Twentyish muddy, hilly, boggy, beachy miles of the multiest-terrain running experience you will find this side of the end of time. So what’s it all about? Well, it’s by no means the toughest race around; indeed, some say that it’s getting too easy but they’re missing the point. It has changed over the years and nearly died on a few occasions, but hundreds keep coming back for more, so the Axe Valley Runners must still be getting it right. Whatever it isn’t, it is an experience.
The 2015 Grizzly Run was the 27th Grizzly and was held on Sunday 1st March.
The Grizzly run is organised by the Axe Valley Runners (website www.axevalleyrunners.org.uk) who organised the first 8 mile long race in 1988 starting at Beer Head.
The Grizzly is different from the London Marathon and the Great North Run because it really does go ‘cross country’ for a distance of 19 to 20 miles, or round about 31 kilometres.
