North Downs Half Marathon

Race Date: Sunday, 08/07/2018
Race Distance: Half Marathon

A very friendly, well-organised trail race, with the biggest medal I've ever seen. With 2300+ feet of climbing and high temperatures, it was certainly quite a tough race, but in beautiful countryside along a "there-and-back" stretch of the North Downs Way starting near Reigate. The only slight niggle was that there was also a marathon (twice the "there-and-back") which started half an hour earlier, so there was quite a lot of crossing with oncoming runners on very narrow paths. However, one to try for anyone keen to do a challenging trail half or full marathon.
