Brooks Hell Runner


You know what they say, you gotta be in it to win it…. and I’ve only bloomin’ gone and won it again.

On Sunday I tweeted a picture of my bloody, muddy and scabby knee to @brooksrunningUK, you remember the one right, oh well just in case you forgot:

“I leave everything, even my skin, on the trail”

Don’t worry, I didn’t just randomly tweet this picture – they put out a call for entries to receive reasons for why people should be selected to join a team of 4 runners at Hell up North, the first of this years Hell Runner series.

Not only do I get a spot on the team (and the fun of working out how to get there), but I also get kitted out with:

Cascadia 7 trail shoes (aren’t they lovely)
Tech Tee

Oh, and a headcam to film the race with :-)

Meet the rest of the team (yes there are more than 4 names, apparently they couldn’t decide between some of us, so are taking 6 people)

@TeamB_O_B – Martin Hookway
@sonnywinstonMDS – Sonny Winston
@RunandRelax – Sadie McKeand
@clarkie_6 – Beth Clark
@Lizzmahon – Liz Mahon

So in just a week and a half I’ll be tackling such wonders as the Hills of Hell, and the Bog of DOOM.

I don’t want to wear shiny new gear in that!!! :-)
