This year’s event – the 38th – took place on Sunday 26th June 2022.  As usual we welcomed a high quality field of both local runners and some who had traveled considerable distances to compete in this challenging event, which takes in the stunning and varied scenery of the North Downs, passing through farmland, orchards, woodland – and even vineyards!

The race was won by Paul Fauset of Dark Peak Fell Runners in a time of 1.56.42, with Tom Collins of Medway & Maidstone AC in 2nd place in 1.58.37 and Fabien Lassondre of Victoria Park Harriers taking 3rd place in 1.58.43.  For the ladies, Victoria Gill of Winchester & District AC took first place in 2.12.23, followed in 2nd place by by Chelsea Baker of Royal Navy Athletics Club in 2.19.51 with  Victoria Buck of Veterans AC taking 3rd place in 2.25.50.

The men’s Team prize was won by Blackheath & Bromley Harriers, closely followed by Istead & Ifield Harriers, with Medway & Maidstone AC taking third spot.

For the Women, Winchester & District C took first place, with Kent AC second and Victoria Park Harriers and Tower Hamlets AC in third place.
