After the fabulous fun had by all at 2011’s event, our attentions have already turned to 2012, for another riot of a run amongst the Pines of Sherwood.
For 2012, we’ll be back, bigger, and even better. For starters, March means an earlier start time for both 5k and 10k, which roughly translates as the chance to camp onsite the night before, more darkness, and more time to relax (party) afterwards. The course will remain relatively unchanged from 2011, with firm favourites the Borrow Hole, the Swamp, and Legendary Spooky Wood all making a welcome return.
Fancy dress is part of the fun, with Lincoln Green top of the what-to-wear list. When the gun goes off, a marauding mob of Merry Maids and Friendly Friars will charge across the starting hurdles, and into the trees, towards the many challenges that await them.
Whether you sign up to the daylight 5k(ish) or the torchlit 10k(and a bit), you’re all welcome to attend the Notorious after-party, with legendary live music and local hospitality, and a chance to sleep soundly in our onsite camping area.
For the 10k, don’t forget your headtorch: you’re gonna need it, right from the start.
