The exposed conditions mean that the weather plays an important role on the day. This year as well as having a chill in the air it was also particularly windy, adding to the challenge.
Our very own Director, Steve Kenyon, took part along with some of his friends and family. Steve finished the race in an impressive 2 hours 36 minutes, coming 14th place out of 1211 runners. We’d like to say a huge well done to Steve and thank him for his time and effort in raising money for our charity year. Congratulations!
Of the race, Steve said:
This was my 9th year participating in the Grizzly Run so I knew what to expect. That doesn’t seem to make it any easier but it’s a great experience! It’s a difficult race and the varying terrain adds to the challenge. I have been running around 70 miles a week in preparation but I hope to scale that back a bit now it’s complete.
In terms of other challenges this year, I am hoping to get a place in the London Marathon or may possibly look at attempting a world record running challenge. Whatever happens, there is certainly more exciting things to look forward to as the push to raise money for our charity year continues.”
