Farnham Pilgrim Half Marathon

Race Date: Sunday, 10/09/2017
Race Distance: Half Marathon

I'd heard good things about this race - nice scenery and cake - so refused to be put off by last minute engineering works. It is somewhat hilly, but reminded me very much of the MABACS - particularly when we emerged onto the escarpment at Puttenham from which you get excellent views (if you are looking) - rather than some of the other Surrey Hills races I've done. Quite a few tracks were single-file but no-one got their cross country elbows out to push past, very civilised. Congratulations to Matt on coming second. The race organisers were also trying a canicross version for the first time (starting a little later than the main race) so in mid-pack we had the pleasure of doggy company.
