The Gut Buster 2013


29 December 2013

Sunday 29 December 2013, 10AM START FOR BOTH EVENTS


Location: Butlers Lands Farm in Mortimer, Berkshire



The Gut Buster is back again for 2013 for a 3rd year. The perfect run to close out your calendar of racing in style and what better way to rid yourselves of the excesses of Christmas and to prepare for a new year? You have a choice of distances, 10k or 10 miles over beautiful multi terrain courses, but, either way, we'll call you a Gut Buster!

Here's a review of the 2012 Race to whet the appetite.

We've extended our entry limit this year due to overwhelming demand - the first 330 entries will have onsite parking Butlers Lands Farm, and entries from mid November will be using Wokefield Park (2 miles from Race HQ). We're offering a free shuttle service to and from Wokefield on race day.

Once again we're very grateful to the wonderful Runners Retreat for sponsoring the Gut Buster. For the very best of running advice, footwear and kit, why not pay them a visit in their fantastic shop in Marlow, Bucks.

Sports massage & treatments provided by the brilliant team from ACTIVE INJURY

What else is included:-

• Medal with an iTaB (worth £5) for every finisher

• Prizes

• Mulled Wine & Mince Pies at the finish line & other refreshments

• Baggage Storage & ample toilets

We've also negotiated a great deal with our friends at the local De Vere venue Wokefield Park for you for the night of Saturday December 28th!

For just £49 per room (single or double occupancy) you'll get B&B and full use of the fabulous leisure facilities. You'd also have use of the free shuttle service.

To book, simply call De Vere Wokefield on 01189 334021 and quote the Gut Buster.

10 Miler

£ 23.00

The Gut Buster 10 Mile race will take in a challenging mixture of country roads, footpaths and woods through the glorious scenery of south Berkshire. With a short climb in the first half a mile you’ll know you’re in a race straight away, then running through or around a ford breaks things up nicely as you head up to the ancient Roman town of Calleva and halfway. From here the course rolls down and up again on road and trails all the way to the finish. Follow the link for the exact route: 10 Mile Route


£ 18.00

The Gut Buster 10k maybe be shorter in distance but it’s no less hard!! You’ll share much of your route with the 10 mile runners, including the famous ford and the run around Calleva. It’s up and down all the way on a mixture of surfaces – so this is not an easy option! Follow this link for the exact route: 10KM Route
