Urgent Event news update: Brutal Woolmer - location change
It's most unusual to post an update like this (i.e. never been done before) - but when this sort of things happen you want to let people know as soon as possible - so, it's one of those things about playing on MOD training grounds - sometimes the MOD wants to train on them !
So Brutal Woolmer is no more, long live Brutal Newlands Corner !!! (Newlands Corner is here - next to Guildford and easy from the A3)
Yes, that's right - a last minute/24hrs of change of location and the Brutal team have been working non-stop to re-plan and re-organise the race.
Go to the Brutal Website and Facebook pages for more info and to ask questions !
Everyone with an entry will have already received an email for the Brutal team to sort out what they want to do - run it, swap it, refund it (heavens no!) and hopefully they will all want to come and show some of that legendary Brutal Support !
Entries on the day
Despite the change of location - there are still entries on the day - just go here - fill-in and print off the paperwork and take it with you for a fast and easy check in tomorrow - don't forget your £20 !
And this is what some of the course might look like... the hills will be Brutal !
All these shots were taken around Newlands Corner in the past years - so you get a feel for what you need to prepare for....
|race starts up at newlands corner|
|anyone can do running on hills|
|This is approximately how good at running we all think we look like...|
|see those undulating Newlands corner hills behind them...|
|hills. hills. hills...|
|running downhill is easy|
|You can even taste the hills if you want to ?|
|This is your Brutal Race Director checking the course a few years ago... byeee|
And here's a shout out to all those lovely people who ran the Ealing Half Marathon a few weeks ago -
don't forget to get your race photos as proof of what you achieved (before that fades into the oblivion of daily life) - and then get your entry in for next year !!!
So see you all at Newlands Corner tomorrow, about 9:30 for a 10am start - but get there earlier if you are entering on the day !!!
until next time, and apologies for the one-off !
See you there
