A weekend of good bright weather and great running on Saturday near Guildford at the last of the Snow and Rock G3 races saw Sam Gardner clean up across the series. All three race galleries are online now and with free screen resolution (800px long) images ready to download and use wherever you want to i.e. facebook, blogs, emails etc.
The Gallery can be found here, as can links to the other two G3 races:

Sundays Steyning Stinger saw my car thermometer at -4.5degC as I set off in the morning to get up to the 5 mile point with all my kit ready for the view. The overnight cold temperatures had removed most of the moisture from the air and I had clear views over to Box Hill and the Hogs Back from the first Sting. A nice wide angle lens to get the background in made for some nice panoramas and landscapes in the background. You could see the Hostpital at Haywards Heath quite clearly...
After everyone had passed me on the course I rounded out back to the Finish whilst Mick was at about the 8.5 mile point also covering the field. Unfortunately that meant I missed the first early starters from the Half Marathon - and some of you quick ones ! but the view from the 5 mile point was so good it really had to take priority and I got 99% of you there - so you'll understand if we don't have you at the finish too.

All the gallery pictures for both these races are online and free to download as many as you want for your own personal purposes (i.e. facebook, email, fetcheveryone.com blogging etc) You can even download your friends photos and send them a copy if you want to .
They are 800pixels on the longest side - which is ideal for practically all online and electronic use, and you could print a good 6x4 image from them if you want to. Any larger, then you'll need to get yourself the high resolution image, or simply buy a print from the gallery as usual and there are no watermarks of other logos on the purchased copies...
So there you have it, another great event delivered by Steyning AC - probably the best signposted off-road marathon in the country, and with views like the ones we had on Sunday - probably going to win the "best off road view race in the world ever" category if you get voting now: - there's some great reviews on there already !
Great to see you all, the regulars, the not so regulars, the strong Essex contingent, the Marshals, Bob, Diane, Debbie, and everyone else, too many too mention you all, but you know who you are !
Right, off to get some sleep and also time to plan next weekends half marathons and 20 milers - have a look here if you're stuck for things to do:
