And we’re back . . . . and hopefully normal service has resumed and we’ll be able to greet you all at the correct time of year for a change!

All the things you love about the Gut Buster will be still be here!! The water crossings, Roman Walls, fields, footpaths, and what is sometimes the hardest last 400m in British Athletics [farmer/ crop rotation dependent]. The epic mudfest of 2017 will be talked about for years to come…what more excuse do you need to escape the family during the holiday season!

In addition to the above there are the rewards which will include the return of the the usual post-race mulled-wine, mince pies & a visit from a local craft brewer to assist your rehydration [water will also be available]. Not forgetting of course the finisher medal and an iTAB engraved with your name and finish time!

“Definitely a race everyone should do. 2 hour cut off is achievable by runners and joggers alike. Most fun I’ve had on a trail run.”

“Absolutely loved it. Proper mudfest. Great logistics. Thanks very much for organising it!”

“This is a great event and an absolute must do between Christmas and New Year to burn off some Christmas calories. A supererb course, great fun and always muddy! Sign up ealry as it always sells out.”
