In short: Start the year with a hard rum In full: A pity that it was so cold but no chance of a heatwave that early in the year. The organizing club should be proud of their efforts, Date of review: January 16, 2009
In short: I was a little bit cold to start off with but wasn`t at the end!! In full: What a way to start the year. 1st time there so didn`t know the course - uphill in places, down hill in some, flat in others. Surfaces - road (mostly traffic free) with some trail - all x 2 of course inc the jelly babies. Good start to the year. Nice marker. Many thanks to the orgainsers & esp the smilling marshalls who were out in the cold helping us round....and the other runners. Date of review: January 7, 2009
In short: Freezing to say the least. Once we were off, it warmed up, it was well marshalled, no real traffic and great scenery. Hilly too which was a challenge which made it even more rewarding. Date of review: January 7, 2009
In short: good way to start 2009! In full: I hate hills! so I shouldn't like the tadworth ten - but I do! love being out in the Countryside on a lovely winters day will be back on the downs for the Perch race at the end of the month. Date of review: January 7, 2009
In short: Chilly and demanding but thoroughly rewarding race In full: this is the first time i've run this race having run the Longmoor Lollop for the past 2 years; Tadworth is an excellent mix of road, cross country, tough hills and scenery; certainly up there with my favourites. Combined with a great goody bag and excellent marshalling and little or no traffic makes this a must for anyone wanting to kickstart their running year. Date of review: January 6, 2009
In short: A well organised and challenging race. In full: With two long hills on each 5 mile lap and an equally thigh shuddering descent this is certainly not a PB course. However the scenery is fantastic for us townies and the marshalls and locals who braved the weather where fantastic. Date of review: January 6, 2009
In short: Why have I missed this Gem of a race? In full: Wow, this has rate as a very good race. I've been running for 4 years now and completely missed this race. Yes it was cold, hard & hilly. But that did not stop it being great fun, well organised & a very pleasent atmosphere.
This has to go on my regular to-do calender. Date of review: January 5, 2009
