In short: Lovely run across the North Downs. In full: A well organised race starting in Denbies wine estate with plenty of Marshalls and three water/gel stations.
Lots of encouragement from the marshalls who were very friendly as well as a few locals dotted around the course. The only gripe I have (and this is personal taste) is that there was a bit too much tarmac. It was otherwise a great day good value for money with a nice race T-shirt at the end too.

In short: First time I've been given a posy of flowers during a race :-) In full: This is a hard 10 miler and my goal was to try and run as much of it as I could - which I did (apart from one very small section towards the top of a hill - had to stop to open a gate and couldn't get going again). Marshals were very supportive and encouraging as were passerbys - but the highlight was being given a posy of flowers at about the 5 mile mark by a little girl and being told "I deserved the best prize". Made my day and I proudly carried them all the way, with a big smile on my face. Date of review: May 20, 2012
In short: Challenging but excellent fun/massocism - not sure which In full: Round about the 2, 3 mile mark I was thinking it was going to be a long day but fortunately the relentless climbing stopped. This is significantly harder than 10 miles on the flat but great views and a god friendly spirit among the runners. Date of review: May 20, 2012
In short: Hilly, fun, stunning and extremely well organised as ever. In full: Don't expect a PB this is a tough race. It's pretty much uphill for the first 4 miles. Brilliantly organised, friendly and encouraging marshalls. It's a challenge but very rewarding particularly the last mile and a half which is all downhill to the finish. Great fun I would thoroughly recommend this. Oh yes and the scenery I just stunning! Date of review: May 20, 2012
