Christmas Training

With Christmas approaching you might start to find it hard to fit your training in at the moment, and plan to start again in the new year, that’s ok but can be tough going after the overindulgence of the holidays, so try and do a little bit leading up to Christmas, short runs, maybe some quick high intensity workouts or short gym workouts., Also setting a goal for the New Year is always good for motivation maybe booking a race now, to give you that focus to steer you away from to much Xmas pudding.
If all that fails then dates for bootcamps and training days for 2017 will be out soon.

THE BIG PUSH SUMMER – UPDATE

The Journal of choice for Mud Troopers

NEXT RACE SUNDAY 18th SEPTEMBER

 BEAT MONDAY’S PRICE RISE – SIGN UP TODAY

An update on what is going on in THE TRENCHES Battlefield and what we have for you over the next few months…. 

After the fun and madness of THE SUMMER BIG PUSH things are all calm back at TRENCHES HQ, with so many runners taking on the battlefield  the day was always going to be a great one.

The first wave of 24k runners were away on time and straight in to the hills then, off to the first bit of mud all within 600m of the start. The 6k 12k troopers soon following on behind them…. As everybody walked and ran round the improved course they all found it better and more challenging with loads more obstacles to keep everybody focussed….

The new slack lines and tyre wall proved to be demanding…. For the first time runners the monkey bars were a little hard, but with the marshal encouraging them most of them got across without falling off…

Everybody enjoyed both the slides, all the junior runners (6 to15) finding the water splash at the bottom fun, wet, muddy and smelly.
