woohoo well done Dr Rob, it's gonna be a party.
We need more marshals! Anyone able to come down and help from 9.45 on 1 January will be gratefully accepted! Email me at rob@trionium dot com if you can make it... please!
Unfortunately I have a calf+achillees injury that is stopping me running, so if anyone wants to buy my place, please email me at phil @ pchweb.co.uk and hopefully Dr Rob can transfer my entry over
If you want to swap over, just email me the old name and the new name (DoB, club, email, age).
The course is WET and MUDDY! No sign of the stepping stones...
I bet re very wet & muddy!!! So, how are we going to 'find' the elusive stepping stones then?
Er... they are under water, to the tune of 2 feet - no way to get across them. Just run around the cone, and retrace your steps, back over the footbridge.

Philip H, is your place still available please? I was too late to enter this year, gutted. Would happily buy it from you. Thanks
Yes - still available right now, but I have had 2 emails asking about it ... but no-one has definitely committed.

My place has now been taken by Ellan I.
Has anyone else yet to decide what to wear? Oh god, I just want some inspiration! Looking forward to seeing you all on the slopes for some fun slippin' and slidin'
Looking forward to it-My 2nd Knacker Cracker. Going to be muddy,slippery...but good fun.
Going as one of the Thunderbirds.
Still undecided! Having a big party at ours tonight, and guests are threatening to kit me out in a selection of items from the wife's Autumn Collection! Serves me right for being an indecicive git!
Happy New Year and see you all in the morning.
The ship is ready. Just hope the wind always blows uphill.
Lemmy-Didn't think of that! No Virgil.
Had contemplated dressing up as a woman- but bottled it. I remeber last year over hereing a lady runner sayong that she thorught that the onlhy reason men were running was so that they could get dressed in drag- made me smile!!!
May need some flippers rather than trainers!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL YOU RUNNERS!!!!!
Going to bed now (not toooooo p#ssed, so should be ok for tomorrow ).
REALLY looking forward to the run (slip) now.
See y'all on the slopes.
I met a National Trust volunteer ranger while out laying out the course yesterday afternoon: "It's the muddiest I've seen Box Hill for 30 years," says he.
Good luck everyone!
Peter, you're welcome.
That was a lot of fun - I don't know about you guys, but I enjoyed it! Well done to all finishers... it was amazingly fast, given the conditions!
Fantabulous just about sums it up Young Pup
The conditions were perfect Rob in every way. The huge lake that crossed the path before the Smith and Western pub was so much fun.
Please pass on our thanks to the soup dragon. It was delicious
