Great fun and challenging race

A fantastic event. This was me third year taking on the challenge and despite the weather it was another superb morning. 

 

Excellent to have pacers this year to tackle the challenging 11.7km race.  Whilst advertised as a road race, there is a good 2km that I would describe as trail but all good fun.  Lots of climbing in the first half and an enjoyable downhill and mostly flat second half. 

 

Would highly recommend to people!

Hilly run

This was the second time I completed this event and it was, well, ok.  Obviously you cannot blame the organisers for the weather and all the mud, but I think some sort of cover against the rain would be welcome - after all the organsiers encouraged the early arrival...

The race instructions suggest you arrive early (from 7am...for a 9am start) and that regisitration closes at 8:30am (it didn't by the way).  So I arrived around 8am (rain, sleet, traffic) got my number, froze, got soaking wet... and ended up (like so many other people) having to jog back to my car and sit in it for half an hour.  Why not just post the numbers out?

Had I got there at 7am I could have had the pleasure of sitting in my car closer to the start line... great. But no thanks...it looks like it takes even longer to get out afterwards.

This event started and finished in Loseley Park but that is it - the actual buildings in the park (that might have offered some heat or rain protection) are not available to runners and most of the run is achieved after turning left out of the gate.

The route is its saving grace however, quite a challenge up and down hills and a muddy trail section which is fun (albeit slippery when wet).  The marshalls were few in number I thought (perhaps beaten by the rain).  Those that were there did their best, though on the trail section I saw several walkers (and runners going in the opposite direction) getting in the way a bit.

Post race you have to collect your medal yourself, rather than be presented with it.  No change in the design from last year (it must be a thing) and a banana/bottle of water advertising the Surrey Half.  

I think this event is missing something - some energy, some ooompppfff.

If this review feels a bit flat, that's probably how it left me feeling afterwards.  Some love it, fair enough - for me, it doesn't live up to the hype.

And there wasn't a post run Hog Roast afterwards (denied!).  You could have had black sausages in a bap or black pork patties in a bap, if that floats your boat... I can't comment on the taste as I swerved them.

What a good run this is!

This year was my second time for this one.  Last year was a bright sunny frosty morning; cold and wet this time!  Nonetheless a large cheerful turnout, quick registration, bag drop, water station + jelly babies, and local people encouraging us on at various points along the route....and the excellent Hog-shaped medal and correspondingly shaped Garmin/Strava course!!

A great distance with a mix of flat and hill

The weather was awful, but we all turned out in force. Runners were advised to arrive by 7.30am  (to get parked easily) for a 9am start which was a bit of a pain, but seeing the others parked further away struggling to get out of the mud it all became worth it. 

Portaloos, registration and food stations all close together. 

I think the terrible weather hampered my enjoyment a little as my feet were completely frozen until about the 3km mark, but having said that it was a great route and a great distance. 

Huge thanks to organisers and marshals on such a freezing and wet morning. 

I was pleasantly surprised to get home and see that we had run in the shape of a hog. Clever.
