Get off the road and try something different this summer! The Surrey Hill Races will take you along the footpaths of the Surrey Hills and provide a challenge to trail runners, orienteers and adventure racers alike. Depending upon the course you run you may visit the summits of Leith Hill, Holmbury Hill and Pitch Hill – and everyone will run through the beautiful and varied countryside to the south west of Dorking.

These mass start races require simple navigation to visit a series of checkpoints along the way, but a copy of the courses is available in advance and scouting your route beforehand is popular and provides a great excuse for some training runs. A purpose drawn map at 1:40,000 scale is provided to all competitors. To obtain a copy of the map and courses in advance send a 9x6” SAE to the Organiser.

The SPORTident electronic checking system is used instead of the old clip card system. This ensures rapid results processing and provides finishers with a printout of their times to each checkpoint. All competitors will require an SI-Card - if you don't have your own, you can hire one on the day.
