In short: Nice countryside run In full: Great route which takes you through some enjoyable countryside, ok a couple of hills are thrown in but nothing too serious. Approx finishing time markers at the start is, to me a sign of a good event. Nice finishing area - plently of support. Thanks to all involved for putting this event on. Nice one.

In short: Thanks In full: Firstly, thanks to the organisers - especially the cheery marshalls - for a great job well done and much appreciated.
Three small suggestions. An earlier start, please - it wasn't as hot this time as a couple of years ago, but a lot of us slower types still struggled. Number and tag by post, please - less messing around on the day. The guy next to me at the start almost did himself a serious injury by running into a parked car - realise they can't me moved or banned, but maybe a tall marker (as they use in the Kingston Breakfast runs to avoid people running into bollards).
Overall, thanks for a really good event. Date of review: May 31, 2009
In short: scenic but hot In full: I did this run a few years back and loved the old route. Now a longer walk to the start, and a very exposed run for June sunshine. I would really recommend an earlier start. Thats said, its a beuatiful area, and marshalls and supporters were fantastic Date of review: May 31, 2009
In full: First time at this race and had a really positive experience. The course itself threw a few hills at you and the sun made it a real challenge. Organisation was second to none and the marshalling was great. Would recommend to any runner, club or not. Looking forward to 2010 already! Date of review: May 31, 2009
In short: I'd love to have another go on a cooler day! In full: A perfectly organised race on a lovely day (for the supporters and marshalls). Surprisingly tough course made harder by the heat. I'll be back for more next year Date of review: May 31, 2009
In short: Any chance of some rain!!!!! In full: This is the 4th year in a row that ive done this,so i know the course well(inc the "ups and downs"),i know how well organised it is,i know the marshalls are BRILLIANT,what i cant work out is how i managed a PB for the course (in those conditions)and only missed my pb for the distance by just over a minute!!!! all i ask for is a bit of rain!!! i would agree with the comment on the start time (thats cos i dont have to travel far!!!)
In short: Turned out nice again In full: Superbly organised, with marshals in all the right places, and lots of facilities for a race of this size. The same faces are there every year - lots of old friends to see and to race against. Well done to Dorking and Mole Valley AC for organising this race. Date of review: May 31, 2009
