Over 40 entries in a week. Numbers have started to go out. This will fill up fast now Eynsham is full.
11/11/2011 at 21:25
Hi,are there still places left for this race?
11/11/2011 at 21:31
Since I won't be racing I suppose I had better help out
12/11/2011 at 08:10
Yes places still available susiebe but filling up fast
23/11/2011 at 16:08
Less than 100 places left. Bearing in mind that over 150 entries in past week likely to be full before next weekend.

Enjoyed this one last year, fingers crossed that the cold weather doesn't worsen before Sunday!

Cold is OK (as long as it's not icy underfoot!). It's the wind I'm keeping an eye on!
08/12/2011 at 15:35
The Bus - was worried about frost/ hearing the news sounds like it could be a tad windy!

Had a look for mine and cant find it, hoping its collection on the I think it was last year???

 Would be grateful if someone could post back to I can sleep easy!

Blimey Brian - you were hoping weren't you? Tucked up in bed long before 23.48 the night before a race

Mind you, was a bit odd posting the number but not the chip....

12/12/2011 at 14:50
The bus - all down to cost, every chip not returned we have to pay for. We take 600 entries & yet only 466 turned up y'day. We can't guarantee that all those not there will return them.

Glad you enjoyed the event. Hear 4k to 6k was tough.

Fair point Mr Weeble - hadn't thought of that. Large amount of no shows at this time of year I guess as well, given the amount of lurgies around and the weather forecast!

4k - 6k was quite tough! Shame really, as this was a last ditch attempt for my 10k target this year, whihc I missed by 16 secs! Alwyas the danger with a flat, exposed course I suppose. 

I think the entrance and exit to the airfield has deteriorated quite a bit over the last few years and does slow you up a little as is a bit tricky to take at speed. Has there been any thought of how this could be improved at all? Matting or the like perhaps? Appreciate it's a difficult one though.

It's a good point and something we'll look at next year.

Nightmare to just miss a PB, I'm sure you'll hit it next year
13/12/2011 at 10:41

Thanks Mr Weeble...

Definitely gives me a target for early in the new year!

Great race, very enjoyable and well organised.  Look forward to doing it next year.  The airfield didn't seem too bad - a little bit blowy but that was better than last year's ice.

Many thanks to the kind person who found my car key and handed it in - luckily i only realised I had lost it about 5 seconds before so the panic was short lived

It was good to see so many smiling runners - at least, I think they were smiles - from everyone running by that bloke on the ladder on Sunday morning . . photos are online now at . .
