Basically it's amazing and probably the wettest Brutal route ever! 

Pippingford Park is a privately owned estate in East Sussex in the middle of The Ashdown Forest. The estate is used by the army, mountain bike events, OCR events and is perfectly suited for a tough Brutal.

The start of the 5km loop is in an elevated position overlooking the estate and the Ashdown forest beyond. From the start there is a slight climb before descending through a steep sided valley with river crossing and muddy climbs. The route then leaves this valley and climbs again into a short section of old quarry. The first 3 km of the route is in beautiful mature trees with frequent small challenges like ponds and short sharp climbs, just to keep things super interesting.

Like all of our routes we leave the best till last. From 3km onwards the hills and water are relentless making this a Brutal classic. In the last 1km alone there are over 9 great water features to be crossed that are all on an uphill climb, doesn't sound possible? You better come and have a look for yourselves.
