I arrived home this afternoon to find a surprise on the door step, a box of Red Bull..! I’m entered in the inaugural Red Bull Steeplechase, on the 7th October down in the Peak District. I’m guessing this is to aid my training. I’ve not used Red Bull when running before, so it will be an interesting experiment, although I have sure used it enough working!
The Red Bull Steeplechase is a unique knockout fell running event, which will see 250 competitors start in Castleton and run from church steeple, to church steeple, passing through Bamford, Hope, Edale and back to Castleton. At each stage, competitors will be eliminated, only 40 will get to finish in Castleton village square. It sounds like the perfect race, man against mountain, against man, against time!
