In short: Greensand Glorious In full: Another fantastic event organised by Rob and his team , really fantastic but realistically tough trail route out and back, because it was autumn you get some amazing scenary for the entry . The Surrey Hills are beautiful this time of year and weather conditions in 2014 were also perfect for marathon running . Brilliant marshals who were both highly encouraging and polite to all the tired runners giving us a real positive boost when we needed it - thank you !
In short: Like a re-enactement of the Somme. The thought of the cooked breakfast pulled me through. In full: Awesome race. Not for the faint hearted. Beautifully organised, but could we have less rain next year please. Date of review: October 16, 2013
In short: Mud, Rain, Slime, Mega-puddles but I still did a PB for the course :) In full: My knees and hips cant do 26m so I'm vey happy to get another bite at the 'LHH'. This is a course that rewards good training, and I love it. Its my longest run since aug12 when I tore my Achilles, and I did a PB, so I would be smug of course :) I might even have beaten the 1st lady if I hadn't gone aot in one of those puddlakes !

In short: Quite an experience! In full: Great area to run in and the event was spot on for its organisation and friendliness. The Marshalls were a joy to behold (especially on the way back!) Date of review: October 16, 2013
In short: Still the best marathon in the UK - even in the pouring rain In full: I have done all 5 of these events now. They are incredible. So glad I turned up in the rain to continue the streak. Here is my race report.
