This is a bolt out the blue (sorry)

Do you know the ground it covers Matt?

There is a map of the course on the website. Had a quick look this morning and think I know most of the area. Very scenic with a few hills, 99% off road, couple of stiles, some single track and wide paths. Plus there is a bbq and bar afterwards with a train station on the doorstep to get home afterwards:-)

I think the race is nearly full, get your entry in asap.

It will be great to see a local race full to capacity.

I will get my form off tonight.

I'm one of the organisers of the Blakedown Bolt - thanks to everyone who's entered! We're now absolutely full, despite increasing our original entry numbers by 10%! Fingers crossed for the weather - at the moment it's forecast to be 13C and cloudy, so should be pleasant to run in. See you all there!

Looking forward to this. Kiterunner you have mail.

Got a place Matt so all I need now is for you to pay for the beer.

This thread is very quiet considering the race is full.

Waylander- If you're first Cobra runner home I'll buy you a beer.

Doubt very much I'll be running due to injury. If not I'll be marshaling somewhere.

Bad luck Matt hope its not too serious.

Not sure who we have in but if I am fist Cobra runner home we will have had a bad turn out.

Looking forward to this.

Just thought is your number up for grabs?
18/06/2007 at 17:16
Afraid I've already promised it to someone. You'd be surprised how high the demand is for Bolt numbers, I'm sure I could make a killing on ebay.

Just spoken to one of my club mates who is looking for a number too - think there are a few from my club who assumed they could leave it late or enter on the day.

Just about to go for a little run to see whether I'm imagining my achilles soreness or not - may have to auction my number at to club mates if I'm not!

I missed this thread before.
Looking forward to the run, hopefully it won't dry out too much between now and Friday. The bad news is that I've lost my driver (she had a better offer), so I won't be able to take full advantage of the bar.

Walked part of the course last night (through the woods) and it's a bit on the muddy side, but if we don't have anymore rain it should dry out a bit - but whats a bit of mud anyway! At least the sand will be easier to run on? Oh and theres quite a few big puddles - thought I was going to need my wet suit.

Johnny Again- There is a train station right next to the start. I think thats how I'm going to get there.
19/06/2007 at 15:50
LR - thats just what I wanted to hear.

Matt- If I drive it could take me an hour or so to get through Kiddy, but if I go by train it would take twice that, and I'd be cutting it fine after work. So I can stuff myself at the BBQ but I'll have to stay off the pop.

Kiterunner - Did you know Lesley (maybe thats you?) has just sent out an email to everyone entered for the race with a 2mb attachment on it? - Thought my computer was going to die trying to download it!

On the flip side I like the paper saving involved!

Hopefully I shall be there.
