    Tinks - for most of us, this wont be fast. More like plodding around and trying not to get pushed into puddles by your 'mates' followed by a liquid lunch.


    Or is that just me?
  • lol Gavo. Just took a look at the race photos from last year, and everyone seems to be laughing running through the puddle, which has to be a good thing!
  • Sounds like a plan Gavo
  • GavoGavo ✭✭✭
    I do realise that I've just given carte blanche to a bunch of forumites to abuse me for 8 miles.

    Now, if I can just edit out my last post by making it sound like an option that elite athletes like myself won't be taking.
  • Oh yes gavo, surely thats the whole reason for doing it, the deep joy that is had from accidently tripping up your pals and seeing them fall face first into wet, sloppy mud must be enormous....or is that just me?

    (note to self: leave any white kit at home. End of note)
  • Gavo, number 13, boy that could be really unlucky!

    I think someone's trying to tell me something. I'm sure that I could get lost on the way (as anyone who has ever had me as a passenger will agree) and only find the place after the race.
  • Tinks maybe you should join in, i've never done this and am only doing it for what should be the hilarity of crawling through mud, wading into cold december water for 8 miles.....er...er...oh shit!

  • tri-tony, oh heck, i think the only reason to do this is for the hilarity! No a course for a PB thats for sure!
  • Anyone worried about getting lost during the race. I'm fairly sure when I did the Grim 2 years ago there were corpses lurking in the depths of the mud pools from the previous year.
  • Got my number today...

  • Frankysab.
    That was no corpse, that was me taking on water :-).

    It is a great fun event, and I ran the last 2 years in footy boots so no need to buy mega exoense off road shoes. (The sponsors will probably ban me now!!)
  • Tara has been trying to talk me into this and I am quite tempted so have been trying to talk work mates into it as well....how long do you reckon before entry closes? Seems like the numbers are quite high already...
  • apparently postal closing date is 27th november but I'd get your entry in soon as I reckon it's quite a popular race.

    Was waiting on team mates to sign up but one has already completed his application online without us so I guess we'll all be running as individuals!

    No number yet, this race sounds a gag. Is it compulsory to trip up Gavo at the water obstacles?
  • Tinks you in yet?
  • Ok, I have thought about it very carefully and I shall be wearing waders for this one.
  • Yay! Good to have you on board and to know that you bow to peer pressure ;o)!

    Concern over shoes for this one. Can't be bothered to buy special water shoes esp. as have weird shaped feet and always blister issues at the beginning.

    I am looking forward to the "obstacles" though.
