Earlier this year I stumbled upon this video from last years Grim Original in Aldershot.
It’s an 8 mile off road race around the tank testing ground and is renowned for being a bit of a tough challenge. I saw the video and it looked quite fun, in fact it looks like a hell of a lot of fun, so I entered it as that was obviously the sane and rational thing to do!
Well I got my race pack through this morning with my bib and my chip, yeah baby!
Fortunately it does fit in with my marathon training plan as I am scheduled to do an 8 mile run that day anyway, though the prospect of doing my 20 mile LSR the very next day is definitely not as appealing as it was!!
Wish me luck!
