Last year was the first time that we took part in the Spitfire Scramble in Hornchurch, Essex, and what a weekend it was. The event is a 24 hour relay and you can run solo (if you're mad enough!) or in teams between 2 and 8 people. With it being the only 24 trail event in London, we wanted to get involved so we put a team together and retailed there for the weekend.The concept is really simple - one team member runs the 5.75 miles lap and then when they get to the start/finish line, another team member takes over. Repeat for 24 hours!

Everyone that takes part can set up camp for the weekend with plenty of space and it creates a great atmosphere. We were spoiled with the weather last year with temperatures hitting 28C and one of the main highlights - a flyover from a Spitfire!
