Seventh time, and it only gets better. The weather was grim, plenty of mud to go round, the hill top was in the clouds. And the finishing touches... The marshals were superb (especially in that weather), the locals were out in force - cheering, the post-run breakfast was great. Well done Dr Rob!

This was my 8th Leith Hill Half and it's the highlight of my running calendar each year! By far my favourite run - beautiful scenery, fantastic marshals and Rob runs a tight ship. A really tough half, but worth it.

As always, Rob and the team organised a brilliant event. The right amount of marshalling, great facilities before and after, nice kit, results on time, and all in all a real sense of occasion. The engagement at the wife carrying beforehand was just the icing on the cake!

Rain, mud and hills all made easier by the wonderful cheerful marshals and full cooked breakfast

One of my all time favoutie races. The weather is such a big factor but the puddles will always be there. The cameraderie on the out and back route, and always love emerging at the top at the tower. As ever the marshals were brilliant, always cheering you on and checking you were both okay and having fun. A huge thank you to Rob and the full Trionium tribe

Fabulous race - amazing atmosphere. Lovely marshalls. No point in even trying to avoid the mud on the way out as it will definitely get you on the way home. Many lakes posing as puddles. Brilliant fun! Just the way races should be and with added National Anthem! (Event tshirt, mug and medal, plus v welcome cooked breakfast and post race swim - even though the puddles were enough of a swim for many)

You’ve got to love getting tired and dirty and putting your body through hell to enjoy this race - but there is nothing surprising if you’ve read the website before entering. It says it’s tough, and it is. But what was a surprise for me was just how far I’d climbed in the first half. It feels like you’re mixing ascent with a bit of descent, but when I got to the turning point wondering how I was going to complete the second half, I was pleasantly surprised at how much of the second half is pure downhill cross country. It was hugely uplifting to be able to run the second half some 15 mins quicker than the first. The rain was actually a bit of a relief as it would have been too warm otherwise and the scenery was magnificent. The same can be said of the organisation and friendliness. This is a race for proper runners, but there was also a warm camaraderie between those who put their bodies through it. Would recommend, but make sure you train!

Tough, hilly, muddy, friendly, and great fun ! My favourite race of last year and this year so far.
