Discount available on Brutal 10! We have been advised that one of the Brutal 10 trail series runs has had to move its location to Temple Valley, on the South Downs near Winchester. As this is outside its usual catchment area, Hampshire clubs have been offered a 15% discount on the entry fee. If you’re interested in entering, please use HRRL when prompted for a discount code. The event is on 25 February (Nicola) http://brutalrun.co.uk/race/temple-valley/
