My first post one here so I thought I would tell you about the Puma Hellrunner I completed back at the end of November. It took place at the Longmoore Military Camp down in Hampshire and it was freeeezing! The route was ‘between 10 and 12 miles’ (they dont give a specific distance) over cross country and a few bogs (the worst being the ‘Bog of Doom!’). Up to your chest in black water trying to get to the other side and then running for another few miles soaking wet!
Some very steep hills and some very scary descents were thrown in for good measure particularly when the legs are tired and fingers and toes cold. I came in a 34th in 01:15 which I thought was quite respectable as it was my first trail run but hoping to do some more. Had to sit in the car for an hour afterwards tho with the heaters on full blast to warm up!
The link can be found here… www.hellrunner.co.uk/helldownsouth.htm and they have a few more lined up in the new year which I hope to get my name down for.
