A brutal Midsummer eve

Last updated: 20-Aug-18

By Becky Russell

This year’s midsummers night saw the second edition of the Brutal Enduro. Runners and Canicross athletes competed as teams, pairs and individuals to cover a 10km cross country course for 12 hours overnight and complete as many laps as possible.

The event village had a real family feel and with all the facilities any overnight runner could require: lots of tea and coffee, massages, camping area, chill out area and medics. AE Photos were out on the course taking action shots of all the runners.

A big thanks you to Alton Sports and Silva, the event sponsors.
