especially as it was so cold. Date of review: May 4, 2010
In short: As usual a well-organised and worthwhile event. Well Done. In full: One suggestion for improving the route......
This may be to use the school as a race HQ, but to then "walk" the runners down to the Green (half a mile away) and start and finish the race on the Green at the foot of Arbrook Lane. You will need to compensate by adding extra distance in the woods.
This would then avoid the traffic along Milbourne Lane. (Most people noticed the guy in the Jag at the start who sat there impatiently sounding his horn).
In short: Great local event, only possible improvement could be the addition of a coffee stall for specatators, this could also be an additional fund raising scheme for the scholl Date of review: May 5, 2009
In short: Lovely route and friendly marshalls In full: I have done this race for five years, and I never tire of it. The route is so pleasant and varied - the only bit I don't like is the slog uphill to the finish. The marshalls are really friendly and supportive. I enjoyed the warmup this year. Have I managed to miss it in the past, or is it a new thing? Date of review: May 5, 2009
In short: Great race, lovely support from friendly marshalls, good atmosphere In full: A lovely race through great tracks with only a few slight hills, the marshalls were really friendly which made it even more enjoyable. Try this for a first 10k to give you a taster, but good for pushing a semi off-road PB! Date of review: May 5, 2009
