Newlands Corner, Drove Road, Guildford, GU4 8SE
Entry for the Runners Need G3 2016 is now open.
Guildford’s toughest trail events are now in their 11th year. A sell out event attracting the very best and worst runners – it just doesn’t matter, as long as you have a great time.
Medals, brownies, flapjacks, hills and a little mud = excellent fun for all.
Single race entry – £20
Series entry – £50 (limited to 50 places)
Now into it's 12th year the Runners Need G3 running series is well renowned
for its tough cross country routes. Nevertheless we are always surprised to hear that some athletes didn't realise it was hilly until
they've completed the event! It is very hilly, but an achievable challenge.
G3 Series Challenge: Log into Strava and compete for your leader board position on the 'segments.'
