Well done to everyone who scaled The Hurt in 2013. An epic performance by all.
The results are just being formatted and should be out tonight. Sorry for the short delay.
The Hurt series is claiming to be the most challenging 12k and 24k trail run in the South East. It will also take place in one of the most beautiful corners of England. If you like your trail runs to be challenging, through alp-like forest, with no nonsense, no gimmicks, hard climbing and technical descending, this one is for you.

What to wear
Trail running shoes if you've got them. 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 course in The Hurt series has the same start and finish but the courses will be different. Be warned, each course will include punishing climbs that some of you have met and learned to love! Rest assured if you do all 3 you will meet the South faces of the hills of The Hurtwood. Total ascents will be in the realm of the 850 - 1000 feet.
Look out for black arrows on a luminous yellow back ground. It is your responsibility to follow these arrows. 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. You will not. Turn around and retrace your steps.
