Race courses in London/SE with uphill(ish) finish?

Postby Mr.B-Campag » Mon Mar 25, 2019 18:44 pm

Looking to see where I might focus on this year to get a result. I'm no sprinter, and not a pure climber either - but I'm not bad at sprinting up not too steep inclines. The old HIllingdon finish (at the top of the 'hill') used to suit me but looks like that isn't used any more now they have the gantry. I guess Crystal Palace might work (tho I realise there is a dip before the line). Do any of the other London circuits or e.g. Surrey League events finish up a slight hill (probably up to about 5%)? I've looked at the circuits thread but am not much wiser.

Thanks.

Hog Hill and Gravesend circuits both have drags to the finish. Hog Hill more so...

As for open road circuits, pretty much all of them will finish on a drag, or otherwise on a hill top or similar. Anything to slow the bunch down over the line...
