Have signed up.. looks like a good way to explore what the area has to offer beyond our usual trips for the Verderers Trail etc.

Did the 25-miler last year - was my first ever event. Had a great time! This year I will be signing on for the full 42 miles :-)

Signed up, full boar. Was a good crack last year, very acceptable cupcakes.

Just signed up for the Wye Boar. Doing the HoNC in April so felt I needed something for May. Never done it before but it looks fun! Now what to do in June......

Did the Small Boar today and thoroughly enjoyed it. That hill at the end was a bit of a bugger though!

A well organised and well run event. Definitely in the calendar for next year.

Had a great day today - some of those climbs were a grind but the singletrack through the forest was brilliant - even if my legs were mostly jelly by then! Managed the Full Boar in about 4h15m and am proper pooped now!
