In short: Fabulous day, fantastic route, amazing scenery and a a super race In full: From the bum bag before the start and the rendition of Jerusalem at the start to the long sleeve top (complete with names) & medal as you crossed the line and finally to the cooked breakfast and relaxing swim, this race was just brilliant.
A stunning day for a jaunt in the Surrey hills made this super. The there-and-back route was great for seeing everyone else and giving everyone a cheer along.
I had an awesome day, and did much better than I expected to, given all those hills. It was a lovely race & I hope to be back again...and I can only hope the weather is as perfect as it was this time. Thanks to Dr Rob for a superb race. Date of review: October 26, 2010
In short: Great, tough, off road race over hills and back again In full: Although this is a tough marathon it is great for all levels of runner, as long as you put in a decent first 10km, then ease back and enjoy the great view. excellent scenery and brilliant company. Great goodies at the end too, long sleeve top, medal. Top Race! Date of review: October 26, 2010
In short: That good I accidently entered twice. In full: Dr Rob and his team of marshalls and helpers made this a fantastic day. From the arrival brew to the departing fry up. Perfect. Date of review: October 22, 2010
In short: Tough ascents and descents, fantastic scenery & organisation, well worth it In full: One of the toughest I've done in terms of terrain & although had no concerns when reading about the 1 hour 15 minute cut off for reaching 6.5 miles, it was closer than I would have liked due to being mainly uphill to there (or so it seemed). I enjoyed it, but don't feel I gave it my all - few issues during the run & stopped to take a few photos of the views, so will definately aim to do it again & do myself justice.
