Haldon Night Race 10km
An impromptu very last-minute booking saw Laura Broughton enter Wild Night Running’s, Haldon Night Race 10km and one she would later wonder if it was a good decision. Not only did it turn out to be the hardest 10km she had done it was one catastrophe after another. Mile 2 saw a twisted ankle which resulted in a plod all the way to the finish. The battery ran out on her headlight, so she used her phone torch which was difficult to see with over the rough terrain but better than nothing and at least it lasted until the last few strides to the finish. Ripped leggings and some wonderful chaffing made it a race to remember.
They don’t call it Wild Night Running for nothing but as a true Mighty Green she never gave up.
