Shillington Shuffle – 13 November 2011
|Andy Hoddle||27 miles||5hr 41min|
| LDWA event, so mostly walkers but 80-ish runners did the marathon.
Course was not marked, and no map, but written instructions were available for download in advance.
Extremely good instructions.
Roughly circular route, mostly off-road, trail, footpaths, byways, some gravel tracks with a few roads. Surface very good, with the odd slippy patch, but it had been dry for a few weeks, I would imagine it being very muddy in a normal rainy autumn. A few steep hills, reducing most runners to a walk.
The scenery is great, with good views over mid-Bedfordshire. 4 checkpoints, with water, squash and cakes and sandwiches. No cups for the drinks so, in common with many LDWA events, take a mug.
Free parking, Food and drinks afterwards, not bad for £5. Very good, but tough event, would recommend.
