In short: Beautiful, hilly, friendly, well-organised. In full: This is an undulating hill run through beautiful and varied terrain. We ran through woodland, scenic villages, past ruins and cottages and churchyards, and earned two truly spectacular views of the Surrey Hills.
There is one very steep climb around the half-way point (eased a little by the amazing cheerleading marshall I'm very grateful to). There are plenty of water stations and everybody I ran with was friendly and encouraging. This was a great first marathon. Date of review: September 16, 2013
