OK, well at the request of the old gang, I'm starting the new thread....to break the Curse Of The Thread Starter. (As Amadeus pointed out, the 06 thread was started by a man who had a great run in 05, but didn't run 06 due to injury. The 07 thread was started by a man who ran 05 and 06, but couldn't run 07 due to injury... So, as I've done 06 and 07, but won't be doing 08, it seemed safest for me to take the plunge!)
Enough waffle: It's a fab race for both first timers and the more experienced, nice size, lovely support, always a friendly forum full of cake-eaters, and most importantly, the forumite pub is a couple of hundred yards from the finish line! (OK so the loos are downstairs, but that just adds to the amusement).
So..... have fun kids, sorry I won't be there!
