Where’d we go?
We headed South out of Woking towards Sutton Green, then into Jacobs Well. Next up was North up the A320 towards Mayford, before switching back and returning to Jacobs Well. We then went West on Burdensholtt road towards Worplesdon, before heading East back to Woking.
The mini rolling hills. They were just enough to wake up the glutes, but not so steep you were left wishing for the down.
The switch back… it was a longen! We trudged out for a full mile and a half, before turning directly back on ourselves, running all the way to hit mile 8 and finally turn off.
Why this Race…
We think this is the perfect ‘first half marathon’. It’s well organised, and kept quite small so the start, finish and race itself run very smoothly, making for a stress free, happy half.
