What to wear
The Inov-8 Trail Roc shoe, available from Fitstuff.
The ground is rocky in parts so spikes may not be suitable.
Come prepared for steep ascents and descents, running on sandy and stony trails and single tracks.
Drop in on the guys at Fitstuff for all your off-road trail running needs.
Each distance in The Hurt has the same start and finish. Be warned, each course will include punishing climbs that some of you have met before and learned to love! Those of you doing the 10.5k and 21k, will meet the South face of the hills of The Hurtwood! Don't be fooled by the tame course profile. The 3 'V's are pleasantly understated...
As these are such tough courses we request that anyone under 16 years of age runs with a parent or guardian.
Please look out for black arrows on a luminous yellow back ground. If you don't see an arrow after 150 - 200m of the last, you have gone wrong. Don't continue on hoping you will see an arrow. Please turn around and retrace your steps.
Chip timing - please collect chip on the day from the registration.
First Aid will be at the start / finish and marshals will be patrolling the course looking out for strugglers and stragglers.
Loos will be at the startline.
