In short: A great friendly race in a superb setting. In full: Great value for money. Friendly atmosphere and a good race to take the family to as playing field and rec right next to the start. Superb scenery and a lot of the route shaded. Not completely flat and the sharp bend and climb near the end caught me out. Would definitely do again. Date of review: July 6, 2009
In short: Pretty, small and friendly, good as an introduction to the area In full: As I live in nearby Guildford, it was worth making the short trip over, especially as the start time is a very civilised 11:00. A portion of the race is along the old Guildford to Horsham line and is mercifully shaded. It moves onto rough roads between two farms and includes a hilly bit of trail before a steep climb up the embankment (sorry if I offended the marshall with my language when I saw that) and back home. Nice touches like adding an extra water station because of the heat and a well organised start.
The only improvement I would suggest is that the organisers note in the race pack where the alternative car parks are located in Cranleigh. The recommended one near the leisure centre was full when I arrived. Date of review: July 6, 2009
In short: Very nice. Modest size of event contributed to friendly atmosphere. Well signed and marshalled. A bit warm, but well timed spots of rain helped. Very pleasant route. Date of review: July 5, 2009
In short: Great scenery, well organised - will be back next year! In full: This was my first 10k and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The scenery was great, each km was clearly marked, water stations at 4km and 7km, friendly race marshals and small enough event with a well placed finish line to ensure friends and family could see you cross the line. I will be signing up to do it again next year! Date of review: July 5, 2009
In short: Loved it - it's not pb for the distance but maybe make it one for th terrain..it's not flat and a few stones tried to trip me along the way, loved it In full: Need to get there early for parking which was a bit of a nightmare, well organised race...great scenery, runs along farmland, woodland, old railway etc etc not a pb course, for me at least but loved it, especially the finish which had a little downhill which ade me feel like I was flying :-) Date of review: July 5, 2009
