The Hogs Back Road Race is an 11.4 km Guildford & Godalming Athletic road run around the Loseley Estate. Part of Guildford's fine running heritage the event has been held for 58 years. The race leads runners out of the estate along quiet roads, up The Mount (and along a short section of gravel track) for you to enjoy the views, before coming back into the Loseley estate. Take a look at your run trace and you'll have run the shape of a Hog.
This year aat-events will be hiding 12 Golden Pigs around the Loseley site. If you are lucky enough to find one you can collect a bottle of Tongham T.E.A. courtesy of Hogs Back Brewery from the Registration Desk. For full details of the competition please click here.
