General Information


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.


Check the runner list on the table - remember the number against your name and inform our friendly registration team of that number. They'll sort everything from there!


Bag storage is available for one small bag per runner.

What to wear

Road trainers and your club vest if you have one - show us your colours!!!


The route starts and finishes at Loseley House and follow roads into Guildford, over The Mount (avoiding the A31), down past Watts Gallery and into the rear entrance of the Loseley Estate, behind Withies Pub. The surface is 90% road and 10% gravel track. No mud.
