The 26th running of the Grizzly and Cub runs start together on Seaton Esplanade at 10.30 am this coming Sunday (March 10).
This year the event’s sub title read: “Grime and Punishment” – for obvious reasons - and they remain one of the toughest Multi-Terrain challenges you are likely to come across.
The 20’ish mile Grizzly will finish at the same location from approx 1pm.
The shorter 9-mile Cub Run which is run over part of the main course will finish from approx. 11.30 am.
There are 1,820 entrants in the Grizzly with Sandhurst Joggers bringing 27 runners and host club AVR have 60 entries.
There are 16 grizzly runners from the Netherlands, three from Denmark and Switzerland and a few more overseas entrants.
There are 307 runners in the Cub Run, plus the “Grizfest” and junior runs on Grizzly Saturday. The Headquarters this year will be at Seaton Town Hall.
