  • A muddy hilly half



    Sunday morning and I was out in the hampshire countryside completing a very hilly, very muddy half marathon. My Garmin tells me the elevation was 1164ft, certainly the views were brilliant. This is the first trail race I have done and I loved the atmosphere, the marathon started a hour before us, but by the time I was finishing I had been joined by the occasional marathon runner. The whole event had a lovely relaxed and positive atmosphere, the marshals were very friendly and the aid stations were great, with sweets, fruit cheese and squash. There was even chilli and rice once you had finished.

    I just ran where I could and walked if it was too steep or slippery and enjoyed a few hours out in the countryside. I will defiantly be back for more next year.
