Beyond The Far Side
19 Jan 2019
You all had so much muddy joy at this years event that it would just be be downright rude and impolite of us to not put it on again. So.........we will
So what is the challenge? That's easy (to explain.......not the challenge itself.......that's not easy!!) You will be running in a part of the Wiltshire countryside encompassing the edge of Salisbury Plain. The route covers approximately 5.30 miles with an overall elevation of 850ft per circuit. You can choose to enter for a slightly extended circuit as a 10K option or complete as many circuits as you can in 6 or 12 hrs. Sounds straight forward doesn't it. Oh, hang on......there is more. Each circuit will consist of 3 descents from the Plain back down to civilisation. "Not bad" I hear you say. Well............it kinda is really, because after 2 of these descent you have to turn around and go straight back up the hill that you have just ran down. Fun or evil....you decide. You will meet runners on the way down as you are coming back up the same hills. You will also rub shoulders with runners as they are outward bound and you are heading homewards. "Rubbing shoulders" is not a euphuism either .........some of the tracks are quite narrow.
You will find a fully stocked aid station in Race HQ where you can feast yaself as much as you wish. Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy Free, and Gluten Free runners will also be fully catered for.......you won't just find a handfull of Twiglets as your only option!! A bean hotpot will also be provided from the 6 hour point onwards as well.
A unique and bespoke medal also awaits you.......and incase you find yourself victim to a scary gang of badger hoodies (or twist an ankle, etc) then a fully equiped ambulance and medical team will also be present throughout the entire event.
