In short: Not to be confused with the Dorking 10k Fun Run in May! In full: This race is the Dorking 10m, starting in the village of Brockham - not to be confused with the new Dorking 10k which starts steeply uphill in Denbies vineyard - a different race altogether! Date of review: March 26, 2007
In short: A tough 10k course which would be dangerous when wet ! In full: I really enjoyed the race but it's tough and one downhill section in the vineyard would have caused a lot of problems if it had been wet. A bit too much waffle on the tannoy at the start to, resulting in a false start (not that they called anyone back). A fun run it was and it would be harsh to say anything too derogatory for that very reason. Well done to all concerned. I will be back in 2007 Date of review: February 12, 2007
In short: Get Sports systems involved in the results....Please.Can an "S" be put on back of vests if you are running in the surrey Championships? In full: Get Sports systems involved in the results....Please. I enetered on-line and therefore paid more, but still needed to collect my number on the day! Why pay more if no post/sorting needed? Can an "S" be put on back of vests if you are running in the surrey Championships? Date of review: June 9, 2006
In short: Good race In full: Despite my own pathetic performance this year, I still think this is a good race - fair course, friendly marshalls, pleasant scenery, excellent parking, nice cake. The start was a bit chaotic, and we could at least have had a countdown and siren blasting, to give some atmosphere. The water stations were more important than ever in the heat. I know it increases costs, but bottles/pouches are SO much better than half-filled plastic cups.
Overall, thanks to everyone who organises this good event. Date of review: June 9, 2006
In short: Nice Race Loved the Sun !!!!!!! In full: Lovely Views made this enjoyable, everbody picked up re problems of the start but that couldn't put me off. Didn't find the hills a problems going too slow to let those bother me.Best of all was the friendly marchalling well done MVDAC. Date of review: June 8, 2006
In short: Pity about the start but very well marshalled and lovely views In full: More serious runners than other events -even the 75 minute plus people I was running with didn't smile, say thank you to the marshalls or try to drop their water cups in the bins. Date of review: June 5, 2006
In short: Perfect scenery, slight undulations, very hot! In full: Very friendly marshalls and lovely that children and local families help out with welcome smiles and cheering. Agree with comments about the beginning being a bit disorganised, but overall a great race. Starting an hour earlier could help with heat issues in future Date of review: June 5, 2006
