Overview

Now in its 9th year, the Gut Buster is returning for another epic mudfest. Simply a must-do. The Roman Walls of Calleva, a ford crossing, the brook crossing, the ascent of boggy gully, quiet country lanes and the famous finish across a cabbage patch field are all there. Mulled wine & Mince Pies at the finish, and then a fab medal and complimentary iTaB engraved with your name and finish time - what's not to like?

Definitely a race everyone should do.2 hour cut off is achievable by runners and joggers alike. Most fun I've had on a trail run. It's  a shame the park and ride doesn't have toilets like oxford.
