4300 pictures of Brutal mud and sweat are now live and online here:
Over 200 cold hardened Athletes and Canine companions decided that the army training grounds at Bordon were the place to be on Saturday, the coldest morning of December so far.
With the car thermometer cracking up to -1DegC (from -3.5) when we arrived and with the sun slowly glinting over the trees it was a quick shake of wet muddy hands with Dave who had just run the course to check it for safety and ensure it wasn't too easy. Apparently it wasn't and he pointed me to a few of the trickier locations for Mike and I to go and take a look at ready for the race.
Checking across different points around the course and figuring a plan of action we aimed for 6 different points with two priority locations of the 6k swamp and the 9k tunnel which you will find are probably the most fun shots to have a look at ! Hope you enjoy the gallery, another fantastic race put on by Colin, Dave and Allan with their team of volunteers and the fantastic food from Tom, I recommend the Currywurst.
The Next Brutal 10 is at Longmore, on the day before you have to go back to work after New Years day - i.e. the 2nd January.
