The Three Molehills

Hi there. I'm wondering if many attempt the 3 hills as an individual event? If so is there a cut off time?

    There is no cut off time for individuals. Not sure how many individual runners there are, but it's a great run if you like hills. image
  • Ok this is good. I may take the plunge and go for it.
  • Hi Allyson,

    We have the approx the same number of individuals as teams at the mo.  It's a beauty (although a tad hilly as the name implies image)

    Don't worry about the time.  I'm the slowest person in the world and I'm very rarely last and we'll save you a nice shiny medal and Mars Bar even if you find youself at the slightly less than pointy end of the race image

  • Hi Happy chap.
    I feel better knowing I am not alone in being the slowest person in the world. It looks like a have a date with the 3 hills then. I'm in image
  • Are there still individual places in this? I'll be slow but it looks like fun!
  • Should one wear road or trail shoes for this? image
  • Hello

    Team and Individual entries now closed.  Individual entries will re-open for on the day entries at 8.30am on Sunday morning.  Team entries are now full.  image

    HH.  Trail shoes for the first leg, road shoes for the second two image  On overall balance I'd use road shoes I think.

  • Hopefully individual entries won't fill up if I just turn up on Sunday. I'm waiting to see what effect tomorrow's weather might have before I take a decision on shoes.

  • Helly D - you'll be fine for individual entries image We'll come back with a terrain report once we've had a good look on Saturday but for now I think road shoes will be fine.
  • Road shoes -

    Leg 1 - The Steps up Boxhill could a bit slippy if wet but the descent should be hard as it is nice and open.

    Leg 2 - Most the tracks over Norbury are still fine for road shoes (been over it on Monday night)

    Leg 3 - All of the track up from Denbies is road shoe all year. Iffy bit through trees to water station but only a few hundred meters.

    Unless it pours down Saturday then road shoes by far the best option.

  • Thanks Happychap - I've been known to overpack so I'll probably bring a couple of pairs and make a decision on the day. Hopefully I'll compensate for walking a lot of the Box Hill bit with a storming performance on the downhills image After all  there is a bottle of beer at the finish.

     Hold on, if I'm doing all three legs shouldn't I be getting three bottles of wine? 

  • haha Helly D. 

    I see M.eface has beaten me to it and got the course report pretty much spot on.   image

    See you all tomorrow.

    Great race. Really enjoyed that. Marshalling and signage all clear, and gels at the end of lap 2 a nice touch.

    Well done guys - hopefully be back next year.

  • Well done to all that ran today...we had a great time marshalling at the point just before the underpass...do not think we sent anyone the wrong wayimage
  • Cheers Happychap - I can't imagine organising that was easy. you even arranged the weather. Suspect i will feel this tomorrow.
