Sorry Lindi :-(

But I haven't run in about 3 month so didn't feel up to it.

EP I was pretty tired after trailwalk but have have no ides why as I spent a good proportion of the time snoozing :-)

Oh dear Josie, hope you will be back on your feet again soon - big hug honey :-)

Not sure why I am looking on here..maybe as I live in walking distance of it!

So what's it's really like, just a 8 mile run through mud and puddles?

If I don't do it I will come and support!

in Grim 8 does does the army provide helmets?????

I've run the past two years but the loss of the horse jumps,hills and wading puddle at the end left me feeling a bit short changed last time (especially with the last 2-3 miles on flattish sand).

Yeah the T-shirts are good but for the price you pay I guess thats a minimum requirement.

That said if you haven't run this before I'd recommend giving it a go.
I may run but it does clash with the Tadley Christmas XC mudfest, which is usually a good race.....

Didn't read from the start of the thread, so sorry if someone's already mentioned this, but the over-riding, lasting impression of this run is not the mud or the puddles.



IT'S COLD !



Have run this as a company event for the past two years, and it is GREAT FUN. Seem to remember it being a whole lot grimmer in 2003 than it was earlier this year. Agree with Dustin - the horse jumps and the wading pond made the whole event the first time around. Definitely in for this December, tho'.

Sleigh bells ring,
Are you listening,
Through the lanes,
Snow is glistening,
Wade through the pond,
Where they filmed James Bond,
Running in the Nike Grim 8 Run.

This is a poss for me as I am off that weekend??

I need convincing that this is a good way to spend £17 :-))
06/09/2004 at 07:53
Yes, Imelda!!!!!

Actually, maybe not, I guess it isn't necessarily good value for money but I want to finally meet you :-)

I enjoyed it this year and am doing it again so I think it's an excellent way to spend £17. I mean, that's hardly going to buy any shoes, is it?

You might need to buy new shoes afterwards though :-)

I will deserve new shoes afterwards!!

Will enter this week :-)

Imelda is working hard at convincing me to do this. I only start my run/walk programme this week. She points out that it's always good to have a goal to aim for which I am inclined to agree with. Am I being foolhardy? :-(

Being ex-navy I remember being forced to do this once a week every week with 'nasty' people hurling abuse at me. Am I likely to have flashbacks to a previous life? ha ha ha

Hiya, just entered and was wondering about spectators,etc. How user-friendly are parts of the course for spectators, well-wishers, people laughing and pointing at you, etc.
