In short: Beautiful views of the whole of the South Coast In full: A lovely little race. There were millions of marshals all nice and cheery although I had to kill a couple for telling me not long to go about four miles out. The course is a good mix of Tarmac, mud and chalk making the descents fun :0). There is a hill in the middle which one may describe as massive if you're not a hill fan. Personally, I loved the climb, the views and a descent as good as any you'll find on the South Downs. The mile markers were well out and I personally could have done with another water station. But overall, a really nice race. Date of review: October 14, 2012

In short: Thank you Reigate In full: Our Improvers group who used this event for their 'graduation' had a ball. We love that we are made to feel really welcome and supported here. The marshals were fab. Organisation is great. The start/finish in priory park suitable and convenient and the route is lovely. Thank you and see you next year Date of review: July 4, 2012
In short: Thank you Tadworth AC In full: A lovely race that I hadn't done for a couple of years. It was great to kick start the new year with such a nice race.

In short: Lovely half-marathon In full: A lovely way to end the year with a warm glow. Despite the grumps I didn't have any problems at all. No queues for stuff, bus transport worked brilliantly, the walk from the bus drop off to the school wasn't too taxing, loads of loos, the timing pens all seemed to work ok, nice memento, plenty of water stations, loads of cheery marshals and a truly undulating course in a pretty area. Obviously a lot of care and attention had been put into the race, some of it at great cost to the event to ensure everything went smoothly. And it worked, definitely one to put in the calender.
In short: Love it, love it, love it In full: The guys at Beachy did a brilliant job this year. Easy to pick up numbers. Loo queue not too bad. Fab weather out on the course and well stocked checkpoints with cake, mars bars, sausage rolls, crisps and very welcome tea and coffee. But what really makes this event is the runner camaraderie and the bloody amazing marshals some of who must be out there for hours and a still cheery and smiley.
Thank you all for organising a great race. :0) Date of review: October 22, 2011
In full: Lots of cheery marshals and support from the local villages makes this event. The new route made an interesting change with a little more challenge in it. We've done this race lots of times and it's always worth the trip down to the New Forest Date of review: September 25, 2011
In short: Fab event In full: Fab race perfect for faster runners and run/walkers. Marshals amazing, lovely friendly atmosphere and support from faster runners around the course. Will be back next year. Thanx to ARG, Dr Rob and his team. Date of review: September 18, 2011
In short: Lovely race and ta for the cool weather In full: LOL at the fact they brought the start forward to embrace the cooler weather and nearly made it rain. The cooler weather meant that this race was as enjoyable but much faster with several people recording PBs this year. It's a must in the Surrey calendar and would recommend that everyone do this race at least once. A lot of effort goes into organising events. Thank you DMVAC and look forward to seeing you again next yr. Date of review: June 5, 2011
