Are you ready for the run of your life? Brooks HellRunner™ is a race like no other; promising punishment of the sole and redemption of the mind.
What is it?
It is 10-12 miles of ultra-challenging but crazy-fun, off-road running. The route goes through all-natural terrain; over the Hills of Hell and the Bog of Doom, where the devil awaits. Plus there are no distance markers, so you’ll never know exactly what’s around the next corner.
How did it start?
The event began in 2004; started by ex-competitive runner, Paul Magner of Trail Plus, a company that puts on unique challenge events for individuals and groups.
This year is set to be the biggest yet with over 4000 victims… sorry, competitors in Hell Down South alone.
Can I get involved?
Hell Down South takes places in Longmoor Camp, Hampshire on Saturday, 14 January. There are three types of application; solo, team (4-9) and team (10+); the more people on your team, the less you pay. Also, if you sign up before September 1st; you get a special ‘Heaven’ rate.
There are two race times; 10am and 10.30am. Each finishing competitor will receive a goody bag including a souvenir Brooks Hell Runner T-shirt and a survivor’s medal. There are also prizes available for the fastest 3 men and 3 women
There’s also a Little Devil’s Fun Run at 9.30am, which is open to all ages; it is approximately 1.5miles in length
What should I wear?
The general advice is to wear old sports clothes that you don’t mind getting a little (or a lot) muddy. Also, bring a full change of warm, dry clothing because you won’t want to wear you race gear home.
