Photos - 2010 race
A race to blow away the Hogmanay hangover and see in the New Year.
The event has a carnival atmosphere with fancy dress and junior races, and presents a surprising array of obstacles for such a short route.
The race starts with a mass sprint from the Broughton Brewery to hurdle a stonewall, across playing fields, hurdle fence, wade river, negotiate marsh, cross road. Breathe. Then up through turnip fields before hitting the base of the steepest hill. Struggle up this and turn with juddering legs to hurtle precariously back down, and wind up for the final dash along the road to the village hall. Then catch your breath again.
