Surrey Hills Challenge - Half

Date / Time
Sunday, September 23, 2018 at 7:00 a.m.
Length 13.05 miles (21.0 km)
Description

The Surrey Hills Half is for those that want to test their stamina and strength, but are not quite ready for the Ultra or Full. The 21km route starts at The Duke of Kent School, in Ewhurst at 9am. The Half route joins the Ultra and Full, following the Greensand Way, which originates in the heart of Haslemere.

The route is almost entirely on footpath with some road crossings and short stretches of road surface. Sturdy trail shoes are advisable to ensure good grip as you travel up and down the rolling hills of Surrey. The footpaths in places are narrow, with loose gravel, roots and the usual obstacles you would expect to find. There are stiles and gates to navigate and some road crossings where you’ll be helped across by volunteers.

The Greensand Way follows scenic trails that cuts across fields, up and down hills, through hamlets, along ridgeways and woodlands, over, Holmbury HillLeith Hill (highest summit in South England), before you finally ascend up onto the North Downs Way. There’s so much to look at and so many variations in terrain that you’ll never lack conversation topics between yourself and your fellow athletes!

Along the 21km route will be three aid stations, offering a full range of varying food, snacks and drinks. Each aid station is managed by experienced volunteers, many of them runners themselves, and medics who will be checking your progress offering advice and support. You’ll never be left behind - this is an event for everyone.

You’ll finish at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, where medals and prizes are awarded and is also the main hub and meeting point for all our participants and their supporters. With refreshments and entertainment available from 10am until 6pm, it is the heart of the challenge.

When you’re ready to head home, there will be a bus transfer taking you back to the Duke of Kent School and your car. This is only available for our competitors taking on the half and needs to be booked when you complete your registration form.
