All of you. For even attempting one lap of that course, let alone two or even the Four laps on the Sunday. It's fair to say a lot of people attempting the Saturday course just were not prepared for the cold water with only 70 people on the day completing two laps. Sunday was a different story as the majority had a good idea of what they were going to face - the amount of Neoprene on show was testament to this.

Direct gallery links for you - please follow the instructions on the event page if you are having difficulty searching for your photos:

Connor Hancock at work
The overall winner on the Sunday - covering 4 laps (7km each) in just over 4hrs - #263 Connor Hancock and just so you get an idea of how good he was - he was over one hour ahead of the second place competitor to finish 4 laps...
Wayne checking the course on Saturday
Very well done to the organisers and the team of volunteers and medical staff that make big (and dangerous) events like this possible - Wayne and his team did a great job.

Here's a few more shots from the weekend for you to enjoy -

Summoning the dove from above

checking the depth

having a swinging time

taking the course on full force

monkeying about

almost there

stopping for a chat

helping hand

Mudstacle Pete making his home videos

You didn't really want to get caught at the back of the course

The mudstacle guard of honour

All ready for another lap 

he didn't trip her and run off. Oh no.

Well  I don't think it does.

Tombstoning your way into the Nuts history books

Shouldn't have had those energy gels beforehand mixed with mentos

Star performer

All tastes good

Taking in the view

Thorough checking under the rafts

Squirrel Says yes

The mass starts on Saturday were - busy

That first taste of obstacles

The Hen night party from hell

The Flash, very efficient at kitchen floor cleaning

10 points for keeping up the camera enthusiasm up over both days and 6 laps !

Marianne just realises her friend is taking her photo

Sy celebrates his last Nuts. it was cold

All thumbs up and ok - honest

The Bear Grylls pose

Be who you want to be

Yes, this is how cold it was

High Fives for dad

Not another log !

Mucky business

Try not to slip

Drop goal attempt missed

remember to take the backing paper off the temp tattoo

There's something down there and it's this big

So what, it's only snow

See you Saturday at the Brutal Bordon with mud, slightly thicker, and a bit warmer, the Surrey Schools Primary School XC, and on Sunday at The Surrey Half Marathon, The Colchester Half Marathon, or indeed the Events to Live Spitfire 10 and Tempest 20.

Finally, one of the participants at the National Cross Country championships last weekend shared her blog with us - it's rather good and you might enjoy reading it here: https://runbetterwildbare.wordpress.com/2016/03/09/the-2016-english-national-cross-country-championships-donnington-park-leicestershire/

The weather forecast is looking perfect by the way - so enjoy it !

Until next time
Anthony
