  • I'm in too!  Have run it for the last 3 years but did baggage on the first year when it was torrential rain and we struggled to keep the runners' bags dry in the marquees as even the carpet was under 2 inches of waterimage
  • I'm giving this a go. Did the 1st one and was going to run yesterday until some
    stupid driver hit my car and ruined my day. But definitely next year.
  • OMG runnerman hope you're ok.

  • Yes I'm fine thank you. A little shock. However the other driver will be paying for lost fees plus
    damages to my car. Just a shame I missed out yesterday. But never mind. Next year, I'm going
    by train.
  • can you enter already ?
  • I'm in again image
  • If you did it this year Bob you should receive a Priority Entry Invitation email if not the general entry opens on 13th June

  • Is there a maybe list?

    I did it in 2010 & thought it was great but have since moved & it's a bit more long-winded to get into London now.
  • IN!

    Enjoyed yesterday very much.
  • Yep just entered!

    Will be a few weeks after the VLM so it will either feel like a sprint or the longest 10k ever!  I notice they've moved it to the Sunday for next year.

  • I wonder why that is Screamapillar?  Never mind will be there definitely - haven't bothered to enter the VLM ballot as I have a place in Brighton so will have an extra week to prepare lol.  Think this is a fantastic race.image
  • I didn't do this years event but ran in '09 and '10.

    Have made a diary entry for 13th June to get my entry sorted this year!

  • OK I am actually in now, I was just expressing my enthusiasm before B-)
  • Top quality event. Did I mention that I overtook Iwan Thomas on the way round...?
  • Anyone with two legs can overtake Iwan Thomas. image

    Reason next year is on a Sunday is there no bank holiday that weekend.
    The spring bank holiday is moved to June 4th with another bank holiday on the 5th so
    we can all celebrate the Queen's jubilee. I think London unavailable for some sort of
    celebration or something.

    Aha -  thanks for that Runnerman image

  • Brill - more days off!!image
  • Aw, it would be good to run it on the Jubilee Bank Holiday. The Queen could wave us in from the balcony of Bucks Palace.

    Remember it's a leap year next year so it balances itself out. Remind your employer of that when they're moaning about another extra day off.

    I can't believe they're moving the spring bank holiday, I've always known it to be the last Monday in May.

  • Oh yeah - forgot that k8.

    I think we should have both the last Monday in May and first Monday in June, and the Tuesday as bank holidays.

    We still get less B/H than most of europe anyway...

  • TBH, I'd want a bank holiday to celebrate this country becoming a republic, but that's another issue...
  • That's great news - could've been tricky 28th being my wedding anniversaryimage

  • I'm in image really hope I will be able to get my time to sub 50 mins by then !
  • I actually have 7 months paid leave next year and because it covers the entire bank holiday period I get them all back!

    image except there is no smile big enough quite frankly imageimageimage
