That’s not a statement, it’s a race. Yes, sibling of the infamous Hell Runner the Delamere Forest race this Sunday will see mud-lovers getting dirty over 10-12 miles of trail, bog and all sorts of gubbins…

The PUMA HellRunner™ is over multi-terrain and varying underfoot conditions. There will be everything from running tracks and trails to water-filled areas and plenty of steep hills. Expect to get very wet! It will be nature at its toughest. The course will be marked but do not expect to see mile or kilometre markers….that’s for those softy road running types. All you need to know is that the course will be probably more than 10 and less than 12 miles in length. Hey! With what we have in store, who’s counting?

    I am planning on doing the hellrunner next year in the mean time I am training for the Spartan Race.

    Did the Hell up North event today and having done it 4 years ago was very disappointed in its length. It was no way more than 9 miles as I posted a time far too good to be any more than that and so I don’t feel that I can compare it to the previous event and I also feel like it was all too easy compared to before. I think they have diluted it down and would not enter again.
