Well funnily enough Mikey we didn’t want to put anybody off but the snake as turned. Or in this case returned.

Now you’re scaring me thought you were a bit strange but didn’t know you had a thing about legs.

At least when yours go through the water on the race you can get the mud off from last years cross country.

Dear God, just left the Christmas Pud 10M thread!?!?!!?

Just to add to the confussion, I thought I'd come and mess this thread up too .....

...... Is this one a road race? and Waylander, is your forum pic from this event cos it's putting me off a little? and do you get a chritmas pudding for this one ;-)

Seem to be following you RC - don't do off-road as a rule but thought I'd take a peek.

--- know what you mean about Waylander's pic. looks like a scene from Counter Strike or possibly the streets of B'ham :)

Hi all, would anyone mind telling me a wee bit about the course? am thinking i might give it a bash. would need to fly down from scotland so need to know if its worth it, and what i would be letting myself in for.

Have so far only ran 5k, not sure if this would be a good first 10k?

Now then, streets of Brum, err no but I can see why people would think that.

Is it from the event? No, far too tame.

Is it worth flying down from Scotland? This is defiantly one of our areas better runs for enjoyment in terms of getting down and dirty but it is not what you would do if you want to get a 10k PB. Not least because I think it is slightly over 10k but if you want great fun in an excellent setting this is the one.

Nibbs who told you what provocation meant?

Hi Nix,

The race name is quite accurate - there's plenty of hills throughout (some with steps), stiles, narrow bridges, the stream (with about 2 miles to go) which a few years ago did go past my waist and "Jakes Ladder" at the end which is about 120? steps up a steep hill.

The race depends on the weather - if it's wet there'll be ankle deep mud to contend with and some years a 1/2 mile straight is missed out on safety grounds (I think it was last year?) People sliding down the hills is a common sight, as is trainer-less runners at the finish courtesy of the mud.

As for travelling down from Scotland, it depends how serious you are about running - I find it a really challenging course but you really feel like you've achieved something at the end!

nibbs: I was a little concerned by his self-portait piccie.
24/09/2005 at 11:28
Come on guys cast a look at all the pictures I don’t think we want to go there even if Nibbs does give a false impression.

Thanks for the advice it sounds great. I will start looking at flights.

Caz - have you got the entry forms then?

Though, bit scared to enter to advance. I'm ALWAYS injured for this one. And the way things are going, can't see things being much different this year ;-(

Well after a long lay off, Ive filled my form in again and posted it off. It was great fun last year and enjoyed watching the nutters mud sliding at the end
