Modern Day Hobbit Adventure – Pt 1

#R20160411_150059unFrodoRun – UK Section (approx 260 miles)

Not a lot of people know this, but being in possession of the ring of power in today’s day and age is a real pain; everything’s a bit different now.

Firstly, there’s more traffic and things out there now to get in the way.  Secondly, finding Mordor is a bit more challenging now everything is a bit more built up.

Eventually, after some careful, considered minutes of searching for stuff in google maps, I found Mordor. It turns out it’s just a small area on the outskirts of Essen in Germany. No idea what it was yet, but it was indisputably labelled ‘Mordor’. So off I went with an aim to run as much of this route as possible.
