Gettin’ Ready for GBR2013
The race is on, the brook is being cleared, the wine is being mulled and the medals are being polished. The date for your diary is the 27th of December at 12:00.
The now famous Great Brook Run is a gruelling cross-country winter race. Our
foolish heroic competitors run / walk / crawl across the vast wild and muddy fields of the Cotswolds to get to the fabled Silt Traps that mark the halfway point, before doubling back like muddy, flightless homing pigeons back to The Tite Inn.
But what they don’t know, unless they do, is that the return journey is in water. Following the Coldron Brook, our bedraggled runners need to navigate The Feared Places….The Dunk, Drayman’s Grave, Tite Tunnel, The Ghost’s Cartwheel – all legendary places only the fearless or foolish would tackle.
You may have run Iron-Man competitions, marathons, Triathlons, egg and spoon races before, but nothing, nothing, can prepare you for the gruelling, strength sapping, torturous, death defying Great Brook Run. Well, a cup of tea might. But nothing, I mean nothing else will.
