The Surrey Half Marathon- Sunday 9th March 2014
This was a brand new race and impecably well organised with over 6,000 entrants.Having entered a few months ago , I immediately discovered that Sunday 9th was the day of the 3uptt and was very miffed. However , the half was great training for our 70.3 Aaghus (Denmark) race in June (so Kim and I kept saying)
We were reminded of our mission with weekly chirpy emails, then daily even chirpier messages by the race organisers , and received our time chipped numbers and tear off bag label by post.
The race start was at the Guildford Stadium.
There was awesome support through the towns from locals and a spectacularly organised race.Having completed a few halfs over the years ( not as many as Mr.M.Evans or Mr.Clyne!) this was even better organised than the Paddock Wood Half and more akin to the London Marathon!
Course was undulating and comes highly recommended by myself and EVEN Kim , who was dragged along by me as a "Virgin run racer" and she really enjoyed herself ( afterwards!)
Next years entrance is out and it starts from Woking town centre instead of Guildford.
