With less than two weeks to go, runners and canicross participants are invited to take part in the Hard As Snails run in Surrey. Located at the Chantry Woods, Guildford on 27 September, entrants have 5k and 10k options both of which take in the chalk ridges and woodland trails of Surrey Wildlife Trust’s land on the rural outskirts of Guildford.
Local athlete Tish Jones said of last year's event: “I am always looking for new trails, so it was great to explore the North Downs. The marshals were all very cheery, which made the race.” New for 2015 is a 2k kids event. Children can come along and get a taste for running with a focus firmly on participation. They’ll complete a short, clearly marked loop exploring the woodland trails.
Prizes are provided by Fitstuff, the running and fitness specialist based in Guildford. Check them out for all your run kit. To enter visit the event website.
