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.


Course

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 10k and 20k, will meet the South face of the hills of The Hurtwood! 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. You will not. Please turn around and retrace your steps.

The course map will be here soon.
