Guy Woodcock, HERO-ERA Competition Director explained; “We reached a zenith in terms of the ultimate challenge in 2023, precipitated by the weather – in fact between the competitors and us as organisers, we have never known anything like it, it really was the ultimate LeJog, according to the original recipe laid down by John Brown all those years ago.
“But now we want to keep it absolutely true to its values, and maintain its mantle as the toughest Reliability Trial in Europe.
“In order to preserve that heritage and keep the LeJog Spirit alive longer, we need to review the ethos of LeJog, so a year’s break will allow us to keep the event fresh, even change some aspects of the format to help maintain the unique endurance challenge it has always been.
“We are going to take stock, then devise and revitalise the next LeJog for 2025 which will be back with a vengeance, with a hard edge and in the spirit of the original. Competitors can expect new twists, not only to challenge existing Joggers from around the world, but also to encourage new entrants to take on the unique endurance challenge.”
