Insane Terrain- 3rd Stage Get Entering Now!

Stage 2 of the 2013 Insane Terrain Running Series, supported by Merrell, took place at the idyllic yet extremely challenging surroundings of Grange Farm in Wansford, just north of Peterborough.  The venue is used for horse cross country and off road driving experiences making it an ideal venue – and a very tough one!

Approx 150 people braved the cold conditions and there were some stunning times submitted, both in the 5k and 10k runs.  With competitors having to conquer numerous obstacles from hay bale sky scrapers to spiders webs and cargo net crawls , 11 water challenges and muddy water tunnel crawls it was pure cruelty on the part of the organisers to add in the punishing hill climbs, particularly the brutal ascent at the end of the course.

BUT THEY DID!!

In fairness, they did add in some lighthearted elements to ensure everyone had fun and the human slide at the very end of the course was a welcome relief to those exhausted runners brave enough to enter.

As with their first event in Woodbridge, the organisers set up the course to be firm but fair and make it an event that appeals to the elite athlete, the fun runner and the fundraiser; indeed there were a number of groups racing for charity and all of them commented on how much fun it was and that they’d managed to get lots of additional sponsorship when people realized what they were going to have to endure.

The 3rd stage of the series takes place back in Woodbridge on SUNDAY 9TH JUNE and the organisers have promised it will be bigger, better and tougher than ever!
