What’s this all about?

Each Brutal event is exactly 10km, and each will require mental toughness and and raw grit.

The most savage of our events, The Brutal is being organised in partnership with our resident ex-army PT instructor and 10-time winner of the Runners Need G3 series, Dave Rollins, Colin Dickson and Allan Farrington. These events are unquestionably the ultimate run challenge with up to 10 events a year. There will also be a variety of new formats including a BrutalEnduro (12hr night run event for solo or team entry.)

What to wear

Not your best shoes, but good tough shoes with good grip. Keep warm with maybe a buff head scarf, long sleeve top and shorts. It’s best to avoid being water logged, so dress lightly! and bring a change of clothes.


Registration on the day will open at 08:00. Collect everything on the day including your timing chip, shirt bib number and any t-shirts you may have purchased online. Nothing will be posted in advance.

The Courses

Be warned: these events are going to be gruesome. They have steep hills, energy-sapping climbs and mud by the truckload. If pounding through the forests dripping with sweat and nursing aching limbs is your game, then these events are perfect for you.
