Hills of Death (HOD)
Get muddy in prep for Hellrunner memories of the Bike ride Day 4 !!!! Stayed in Bath for a couple of nights to aclimatise Nice muddy jog round with Nat was 9 miles had to queue for 15 mins before the big slog. So running for about 1 hour 35 mins. Really nice prep for Hellrunner and X C. Felt good got muddy hey ho.
Fabulous, counting the days till I can enter again
Did this race because of the reputation & justly so for the organisation but the course could be a lot better. I just felt that the course mandered around flattish farmland contrived to include several wet muddy gulleys. There was only one real incline 6 miles in. There is a lot of other more enjoyable testing events out there that offer a lot more variety & a bit more distance. Distinctly lukewarm on this one - will not return.
A good test of cross country but leave the stop watch at home as the delay at the mud hole seems unavoidable but very well organised and enjoyable
The Sodbury Slogbury! Finished 22nd and 4th counter for the Harriers, as we finished 2nd team overall. Had some mud, had some hay bales, had some stiles, had some miles. Could've had more somehow!
280 out of 1035! Ingram was 207th.
This was sh@t this year. and 8 miles was 8.9 miles. Just wasn't the same atmosphere at all. i enjoyed parts of it, and we were 2nd team, so the team spirit was nice, but i won't be doing this one again. This race doesn't deserve all the hype that it gets - far better, more interesting and challenging races out there.
