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!

Challenging course, but the out and back (ie. mainly uphill, then mainly downhill) nature of it means that at the turnaround point, more than 50% of the work is done and the run home is much easier. God bless the wonderful marshals, cheerful and encouraging whatever the weather. Hot (ish) showers and a fabulous cooked breakfast after the race. Apparently there was swimming available too, though I didn't have the energy. Thanks for another great race Trionium!

Beautiful course to the top of Leith Hill and back from Dorking. It's almostly entirely run on trails with significant elevation (hence it isn't one for the PB). Well organised, signed and a lovely t shirt and cooked breakfast at the end.

Fabulous race, as always. Great marshals & excellent organisation. Thanks Rob, Mrs Rob and all helpers for another great trionium event. Even if, like Amanda, it was a PW for me! I'll be back next year....

What a fantastic day. Mud and 'puddles' memorable and tough going but beautiful route with brilliant marshalls along the way. Everyone so encouraging. Trainers hosed down (should have just ignored the mud right from the start and gone for it - note to self for next time!) and already looking forward to next year! Thank you to everyone for making it such a great event.
