Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

Well we're packed and ready for you all tomorrow. 95 people have signed up for the 9bar ULTRArace 100 and it's the third time we have held this extra-ordinary race around 100 miles of the rather vicious Cotswold Hills. I say vicious as they seem to bite when you expect it least, I know that... The hill out of Chipping Campden is one that springs to mind... it's a right nasty.

We are promised some good weather, a hot-air balloon, a team pushing wheelchair athlete Judy Woolfenden MBE and a team of people from Omega Resource Group helping blind runner Simon Wheatcroft around the course... plus some of the best ULTRA-runners from around the UK. 9bar UK ULTRArace Championship Leaders Steve Smith and Trinity Booth are both there hoping to widen their leads at the top of the Men's and Women's leaderboards.

What a race menu!

It's going to be a right tester... and you'll be able to watch it all unfold here on the blog... as it happens.

More from Stratford-upon-Avon Racecourse tomorrow morning...
