8 RRRs took part in the New Forest (formerly Minstead) Stinger organised by local club, Totton Runners. The Stinger offers a variety, views and mixed terrain.
Runners have a choice of distances, 5 or 10 miles which consist of a mix of trails, gravel tracks and paths in a looped course through undulating open forest. Runners are afforded in places, long views of open heath land with dense forest in the background. This is a tough route, as the name suggests, challenging runners with several steep ‘stinger’ inclines.
The weather was perfect on the day and with firm and dry ground underfoot, conditions were good.
