In short: A beautiful morning out in Surrey In full: Firstly, a bargain race with plenty of marshalls to keep it running smoothly. It was a terrifically sunny day and I had a picnic with the family at the finish which rounded it off nicely.
This never seems like a race and around the first loop there are always lots of people happy to have a chat on the way.
The leisure centre continue to make good money relieving me of £1.70 to take a shower! Date of review: March 20, 2011
In short: excellent value, around a pretty route. Very encouraging marshalls - thank you.Enough undulations to keep it interesting. Drinks perfectly spaced out.I would recommend this race.. Date of review: March 20, 2011
In short: I say "Wicked" RUNNERS WORLD say..... In full: â€œOutstandingâ€. I love this race with a passion. I always have.
Thereâ€™s something unique about this race. Maybe it is the price of the race just eight quid â€“ this makes a nice change, rather than me paying though my nose. Or maybe it is the choice of running either 15 miles or 21 miles on the day. Or maybe because it attracts RUNNERS from all over the WORLD I mean the UK. Or maybe simply because this is a good quality race with nice a medal. Whatever the reason is, I just love this race. I donâ€™t need to promote this race because the race sells itself; actually this race sells out early every year. "Respect" to Brian Vine The Race Organiser.
Cranleigh 15/21 miles probably my second all-time favourite race; it always makes me feel emotional, happy and good. As for my legs itâ€™s too painful to talk about them.
In this race I got the P factors, Passion, Pleasure and PAIN!
Well done, Brian. For such a â€œWicked Raceâ€. In other words an Outstanding race.
In short: A good solid event - a true bargin of an event. In full: Excellent event, challenging course but with the advantage of doing 15 or 21 miles. Bargin of an event. Water stations were well placed. Well done & many thanks to MABAC and to all those who helped put on this event esp those two at the jelly baby station. Many thanks. Date of review: April 1, 2010
In short: Super race yet again In full: Loved this race, 2nd year for me and it was worth the drive down from East Anglia. Hills weren't too bad, and I love the downhill finish!
Only criticism would be the traffic at the finish, coupled with the fact that to get water at the end you had to double back across the road again - so too many people milling around made it a crowded weave to get to the finish line. Not sure why they didn't have water beyond the finish line as there was plenty of room. Date of review: March 30, 2010
In full: This was my first 21mile race and I completed it in prep for the Brighton marathon and very enjoyable. Friendly runners, very well organised and it wasn't which is always a bonus. I especially liked the idea of having the option of either running 15miles or 21 miles on the day. The jelly babies and medal were an added bonus. Would enjoy doing this race again.
