Interesting or useful notes for runners

Trail shoes or old trainers are recommended but no Spikes. There will most definitely be mud and wading through water of varied depths involved. We do not recommend wearing your Sunday best and take no responsibility for stubborn stains post Suffering!. Fancy dress is encouraged and a warm set of cloths and bin bags for your race kit would be a good idea.
