(Member blog post) Newquay Airport 10k

Yes, you read that right – Newquay, Cornwall! Krysh and I were in Cornwall for our anniversary, spotted this event and decided it sounded pretty unique and better than just a training run.

So…..I may have mentioned this at training….currently recruiting some fellow tough mudders for this race on Saturday the 12th May (11:20am start time) in the South East Midlands:
Basically, it’s a 10 – 12 mile run with some rather hectic and well, fun, looking obstacles along the way!!
Our team is called ”Tough stuff”, so all you need to do is click on the link below and sign-up to join us!
It’s a little bit pricey, but you get a t-shirt, beer and after-party which we can make the most of!
Go on!

(Member blog post) 20 miles of joy?! Something like that, perhaps.

Last Sunday Fi and I (plus one sibling and some friends) embarked upon what was quite possibly the most poorly organised, would-be cross country (though unadvertised as such) twenty miler we’d done.
