Can you handle Hell in the Chilts?

The UK’s toughest 10-miler


On 19 September the toughest 10-mile race in the UK returns: it’s Hell in the Chilts.

One of the three HellRunner races – with the others based geographically south and north – Hell in the Chilts is notoriously the toughest.

Like all HellRunner events, for 10 miles you will be battling against the Earth’s natural elements, with two of mother’s obstacles in particular.

Firstly: the Hills of Hell. Treacherous and undulating, the Hills of Hell will turn the strongest of legs in to jelly, with some of the climbs nigh on vertical. And just when you think you’ve done three, there’s always another one, or two!

Secondly: the Bog of Doom. If you think you’ve tasted cold, then you have no idea. The Bog of Doom provides literally freezing, neck deep cold and muddy water, bringing even the most muscular of men to tears.

With all of this in hand, you still need to run / walk / crawl for 10 miles!

If you’re not completely sold, check out our very own digital writer Tom Bristow’s experience.
