Event details

Results of PWC 2.0 are now online. This was the second running of our trail event. Conditions were "challenging", very wet underfoot, and when not wet, sandy. I recall one winter when the River Wey Navigation footpath itself was flooded and almost impassable but this was close.

I hope you enjoyed the courses. When I lived in Merrow years ago I ran these footpaths regularly and continually remain impressed by the terrain just South of Guildford, especially St Martha's and The Chantries - interesting, and at times tough.

If you ran in 2011 there were some similar legs and some differences, enough I hope to retain some interest. I hope to get organised and get Routegadget up within 48 hours. Whilst there was not a lot of route choice, there was on some legs where I would like to see which options were chosen. 

Should there be a 2013 outing it will probably be down to me again. Provisionally there is a date, returning to August when hopefully it is much drier. If I get this off the ground then I hope to start towards the west end of the current map. I have an extended area/map with a large hill and great views over Guildford in store but need to lock in a car park a bit earlier than this year! I also have planned a route which tackles St Martha's south face direct.... In my view the toughest hill climb around Guildford.
