Things can be confusing when you are new to races!
Hope it goes well. I did it last year & there were nice mementoes.
Make sure you pin the number the correct way up. Otherwise the event photographs will not be able to pick out you number!
Not just me then, I can see myself doing this great post, hope the race goes well
still laughing, sorry i shared it too, can see this thread going viral hahaha
good luck in your race
Made my day! Thanks! And good luck for your race - just enjoy yourself
I've worked for a race organiser and have packed up and sent out race packages etc. but i couldn't get my head round what had gone wrong here. It did make me laugh....
Almost as much of a classic as
and nearly as good as this .....
Well, I put a link on my running club's facebook page,,, and I won't be alone.
You'll definitely be a celeb on the day
Good luck. Enjoy the race.
Classic, and made me laugh out loud!
Good luck for the race, and enjoy the support on the way round, am sure you will get lots
Just choked on my cornflakes! Brilliant......
Saw this on Facebook, you have brightened up my morning. You can be sure it's going to get lots of looks now.
Good story Ant. I'm going to have to nick it for my blog I'm afraid, but as you've fronted up and admitted your cock-up I'm sure you won't mind!
Thanks Yeo for that link. Dragon Breath's comment about the train journey has had me howling in the office; better save the rest of it for lunchtime.
Ant Knee. During the race on Sunday, if you see a piece of paper at the side of the road with a single downward line on it, that means you've gone one mile. Then there will be one with a downward line and a circle: this means you've gone tem miles.
You might also see one with two downward lines: that's eleven miles down. After that, it gets a little more complicated.
I will be watching the Lichfield half this weekend so will watch out for 1111 !!!
"I am not a number, I am a series of downward lines"
But seriously, all the best on Sunday
Should have said - all the best!! I bet no one will get a reception like you. This has been shared so many times on fb!!!
Will be looking out for you
Oh, dear... That's really made my day! Thanks!
I use a serif typeface for my races because I like the look, but now I can see it has the added benefit of being easier to read...
