When I mentioned Kiplings Kaper to a colleague, he said it reminded him of the exchange "Do you like Kipling?". "I don't know, I've never Kipled." Oh dear.

SPAG time, Kipling not Kiplin Kaper not Kapper (as on events list) and it was Ruddy'ard. Well done Keith and the crew. Now if you enjoyed Staffs mud so much then come and do the 5L+P in Worcestershire on 22 April... Map/ compass/ torch/ scraper/ ... any surplus goes to MNDA. Mike

Agree with the above. My first venture out in this area. Shutlingsloe was a good climb and I could see the hail coming in when I got to the top. I missed the lightning though. I was trying to keep my feet dry in the first 10miles, but this was absolutely pointless as the rest of the route was underwater. Thought all checkpoints had ample food and drink, and the oatcakes at CP2 were a new and tasty experience. The Roaches were impressive and I enjoyed running on that rock that is grippy even when wet. Directions were spot on, didn't get lost and my map stayed in my pack. Decent and appreciated meal at finish.
Thanks for an enjoyable day :)

really enjoyable even dodging the lightning and the pea sized hail stones,on the Roaches, and the slog up Shutlingsloe was worth the views, however should have packed me snorkle for the fields. having said that the weather on the whole was great and another good staffordshire challenge in the bag
