In short: 10 miles of great running in the surrey hills In full: Great race, well organised with a really good route. Two big-ish hills to test you with a fast, fast, fast downhill on the tarmac to the finish line.

In short: Awesome run course, what a view In full: OK so the course isn't for PBs but I'd rather run this than a trading estate every day of the week. Mildly hilly trail run on good tracks with great views. Loads of cheering marshals. Windy, warm and dry made for a superb run.
Quick dispensing of drink, t-shirt and chocolate. Don't need a goody bag of rubbish (and didn't really need a t-shirt). Great massage for a small donation to charity.
Well done all, thank you for getting up early and finishing late. Putting these runs on takes a lot of effort. Date of review: May 29, 2011
In full: There were several distances being run and I opted for the 10 mile off-road. Very severe climb from the gun which really challenged one's resolve. Thought initial entry price (£20.00 on the day) was expensive. Plenty of free drinks and tech shirt at end made it seem more affordable. Well organized and marshalled. Tough race, not intended for fast times or suitable for casual runners in my view. I'll return next year better prepared! Date of review: May 29, 2011
In short: I accompanied my 7yr old in the 2.5km Fun Run. What a brilliant first race to get kids interested. Lovely scenery and the ribena, chocolate and medal at the end was a huge hit! Date of review: May 29, 2011
In full: Overall a very enjoyable race with a lovely scenic course and great views. Well organised and thank you to all the friendly marshalls. The race was however promoted as a trail run with a medal and T Shirt to all finishers, but about 30% of the course was on concrete/tarmac and unfortunately I have another oversized T Shirt in my vast collection! Wot no medal! And yes - where were the goodies in the goodie bag? It would be great if organisers could get back to basics - a memento medal, water and a banana. Date of review: April 15, 2010
In short: Lovely scenery with a couple of tough hills In full: This is a reace in beautiful sorroundings and very friendly throuhout. Most of the money goes to the Rainbow Trust so it hits the spot. Only grumble was the lack of water at the end on a hot day. Date of review: April 14, 2010
In short: Lovely day. Lovely scenery. Lovely. In full: A challenging 5k but good fun. Marshals were very friendly. I heard quite a few complaints about the quality of the goody bags which were mosy stuffed with paper and it seemed that a few people were disappointed by the lack of medal for all but the 2k fun runners. My only gripe was that I thought it a little deflating (pardon the soon-to-become- apparent pun) that organisers were bringing down the finishing line/arch before some of the 10 mile runners had finished. I wouldn't have been very enthused if I was nearing the end of a challenging race to find the finish line gone. Date of review: April 13, 2010
