Hi Legless, where do you run? Most of my miles are dispatched in Hainault Country Park.

I see there is a debate on where to go afterwards.

Personally, I would not wish to drive anywhere within 1 to 2 hours of the finish, due to the chaos leaving the carparks, nor would I wish to navigate a route 2 miles to a pub on foot, and then 2 miles back to the carpark, just for a drink.

Let's face it, only the diehards will bother, and it'll fizzle out as people turn their attention to getting home afterwards.

It would be better to meet at the licensed beer tent on the site, so there will be no walking/driving problems, and there is a chance most people are then likely to look in.

Hi Snoop, thats a brill idea, glad that someone has some prior knowledge of this event to know about these tents, ok what do you all think about this???

Also I notice in the race pack that there are various other attractions there on the day, do you think that we should maybe go with standing by one of these like the bouncy castle or something similar, rather than the toilets idea (in case they have moved)???

Cheers Snoop, hope you had a great hol as well

the second paragraph above relates to the meeting point beforehand.

If there's a beer tent on site then that's for me.

Saves a lot of hassle....

Does teh beer tent have beds?
23/09/2002 at 10:14
Hope they sell guinness..........
23/09/2002 at 10:17
probably! I went out last night on the raz (which was a bit silly really) and I feel like a baked turd. Can we please stop talking about booze... It is only 10:25!!!
23/09/2002 at 10:23
ok Jon, I enjoyed my guinness last night though :)
23/09/2002 at 10:34

I enjoyed the red last night, but for some reason it tasted different this morning!

That's it then.
The beer tent it is?
I trust there is only one beer tent?

I don't know how Blue Knees will feel if we don't meet at the porto-loos though.

Waapster-Normally run from Abridge to Theydon, then thro Epping forest, and back.
If you are around anytime, pop in and say Hi- I run the Blue Boar!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beer tents good for me!!!!!!!! means I can get more in before the wife finds me!!!!!!!

We could always make it really really easy and meet at the beer tents both before and after the race!

As long as you all do not get tempted by the alcohol.....
23/09/2002 at 14:39
As if .........

What about Blues Knees & the porto loos?
23/09/2002 at 14:41
I was just thinking in case the porto loos have moved this year, it may get confusing....

I am sure BK would survive :)
23/09/2002 at 14:51
Is he planning on drinking in the portaloos?
23/09/2002 at 21:07
I don't know what he does there, but apparently he spends a lot of time hanging around them before races/!?!?

Pleasant thought Jon thanks. PM it was a figment of New Runners imagination.

Beer tents sounds fine. See you all there
