Lawbrook Lane, Peaslake, Surrey, GU5 9QW
5km, 10.5km or 21km trail running through the forests of Hurt in the Surrey Hills. What is this race like? The clue is in the name…
The Route Director was born in the Forests of the Hurtwood and has been running through them ever since he could stand. He knows them thar hills and he knows which will hurt and which will not. In 2018 the routes will be tweaked and some of those hills will be added. As all the distances will be extended, for some it will be a case of ‘we meet again’. For others it will be ‘glad to meet you. I’ve heard so much about you…’
When you enter, assume distances are approximate. ie approximately 5k, approximately 10k and approximately 21k.
The route has been finalised. Please scroll down to the course section for profile and link to the route.1 lap is just over 10.7k. The 5k is 5.4k.
A choice of trail runs all of which climb through the enchanted pine forests of the Greensand Ridge in The Surrey Hills. These off road runs will offer magnificent views and superb scenery as you race through the alpine -esq forests of "Little Switzerland".
