The Woldingham Half and Full follows an out-and-back course and sees Half marathon runners complete it once, and Marathon runners twice.
Runners will start at Woldingham School and head out along the green valley towards the North Downs Way before reaching amazing Southern views of Kent and Surrey.
Next, runners will follow the short trail path straight through the wooded area onto Granger Hill and down to Tandridge Hill. A narrow, uphill path awaits which will bring you up to the top of the hill. From here, the North Downs Way awaits.
Runners will enjoy breathtaking views along the North Downs Way, down to the bottom of the hill for a short, scenic section of the Vanguard Way.
Next comes a stretch along the Ridge, and from here it's rolling hills left and right as you reach the turning back point.
Runners will then run up the grassy hills towards the trees and along the enclosed trail path back to the Ridge and straight down the Chalk Pit Lane.
Following the path along takes runners steeply up Pitchfront Lane back past Botley Hill Farm. The last section of the route follows the pedestrian path and reaches Knights Garden Centre, travels across Limpsfield Road over to High Lane, and then towards Woldingham Golf Club.
Finally, run along Park Ley Road, onto Woldingham Road and under the railway bridge for the last 2 miles as you cross the finish line.

What a fantastic course. Absolutely loved it, very challenging but that it the point. Amazing organisation and the course was very well marked out. Will definitely do again.
5.0Did the Marathon in 2021
This is a stunning testing race, superb location, it has it all, roads paths trails, hills, fast flats, I have done this now for the last 3 years and will be back for my 4th in 2020. The weather seems to be great, twice now 30degs.
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
I didn't enjoy this course. The hills were ridiculously steep and plentiful - unless you are an elite athlete you will find yourself walking a fair chunk of this course, which entirely defeats the object. It was a cross country course - single file through the woods, nothing like a marathon course IMO. As we were running down a single file track trying to avoid the tree stumps, brambles and nettles, the quicker runners were coming back towards us along the same single file path at one point. My fault for not doing my homework, but don't enter this race if you want a nice flat 'run' - you won't be able to run for a fair chunk of it. There's no mile markers and very few signs so you are reliant on having another runner in view to know which way to go.On the plus side, the views when you reached the summit, were amazing - and the water stations had jelly babies :-)
Did the Half Marathon in 2019
Hilly terrain along with hot weather made for a challenging course, but it was great fun! Really nice atmosphere, helpful volunteers and stunning countryside views.
