The Grizzly 2016 - Grin and Bear It

Grizzly Snoods

Unfortunately, due to incredibly popular demand, we have now sold out of the second batch of the Grizzly snoods, which we ordered after the first lot sold out before the race. I'm afraid that's it for this year and we won't be ordering any more. Sorry for anyone who missed out.

Results for 2016

The Grizzly and Cub results are available on the SplitSecondTiming website at Results or from a mobile Results from Mobile. All results, including Junior & fun run, are in standard AVR format via our race page. Let dave.thomas@axevalleyrunners.org.uk know if you think the results are in error or if you can resolve any of the discrepancies in the Junior Grizzly or Fun Run.

2016 Race Feedback

We would like to thank everyone for all the nice comments they have sent us about the race this year.  A selection of these (with some minor editing) can be viewed at Feedback .

What it's all about

Twentyish muddy, hilly, boggy, beachy miles of the multiest-terrain running experience you will find this side of the end of time. It's by no means the toughest race around (honestly!), has changed over the years and nearly died on a few occasions, but hundreds of you keep coming back for more so we must still be getting it right. Whatever it isn't, it is an experience.

I have run in a few races but have never been in a race that manages to create physical challenge whilst taking a sideways glance at running, allowing all involved to emerge with a crooked grin on their face! - A Grizzly runner.

All it takes is all you've got.
