Thank you. You know the prizes are to the value of. We are now reverting back to high street shopping vouchers for this event and giving 25 spot prizes of the £240 ,studio family portrait vouchers at a top Studio, superb prizes, we think this is fare to all
When I read the opening post I assumed the prizes would be cash. I am never near any prizes so not aware this isn't allowed. Agree with Alan that you should be more careful with this type of post in teh future, very misleading.
Thanks Maxpowet NW agree, but they really are super prizes, maybe giving them as spot prizes gives you and many others a shout
Given I usually run this race between 1:40 and 1:45 I would say the spot prize is my only chance of a prize
For third year running I am doing this and Inskip as a double header training boast! Great races.
I'm never going to be in the prizes, but I certainly wouldn't be tempted a studio family portrait thanks! :-O
Therefore no, these prizes are NOT better than cash! How can they be?
Never knew this. So what races are organisers allowed to award cash for?
Am doing this again, enjoyed it last year and was a nice way to kick the year off.
Bloody hell, always wanted a family portrait. Preferably in black and white, strolling barefoot through leaves and smiling wistfully.
Going to have to ramp up the training for this.
Some things never change Alan!
Mr Taylor, you have entry forms out for a half marathon in April Valiants Half stating that it is pancake flat and accurately measured, the course has not been measured true or not, is at a case of double standards and misleading to the public, I gather Paul Walsh is measuring it in the New year. When I spoke to you today I merely stated that it was wrong to start threads critising other events. I was informed that you were a sewer/drain man at work, a very difficult job especially this time of year, someone has to do these thing thankfully. What is a shack of hand, new one on me
Marvelous, keep up the good work, threads really work to keep evenjts ticking along so long as you keep feeding them, vanished, were too? keep up the good work
Alan no one suggested you measure your own courses, this is not allowed. We are very short of course measurers in the North West, if you fancy being trained up for one contact Brian Porter. Paul Walsh is a good course measurer and has time to do the job, I fit measures in throughout the North between other commitments outside the sport, also a retired gentleman but other things take priority sometimes, golfing fanatic mainly in my aged years, it's good fun really
