I'm looking forward to the 20 mile event next weekend.
Many others doing it? If so, have you had a race pack yet?
I've e-mailed the organisers so fingers crossed!
Mine arrived today as well been told they were held up by the printers.
My wife will be serving on the drink/ cake stall so be nice think I got car park duty before run so hope it warms up a little
I am signed up for the 10 mile race (thought it was 10km when I entered - doh !!). - did I see this race down as one of the best rated ones last year on this website?
My main question: Anyone know what the car parking arrangements are? I saw something on the website about £1 parking so I am assuming that some is available.
I need to get away fairly promptly at the end of the day, so don't really want to have to wait for the 20 milers to finish before I can get the car out.
Is on-street parking acceptable? The trains don't work out unfortunately.
I think the parking was fine last year and there wasn't any queuing to get out. You can park in the village but choose your spot carefully to avoid annoying villagers - it may be better to park say 10 mins walk from the start to be right out of the way. I also remember they were keen that you didn't park on the course!
Which car park was that Vet51? The official car park is on some old military land south west of the rail station, It's only about 1km away from the start, and a £1 to cover the cost.
Might take 30 mins after the 20miler I suppose
Thought the service on the Tea and cake stall was first CLASS !!!!
I ran the Bramley 20 for the first time yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. I prefer the quieter races (ie rural and less support) and found this one top class. The marshalls did a super job, as did the youngsters handing out water. I particularly and almost sadistically liked the way the 10 mile finishers were funnelled to the left whilst the 20-milers went to the right. Boy did the course thin out somewhat and make you feel quite alone.
And thanks goes to the little girl around 7 / 17 miles on the farm at the top of the hill on thr right who blew her whistle for England. She was a little star!!!!
