No doubt most of you will have heard by now, but for those that haven’t the Kielder 100 has been cancelled. The official announcement sounded pretty final too, it’s doesn’t seem to me as though they are planning on resurrecting it any time soon.
It’s a real shame, that event had a special atmosphere (composed mainly of rain and midges it appeared) and I’ll be sorry not to be doing it again this year. It was properly tough, the now infamous 2011 race gave me the only DNF I’ve ever had and the 2012 race wasn’t hugely successful either and yet it was still weirdly enjoyable, I think it makes a nice change to just get out into the wilderness away from the majority of sanitised race courses. It was a lot more fun than it sounds.
