The race gallery for the second of the most Brutal 10 races this year is now live and online here:
Another tough race in the Brutal series. With a course on army training grounds which takes over 7 hours to mark out, test and check (yep all the bogs and water hazards are checked beforehand by the Race Director personally!) you know you're going to face a tough but fair challenge.
With the first 2k straight uphill, then 2k of bogs and water, then 4k more of up and down hill around the creeks of the hill leaving a 2k downhill finish (via another marsh) you get the picture...so here's a few to help you :
As usual the Canine race set off 10 minutes early , but good to see many of them giving it a go through the water this race.
|Run dammit. err ok.|
|For some reason the Dogs didn't go as deep as the runners|
|Post swim victory|
|Muddy Brutal fun|
|Team effort all the way round|
|Excellent technique, so we opened the gate for everyone else|
|Downhill from 9k to the marsh near the finish|
|Still pulling him home|
|Always a good chat with the marshals, you never know when one might be an ex international...|
The event even has a facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/brutal10

Right, two half marathons and a Race meeting to catalogue and index tomorrow - about another 19,000 images. I might be some time since we do it all by hand. Yikes.
Until then, keep training
