The Holmbury Hill Half Marathon is also known as the 'Surrey Slog' which rewards runners with stunning views when they reach the top of Holmbury Hill. An excellent value for money off roader which many regard as one of the best races in the south of England.
A tough off road, multi-loop route which takes place mainly on tracks around Holmbury Hill. It is an undulating course with a particularly difficult hill at around the 11-12 mile mark. The organisers warn that this one is not for the faint-hearted - a true test of anybodys stamina through the picturesque countryside of the Surrey Hills.
My first half marathon. Very hilly, start is a bit congested with single file, waiting to get through a gate/stile....well marshalled and marked out. Only water and juice on route, with one jelly baby tub just over half way. Great race, well run, very relaxed, great vibe for first half - not too crowded which is great too...definitely worth it if you fancy a hilly challenge!
