Rough ‘n’ Tumble
Rough ‘n’ Tumble – January 10, 2016
Although the Rough ‘n’ Tumble may only be a 10miler the hills are plentiful and steep (and we do mean steep.). With a sense of low-key local event, but impeccably organised and marshalled, the Rough ‘n’ Tumble starts from Milton Lilbourne Village Hall in Wiltshire, taking runners up (and up) trails that are often slick with mud at this time of year. There’s always true exuberance at this event – possibly because of the sheer stupidity of sloshing your way through so much mud, possibly because of the legendary amount of cake that awaits runners at the finish.
More than tough enough for even the most experienced trail runner (and proper bragging rights for the novice) the Rough ‘n’ Tumble is a mere £12 affiliated and £14 unaffiliated with further details and online entry at grassrootsevents.co.uk – no entries on the day, as this event is invariably oversubscribed and for very good reason: It’s as excellent as the abundant cake.
