Tracey - Big W you mentioned? Is that Wendover Hill is it?

I did the Endurance marathon which goes opposite way at start to BHM so 7 bitches in early but then also added in some massive hill not that long after. Even at 10m you respected it! Very rewarding climb though as you take in the views

the Big W is part of the Jog Shop 20 course - part of the course goes down and up  the Downs twice and from the base looks like a W.  it's the toughest part of the JS20....

just had confirmation from BHM of our marshalling spots for this and as per previous years when not running, we will be at Lullington Heath as you come out of Friston Forest heading towards the Long Man; and later just above the steps before the finish.  Give us a shout - we'll happily abus...encourage you as you go by.....

And if you have any family and friends who'd like to marshal or volunteer to help on the day, the organisers are still looking for people so get in touch with

Julie.paul@eastbourne.gov.uk for more info.

so are you that nice man in the wide brimmed sunhat (!) leaning on the gate just before the chalky ice-rink down to CP 1 ?

nope - that's Peter. we're at the checkpoint before that at Lullington Heath just as you come out of the forest and head over to where Peter is.

and that chalky ice rink was very slippery last Sunday

Well that should ensure that I fall over at least once!

Redhead - I fell over in the mud near the river before you reach the sausage roll CP in 2009

that muddy stretch by the river just before Litlington is usually pretty bad especially as the cattle hoofs chew the ground up - this year it's going to be even worse with all the rain!

in other news - it's pissing down again on the course....

fatbuddah - the worst bit was I went to get up and pulled a muscle But 2 lovely Beachy walkers pulled me up. I hate mud, but had to put my hands in it to try and get up lol

Glad I'm not doing Jog Shop Jog 20 this Sunday as the weather forecast is for rain ;(

I was thinking about Jog Shop Jog 20 as a warm-up but might pass - I can run in the rain much closer to home!
