Offa’s Orror - Message from Hallowed Race Organiser!

This year proved a bit of a rollercoaster with a new course and change of Race HQ.

Many people spent many hours choosing the course, identifying marshalling points, identifying marshals, course setting, water stations and liaising with the locals to bring us from Tintern to Brockweir.

The backroom boys and girls sorted entries, promotion, website, marketing, sponsorship, first aid and catering.

On the day so many Harriers turned up to do all the jobs that a commercial race couldn’t possibly compete with, producing a challenging and fun running experience delivered by runners for runners at a cost that didn’t break the bank.

Runners voted with their feet by turning up in numbers just shy of our entries record last year. Plaudits and praise were in abundance at the Finish, in the Hall and subsequently by email and Runners World.

It was hard old graft but we are now well on the map in our new location and another event successfully under the belt further securing our reputation as a decent lot and providing some financial support for Club aspirations this Year.

So, without naming the names, I would like to offer my warmest thanks to all those who gave up their time on this and previous occasions as without your continued support this event could not have taken place.
