Entries are still available for the opening event of a tough off-road series in Surrey which starts this weekend. The first Runners Need G3 event takes place on Saturday (10 January) at Newlands Corner, near Guidford.
The race is first of three cross country races that are notoriously challenging, taking in all that the Surrey Hills can throw at runners – steep inclines, sticky mud, technical descents, and sand.
However, the post-race brownies and flapjacks make a well-deserved reward. New for 2015 are the G3 medals, there will also be a limited number of technical running t-shirts, given away before the run on a first-come first-served basis.
The top three finishers will receive prize vouchers thanks to event sponsors Runners Need. The other races take place on 31 January and 21 February. Each race starts at 8.30am, entries are £20 per event, £50 for all three or £30 on the day. For entry details, see the G3 series website
