GRIM is an eight mile off-road challenge run on the Army's vehicle testing track in Aldershot. Run on a mixed terrain, trails, rocky paths, sand, mud, hills and through some rather large puddles. Expect to get wet!

Thanks for visiting my page. I am a fundraiser for the armed forces charity SSAFA. I run in events to raise money in memory of Stuart Wright who gave his life in Iraq.
The help given by SSAFA to Stuart's family was immeasurable and as a thank you for this I am now committed to raising as much money as possible for our local branch of this great charity.
In early 2010 I raised over a £1000.00 running in the Silverstone half marathon.
On jan 16th I entered the Grim Original and compelted the very challenging course.
From the Grim website:
“This land is used to test Army vehicles so expect it to be interesting! You will reach a long hill shortly after the start before descending again eventually reaching a water filled ravine. You will run on over puddle-strewn paths before having to crawl under camouflage netting. You'll eventually reach some man-made mounds before arriving at and running through some rather large puddles. Expect to get very wet! You'll run on to the fast vehicle driving circuit where it is rocky underfoot. This brings you to some more large areas of water and the finish area.”
Any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your generosity. Every penny goes towards aiding the brave men and women who serve their country and the families who are affected by their service.
