If the second is as hard as the first, then........ HELP.......

1st race was great, well organised, great marshalls, the second over a differnt course, will it be better, or will be harder, or a bit of both.......

See you there.

After the first race you'd be mad to miss the second!!

Great event, marshal’s fantastic and looking forward to the whole series.

PS:- Can anybody explain how to get my new white socks clean, Persil non-biological isn't working!!!

What sort of times were people doing in this?
09/01/2007 at 13:17
Bald eagle, its hard to say as course was long, but, I normally come in around 40-42 mins for 10k, this took me 1:02:17, even at 11 - 11.5k that would be 46-48 mins, so I would add at least 15 mins to your 10k time.

Its not easy to race...... but is excellent training strength and stamina value.

Rory - I see that you are warming us of St Marthas back areas on the Jan thread, Its her front Im worried about too.......

RFJ- Do you know of any similar events in the Surrey Hills area? The jan g3 was one of my favourite events so far? Looking forward to Feb event, know what to expect next time!

Hogs Back (but thats only just gone as has the longmoor lollop)Look in the events finder for Surry on this site, it may help you..

There is the Midsummer Munro and the picnic in June july time (the hardest half and Mara in Britian.....) all around Box Hill near Dorking.....

See you in Feb.

Hogs Back is nice run but doesn't compare with G3 as it is on road. G3 much better races. LDWA Surrey do a number of long distance walk/running events in similar areas.

St Matha's back passage is the worst section on this course by a long way. Steep and narrow with most people resorting to walking.

I await her for her full glory to be shown in Feb......... (HHHEEELLLLPPPP)

I found the Jan G3 event extremely tough. Was relieved to get to the top and pass the church...the devastated when i saw it was on the way back too. Took me 15 mins longer than a normal 10K.

See you in Feb!

Me to Rigadon but we will both be back for more in feb and march. Its a great test.

About 75% of Marthas back passage in Feb. The last (and killer) 40 yards has been missed off I think.

Takes me half hour longer than flat 10K but apparently Jan was nearer 7 miles.

March is evil.

Going over there this weekend for the four leaf clover. Thats up and down Martha from the four points of the compass plus the run to the far end like in Jan race. Plus the longest parts of all the races in one hit. With the recent weather, it should be awful.

Tally Ho.

i have G3'd since the begining of the series and I love them. In order I love - the cross country and scenery, the 8.45 start and the saturday race- All in all i enjoy the feeling at 11 am on a Saturday of virtuousness and well-being.... But hey - means i can enjoy saturday eveing and the accompaning beer all the more....

Sounds like fun Dustboy.....

Hope Marta's back passage is not as windy as it was here yesterday...... it will be hard, but if its windy it will be harder.....

Off for a long run this weekend....

Deep meaningful ouch. The four leaf clover is a bit of a bu66er. 2 hours easy pace. Reckon about 9-10 miles? Maybe a bit less?

Course is quite dry apart from the little bit just before you turn right to go up Marthas back passage. Family with a buggy there having not a lot of joy. In the end I just waded through it and got messy.

Great run though. And it even rained a bit!

I ran the Jan route on Saturday, and although as Dustboy says it is quite dry, there are a few trees blocking the route, and generally lots of branches down everywhere. Had to 'pick those knees up' in order not to stack it. And Sunday I ran down the back passage of St. Marthas, and found that tough enough. Just have to laugh and get on with it I guess!

Could be fun and games if the cold snap comes in...... all the ruts etc, make sure the ankles are well and truely protected......

Good running from you both Wozza and Dustboy..
