North Downs Way Marathon


Yesterday I completed the North Downs Way Marathon. The significantly cooler temperature coupled with a slight drizzle meant that running conditions were fairly good. The course consisted of two out and back laps, starting near Reigate Hill carpark and following the NDW trail to the Boxhill lookout. The trail is undulating with some steep sections. Very scenic, although given the weather conditions yesterday, the views were initially shrouded in mist.

The winning time was 3:21:47 (Matthew Orford). I ran 4:43:06 – 25th overall and 4th lady. A really super trail marathon.
