Leith Hill Half 2018

11am, Sunday 8 April 2018 (come early for the UK wife Carrying Race at 10.30am)

The Leith Hill Half Marathon is based at the Priory School, Dorking. The run starts on the Nower (courtesy of Surrey Wildlife Trust), proceeds along footpaths and bridleways to the picturesque village of Westcott, and then turns left to climb up the rural byway of Wolvens Track to the Plough Pub at Coldharbour, before making a righ-hand turn to scale the last few hunded metres of ascent to the top of Leith Hill, the highest point in southeastern England (and with views of distant London and the South Downs on a clear day). Apparently there is no higher ground between Leith Hill and the Urals. The route returns along the same track, back to the finish.

Hot food will be provided in the school cafeteria at the end of the race.
