Click the image to download the fileWhat are the scores on the doors?!....

Almost at the finish line now, only two races remain for competitors to improve on their totals. The Eastnor Magnificent 7 and Shobdon offer an excellent opportunity to really gather some extra points, so get you entries in now.

As it stands the top of the mens leaderboard remains identical to the last race as none of the leaders ran in the Muddy Woody. However, Kathryn King's superb display earning her 25 points and second place in the series.

Both competitions will certainly go down to the wire.


Flapjacks of Fury

Bake it, and they will come!

As the picture attests Sarah Bowring has been busy in her Flapjack Factory. At £1 per bag it represents amazing value, and the sumptous taste will be a welcome reward after the hard slog of the Muddy Woody.

All proceeds will go to The Haven, so not only will you be enjoying the delicious chewyness of these treats you'll also be supporting our charity of the year.

Happy hunting!! 

Final call for Muddy Woody marshals

With Sunday fast approaching we are putting out a final call for volunteers to marshal at the Muddy Woody... The more marshals we have on the day, the better!!!

Anyone planning on helping out will need to assemble at the start line no later than 9.30am. At this time you will be given your job for the day... and with temperatures on the rise the Met Office currently shows no rain for the weekend, and if we're lucky, some sun too!

We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.

Therefore, to celebrate our impending competiton the new Muddy Woody website page is now live. All future race information surrounding the event will now be posted here. However, details of marshalling, club arrangements, etc. will continue to be posted with the news section.

Additionally please see the message below from Dave Sherwood with regard to helpers on Saturday:

With our 2013 race taking place next Sunday, 17th February, can I remind you that we need a large army of volunteers to help with the organisation.

On Saturday we will be meeting at 12.00 AM to set up the registration area and mark the course. As usual, many hands make light work and if you can spare a couple of hours to help it will be much appreciated.
On race day we need marshals at various points on the course. If you can help in this capacity then please report for duty no later than 10.00 AM. Please allow plenty of time to park your car and come prepared with warm and waterproof clothing and suitable footwear for the conditions.

On the subject of carparking, we also need a team to help direct drivers to the designated areas. If you are running then it will be appreciated if you can collect your number early and then help in this capacity.

Further updates regading the race will be posted on the club web-site during the next week.

Muddy Woody 2013 entry now closed

We have now reached our entry limit and are unable to accept any further entries.

In deciding the number of runners we have taken into account the limited parking and narrow forest tracks. Although we would love to increase the number of runners, we feel that to do so would spoil the enjoyment for those taking part.
In setting the entry limit we have already made a provision for a number of entrants dropping out before the event. For this reason we do not have a reserve list and will not be able to offer any extra places on the day of the race.
We are sorry for anyone who may be disappointed and hope that if you missed out this year you will get the chance to run next time.
