  • Were race numbgers sent out for this??

    Had a look for mine and cant find it, hoping its collection on the I think it was last year???

     Would be grateful if someone could post back to I can sleep easy!


  • Found it!!!!
  • image thank goodness for that Brian image

    Twas a bit windy in places, but not all around the route - phew!! Was fine once we got started.  Oh, and the bacon & egg roll afterwards was absolutely gorgeous - perhaps cos I'd earnt it image

  • Blimey Brian - you were hoping weren't you? Tucked up in bed long before 23.48 the night before a race image

    Mind you, was a bit odd posting the number but not the chip....

  • The bus - all down to cost, every chip not returned we have to pay for. We take 600 entries & yet only 466 turned up y'day. We can't guarantee that all those not there will return them.

    Glad you enjoyed the event. Hear 4k to 6k was tough.
  • Fair point Mr Weeble - hadn't thought of that. Large amount of no shows at this time of year I guess as well, given the amount of lurgies around and the weather forecast!

    4k - 6k was quite tough! Shame really, as this was a last ditch attempt for my 10k target this year, whihc I missed by 16 secs! Alwyas the danger with a flat, exposed course I suppose. 

    I think the entrance and exit to the airfield has deteriorated quite a bit over the last few years and does slow you up a little as is a bit tricky to take at speed. Has there been any thought of how this could be improved at all? Matting or the like perhaps? Appreciate it's a difficult one though.

  • It's a good point and something we'll look at next year.

    Nightmare to just miss a PB, I'm sure you'll hit it next year
  • Thanks Mr Weeble...

    Definitely gives me a target for early in the new year!

  • Great race, very enjoyable and well organised.  Look forward to doing it next year.  The airfield didn't seem too bad - a little bit blowy but that was better than last year's ice.

    Many thanks to the kind person who found my car key and handed it in - luckily i only realised I had lost it about 5 seconds before so the panic was short lived image

  • It was good to see so many smiling runners - at least, I think they were smiles image - from everyone running by that bloke on the ladder on Sunday morning . . photos are online now at . .
