Well done to everyone who raced today. Our last Runners Need G3 for 2014 – but we’ll be back for 2015.
1 March results
New car share service: GoCarShare
We’re holding our sweepstake again. Bring £1 so you can guess the time of the fastest runner to complete the segment.
Please help Philippa from Guildford Sports Clinic by completing her dissertation survey. - Only takes a minute!
Please note the G3 Series is a cross country run. You will come across hilly terrain, mud, uneven ground, tree roots etc. We recommend wearing off-road trainers if you have them. The 1st March route includes a section of road – so don’t wear your spikes.
Now into it's 10th year the Runners Need G3 running series is well renowned
for its tough cross country routes. Nevertheless we are always suprised 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.
