They then detour through St Laurence Churchyard, and Seale, on towards, Totford Hatch and all the way to Puttenham Village.

At The Good Intent Pub, half marathon runners leave. The marathon continuing along the North Downs Way via Watts Gallery, St Catherine's Lock and onto the summit of Martha's Hill.

From St Martha's, the route heads over to nearby Pewley Down, joining up the Pilgrim's Way road descending to Shalford Park, then cross the River Wey footbridge, to the ruins of St Catherine's Chapel and pick up the North Downs Way, to take runners back to Watts Gallery again.
