    Hi Paula

    Well done on completing your race Sunday, in what I expect were tough conditions, I was racing slightly further south on Sunday and it was desperate!

    Did you put a similar post on Facebook? Thought I recalled seeing something about the Hedgehope race...

    This place may be a bit quieter than the Facebook page but I'm confident you'll get better info and advice here. The different forums are a goldmine of info and tips.

    That link above has details of the race categories, and they'll probably be in your handbook/calendar....


    A/B/C. A = steep and for 90% of people the climbs will not be runnable
    B = generally less steep. May be able to run all the climbs, but lots will still need to walk the ups
    C.= I've never done a 'C' but I'd expect you can probably run it all.

    S/M/L. S= up to 10km
    M = 10-20km
    L = 20+ km

    Hi Paula,

    Well done for getting stuck in to the HHH. I was considering it, but a disastrous training run on hedgehope in the mud and wind just after christmas made me think twice.

    Good luck in your upcoming races!
