MudMan set to crown the winners of the Human Race Off-Road Series
22nd February 2016
MudMan, the final event in the Human Race Off-Road Series, will be held at Camberley in Surrey on Saturday 5 March. This trail run and duathlon is known for its tough, hilly course which leaves smiles as well as mud on the face of participants. There are a limited number of places remaining in this popular event, which are on general sale until Monday 29 February.
Runners can choose from either 10 or 15km trail routes which follow a carefully designed route around a Ministry of Defence base. As well as mud and hills they will have to contend with a 50 foot water section, so there’s no point trying to stay clean. Dogs will once again be welcome to join trail runners with a special ‘canicross’ wave for those who love to jog alongside their four legged friends.
Those who are tough enough to ride and run have the opportunity to take on the duathlon, which consists of two challenging 7.5km runs either side of a leg-busting 15km bike section.
As MudMan is the finale of the series, winners across three events will be crowned on the day, with competition close in a number of disciplines. In the male duathlon Pete Wilby and Ross Smith are tied at the top, with last year’s champion Callum Hughes five points behind and still in with a shout of retaining his title. Jackie Field has been unstoppable in the female duathlon so far, but Rachel Clay and Ruth Purbrook have one final chance to topple her having kept up the pace just behind.
Charlie Elliott (Ful-On Tri) triumphed in the male trail run at both WildMan and IceMan, the opening events in the series, so a second place finish at MudMan will be enough to guarantee him the title. Similarly Alice Hector (Evo Tri) has twice taken 1st place in the female trail run, so a strong final performance will guarantee her the overall prize too.
