I’m booked on the full TM on the Saturday and wondered if anyone else from NHRR was doing this (or fancied having a day in the mud)?
If you have never done one then don’t be put off by the hype as it’s not as hard as they make out and there is a lot of help on offer (you can even skip obstacles if you really want to) it doesn’t matter.
Prices go up on 29/3, it may seem a bit expensive but the obstacles are way better built and the whole thing better organised than other ‘cheaper’ OCR’s I’ve done.
James - I have to be honest, I can't really see the attraction of these things, and someone must be coining it looking at how much they cost! Running in the mud, yes - I'm all for that. But the cross country season usually satisfies my cravings in that direction - and it's free (for individual club members.) Or do one of Jo and Sue's low-key trail marathons (or longer) more mud, more hills, stiles to clamber over, probably the odd stream to cross - all at a tiny fraction of the price of the TM!
But if you want tough, and you want mud, I recommend you sign up for next year's Ashridge Boundary Run - beautiful scenery, hills, mud, and tea and home made cake at the finish, what's not to like? And all for £18.50 :wink:
I hope you enjoy your outing to TM, anyway! :smile:
I did the half mudder last year and loved it (although I ended up very bruised and battered!)!
