Race Report: Hogs Back Road Race 2012

The organisers of the 2012 Hogs Back Road Race, All About Triathlons, sent us this report from the event  in Loseley, Guildford, UK. The runners set off on a clear morning on 2nd December 2012.

Race Report

456 hardy souls decided that Sunday and it’s frosty morning was the day for a run up and over the Hogs Back – the large long hill to the west of Guildford. At 11.7km the new safer (no major A31 main road) route is a bit over a kilometre shorter than the old route (at 8.2 miles) and starts and finishes at Loseley House – going over to Guildford and then up and along the Hogs Back, past the TV masts and then descending through Compton and back into the House – along the tree lined avenue to cross the finish line.

The race itself was won by Tom Robertson (#476), in 40:52 and Tish Jones (#296) in 44:03.

Tish had fought off a particularly hard challenge from Jenny Jagger (#283) 44:06 by only 3 seconds at the finish having been behind on the hill climb up to the Hogs Back. Fiona Love (#339) put in an awesome sprint finish for 45:36. Ben Evans brought the home team Guildford and Godalming AC back in a respectable 2nd place with 41:28
