This was my first half-marathon and the course did not disappoint. The undulating trail through the beautiful countryside was perfectly waymarked and manned by really friendly marshals. I thoroughly enjoyed the race and would strongly recommend it.

I ran the half marathon distance and loved it. Muddy fields and paths, prolonged 6% ascents, and a little local tourism thrown in. Sunshine and vistas over the Ashdown Forest, friendly marshals and volunteers; everything I like in a cross-country course. I’m sure I’ll be back in 2023! I might suggest no need for medals in future, but I understand they are important to some. The buff was a nice touch - it's a better design and fit than many I've purchased so will be wearing it with pride.

A well organised event which had a lovely feel to it. Small event in the lovely village of Hartfield. On the Half Marathon route, Marshalls handed out water around the course and were there to provide assistance if needed. A very muddy and quite hilly course, but great fun! Could be difficult to park if the event gets busier.

A very friendly event with a good HQ with changing space and a shower available. Good food and drink selection. Excellent that the money raised funds admirable local charities. Course was a tough one as advertised, hilly, very wet underfoot, with muddy bits and some technical stuff, such as descents through gullies. Could have been better signposted (or marshalled) - at one point early on, all the 10k leaders turned right (signposted), but into a farmyard, instead of what they should have done - gone through a very small gap in a hedge to run across a field. Disappointing that, four days later, the results have still to be posted.

Challenging cross country course. Challenging ascents, reasonably technical descents, muddy fields, tree roots, and stiles. Brilliantly organised, friendly volunteers, great food and drink. Only reason I dropped one star was the medals were disappointing (said 2020) and the constant mention of a T-shirt in the marketing was misleading since there wasn’t one! I’ve already put it on the calendar for 2023!
Hi Pippa, Thank you for your wonderful review; it means so much to us. I'm sorry about the medals and t-shirts (although buffs were given to half marathoners). To avoid waste we reused the cancelled 2020 medals but rest assured that next year we will have new medals. Best wishes, The Hartfield Honey Run team
