The distance approx. 140 km, five laps of Alford and six laps of the Dunsfold Circuit, finishing at Dunsfold Green.

The race was first run as a BLRC event in 1951 won by Chris Hooper, Southern Velo, since then many famous names have won, including Dave Bedwell, 3 times, Les West, 3 times, and Gary Crewe in 1972 when it was run as the National Championships run in the Ashdown Forest. Other names include Brian Wiltshier, Dennis Tarr, Dave Nie , Alan Jacobs, and George Edwards and Terry O'Brien. The last race was won in 1996 by Rob Hurd.

Victor Berlmont ran the York Minster pub in Dean Street, Soho, much used by all the famous sportsmen and artists of the day. 

The French Resistance had its Headquarters there during World War II with De Gaulle at its head. His son, Gaston, took it over when he retired until it was sold in 1989. Gaston was a bubbly character with a huge moustache and great enthusiasm for cycling and at times would get his Chauffeur to drive a pre-war Parisian Bus out to the events. He was Vice President of the BLRC and President of the Southern Velo Cycling Club.
