In short: Hilly, boggy fun In full: A wonderful event through some nice countryside. The only way you could get a pb is if it's your first race! There was mud, there were puddles and hills (mountains?!)but it was great fun traipsing through it and the atmosphere, as at all Events To Live events, was first class.
Highly recommended for fun but not for pbs. Date of review: February 3, 2013
In short: Not the one for a pb... In full: A nice little race around some nice countryside, villages and a racecourse. Well organised although a bit of a trek from the main carpark to the start. The marshals were plentiful and cheerful which is always a plus! The hill at the beginning and 5 miles later was a bit of a never ending beast and rules out a pb (for me at least!). Ultimately a good race that was well organised in a nice part of Surrey.
In short: Nice enough! In full: The start of this race took a lot of people by surprise not only was there no warning a lot of people thought it was going to start in the opposite direction! After that it was a fine if uneventful course. Shame that there was so much traffic - fairly dangerous at some points (that was the drivers not runners fault) which was a shame. Nice memento at the end and one water stop in my opinion is plenty for a 10 miler.
All in all good, but not amazing. Date of review: November 19, 2012
In short: A Beautiful Squelch In full: A lovely run through the woods and farm lands around Cranleigh. It was, as most people have stated, very boggy but once you realised that your white trainers weren't going to stay that way it was fun splashing around in the puddles! Shame there wasn't more space for spectators but coming on to the final straight was fun and noisy. Date of review: July 17, 2012
In short: Well organised but dull route In full: I did ultimately enjoy this race and it was well organised and the atmosphere good but I was hoping more of it would be in the park (should have checked the race map). Also on the narrow pavements overtaking was fairly difficult. Still, the sun was shining and course flat so I'm not going to whinge too much! Date of review: May 13, 2012
