    I absolutely love the LDWA events as I love trail running in the countryside and avoiding as much road as possible. You do need to be happy with following a very detailed route description which is not to everyone's taste. GPX files were available for the Punchbowl though. You need to remember that this is a walking event that allows runners though so don't get stroppy if you leave too early and arrive before a CP opens. If you like fast routes with crowds cheering you on then the Punchbowl is not for you. However if you like running in the countryside at a great value event with friendly volunteers and well stocked check points - then I thoroughly recommend the Punchbowl and other LDWA challenge events.

    Low key, friendly event across the Surrey Hills. Event open to runners and walkers (and everyone in between) so a good spread across the field with walkers starting earlier and runners starting later. No set start time, so just turn up and go. Interesting route - easy to follow route guide and GPX available if you need it.

    The weather this year was kind it rained all the prior night but it stopped at start time. The course predominantly on trail is a mixture of single-track through woods and wide fire-tracks, the view when circumnavigating the rim of the Punchbowl are outstanding, the course is nearly 3000 ft, but didn't fell that hilly.Value for money, LDWA cannot be beaten... refreshments at start, at each of the CPs were fantastic, well stocked and super friendly, then beans on toast at the finish bargain.
