We have an exciting new event to tell you about which takes place on Sunday 11th October 2009 on the Eastnor Castle Estate. Mudrunner is an off road run over a variety of terrain and conditions from rolling grassland (well a little bit anyway) to mud, wet mud and sticky mud. The course includes hills, waterfilled pits, muddy banks and did we mention mud. You will get very wet! 6ish arduous country miles around the Eastnor Estate using the same tracks that Land Rovers have been tested and developed on.
The course will be marked and we will let you know the halfway point, other than that it's 6ish miles in length and brilliant fun. In addition to the prizes for the first five individual finishers in a variety of categories there are also prizes for the fastest teams of three.
The first two teams to enter are from the Eastnor Castle Estate with the talented all male team "Rocket Ron's Allstars" (Simon Foster, David Littlewood and Nick Robinson) taking on the all female team "Dickie's Delight" (Sarah Littlewood, Sarah Bullock and Caroline Brazington).
As Simon Foster (Castle Manager) explains "this event provides a great opportunity for us to compete amongst the office and also develop some (hopefully) friendly rivalry and teambuilding" SB
