Get your friends together, it will be wet, it will be muddy, it will be fun, it will be challenging, but most of all it will be an experience you will remember. The course is challenging but is set amongst some of the nicest scenery in the country. Remember this is not a race, you can run, jog, walk or crawl – the challenge for you, is to cross the finish line!”
