What  -   The Hurtwood 50 starts from the pleasant town of Dorking, and follows the Greensand Way into the forested Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  This race is essentially an out and back, with a loop off the Greensand Way before starting the return journey.  The race takes you up and over Leith Hill, Holmbury Hill and Pitch Hill on a well marked, easy to follow trail through the woodlands, ridgelines and valleys of this area that is collectively known as The Hurtwood.  The loop at the western end of these hills takes you off the Greensand Way for a short time before rejoining to make your way back over the 3 hills and to the Finish.   Race route map HERE

Freedom Racing events largely take place off road, and can be on rough, rocky, muddy surfaces in potentially unforgiving outdoor locations and therefore have inherent risks associated with them. It is your responsibility to ensure you are fit and healthy to take part in them and aware of the nature of the event.
