Here's a little video:
This was a cross country race with a difference, held at the South of England Centre in Ardingly it made good use of assorted horse jumps and fences to challenge the individual and team runners. Staying dry was not an option !
The first obstacle of the day was aptly named "The Sloosh" and made sure everyone got at least their feet wet.
although with a bit of help from other teams some took and early bath...
the next opportunity to get wet came after a fair drop down at "The dunker"
there were more testing fences, drops, steep ground and rope nets before the athletes reached "The Backwash" towards the end of the 5k lap.
then there was just "The Wood Chipper" fence to negotiate before the run to the line for the 5k or doing it all again for those competing in the 10k.
Well done to all at Urbanrace for coming up with a great new challenging event and congratulations to everyone who took part.
