Race results are available from Sport Systems here: http://www.sportsystems.co.uk/ss/index.htm

After the soaking at the ETL Spitfire last week it was all eyes on the forecast for Sunday's races.  Driving to the race through a heavy shower on the A24 it was not looking good, but thankfully that was the last of the rain till after the race.

The races are based in the UK's largest single estate vinyard, the Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking which provides a great venue for the races - more details here: http://www.denbies.co.uk/

So in fine conditions the race director - aka "Robin - The Boy Wonder" first got the marathon runners underway.
Robin was on hand to help anyone who had forgotten vital equipment

Race start, off through the vineyard

Somewhat unusual refreshments at the "water station"

The return leg of the lap in view in the background...

Field of dreams ???

Quite pleased to be finished

High fives!

Traditional half marathon Hakka

Strong support along the finish from families and friends

Praying for forgiveness because they only did the half

Another "Jack Nicholson" jumps for joy at the finish

Having far too much fun

Councelling was available for those who found it hard going.

There was a great feel about the race with lots of runners going for the fancy dress option and staying on at the finish to welcome the other runners back whilst enjoying their hog roast, a little wine, and perhaps a post race massage.

Well done to Alan, Nicky and the rest of the Events to Live team on another excellent event.  If you're looking for a half marathon in October then check out their Surrey Badger race with new start/finish location at the Denbies Estate http://bit.ly/Badger-ETL

If you're looking for another challenging off road full or half marathon this coming weekend, then check out the Farnham Pilgrim here:  http://bit.ly/farnhampilgrim

Or for those of you with a mountain bike and multisport tendancies then check out the off road triathlons, duathlons and open-water swim from allabouttriathlons on 24th September, the official British Triathlon Cross Championships for 2011.  More details for these events can be found here:  http://bit.ly/XTD-duathlon-AAT
