I can't believe my luck! Nobody else has started the thread yet for this great race!! I'd better get in quick before someone else steals my thunder!!!
A most welcome piece of mail came through my front door last week - it was the application pack for the GCR 2008. Having participated in this wonderful event for each of the past three years, it was almost like a finding a familar friend waiting for me on the door mat!!
An amazing new City Centre route is promised on the front cover...one of the strengths of this event is that the race organisers, and in particular, the race director (Mike James) constantly seek to improve the event through actively listening to the feedback of the participants year on year and attempting to act on it wherever possible.
This, for me, is one of the reasons as to why I choose to continue to support what has become my favourite event of the running calendar and why I look forward to making the return journey to the lovely City of Carlisle this Autumn. In so doing, I hope to meet up with friends old and new and also to chewing the cud over the coming months with many more forumites on this thread. For the past few years, this has been a most friendly and informative race thread and it is my sincere hope that this year will be prove to be no exception!!
So here's to another superb GCR!!
