How undulating is undulating? I'm very bad at hills and usually walk cos it's quicker than my running up 'em!

My husband did it in the autumn and found it hillier than he expected it to be. But he achieved a good time (1 hour 25 for his first ever 10 miler - since then he's got down to 1 hour 20) and the first three miles are pancake flat on the aerodrome. I think they are the kind of hills you can run up and there are lots of downhill bits.

It's a good race. not much in the way of support but great medal and jellybabies en route.

I am hill phobic and don't remember it being too bad. I did the 20 2 years ago and I think my spilts were fairly consistent.  Don't let the hills put you off.  It's a good race.

Thanks. Worst case I can walk the hills and run fast down.....gravity should be in my favour after all the Christmas and Valentines chocolates!

Hi, I am a hill phobic as well but ran the 10-mile race last year without any problems.

My time was quite good (1h10'17'') and I ended the race without any painful feeling .

I have just signed up for the next one as I was extremely happy with last year's edition.

Wish I had your legs. Mine will take me about 1h50!

Well, that's why we have to train (on hills as well)!!!!!

Any ideas for getting to this by public transport? The race info says the nearest station is Witley, at 3 miles away, but it's actually over 7. I was going to get a bus from Guildford but they don't run on Sundays. I'm not keen to pay for a taxi, but a 7 mile walk each way might be pushing it a bit!

Sorry, I have no clue how to get there by bus or train. I will drive from Woking!

Mm, have looked into it more today and am thinking bike. My legs may fall off though...
