Wave 1 – 10:00am
ABOUT THE EVENT
The HellRunner trilogy arrives at a dastardly new venue for 2014. Don’t be fooled by the beautiful surroundings. We’ve found hills, thrills and wet stuff aplenty for Hell In The Middle!
The Brooks HellRunner is over multi-terrain and varying underfoot conditions. There will be everything from running tracks and trails to water-filled areas and plenty of steep hills. Expect to get cold and wet! It will be nature at its toughest. The course will be marked but do not expect to see mile or kilometre markers….that’s for those softy road running types. All you need to know is that the course will be probably more than 10 and less than 12 miles in length. Hey! With what we have in store, who’s counting?
IT IS NOT NECESSARY THAT YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SWIM BUT PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THE COURSE MAY WELL BE UNEVEN, SLIPPERY, STONY AND WET…
The Brooks HellRunner – We’re talking REAL TRAIL RUNNING!
All runners will start together at 10am
Hell In The Middle takes place at Belvoir Castle, Grantham, Leicestershire, NG32 1PE.
