Hellrunner - Trail Running 101

This Saturday I did my first ever competitive off-road running race, a little event called HellRunner down at Longmoor Army Camp.

After a few days of frenzied (well, moderate) activity the decorating part of it is done, much to my relief.

They go beyond mere ignorance, and off into the realms of vanity in stupidity. The internet was invented for such people.
