I took myself up to the Belvoir on Saturday for the 20th Belvoir Challenge - 26 miles of mixed terain. It turned out to be a bit of a mudfest with rutted tracks and slippery mud making forward progress quite tricky at times. Navigation was by following red and white tape which worked well except for one point where I added an extra mile and a bit to the distance. We did get a good view of the castle and some great countryside to run through. A particularly boggy patch a mile from the end had one chap held fast so I plowed in and helped haul him out and then went digging for his shoe. Good practice for the Grizzly perhaps?
