Claire, please keep us updated as some of us are travelling a fair way.

I still have a place on this up for grabs if anyone wants it. It's free too.

Which wave are you in?  My sister was looking for a place but she is slow and would be in Wave 2.


16/07/2012 at 13:58

oh Caroline...be gentle...they've put me in wave 3! LOL!!

16/07/2012 at 14:15

Erm excuuuuuuuuuse me but I'm in wave 2

16/07/2012 at 14:31

ooh have I made a mistake...is wave 3 the quick ones?

Oh god - I can't get out of this can I...Muttley have they accidently put you in the wrong wave?

16/07/2012 at 14:33

They put me in the "slow" wave 2... would be fine?

16/07/2012 at 14:33

I would think wave 1 are the racing-snakes...wave 2 the fair-to-middling ones and I am in with the 'stop for a picnic on the way round' crew as wave 3.

Hey IKFY - my sister would love your number...I do worry about taking someone else's number but do you think it would be ok?  I see that we have to collect the numbers at the start...are you male or female...because if you are male and they see my sister - who is obvioulsy female...they might get confused

Betty, Maybe I should be in Wave 3 also- I thought there were only 2 waves last year...

Im after a place if anyone has one please

16/07/2012 at 15:06

We can transfer I think. I asked them about it and they said all I need is the following:

Full name
Club (if any)
Contact number
Estimated time
Medical conditions (if any)

If it's too late to swap the name then never mind, she can buy some stilts and pretend to be me. PM me the info and I'll sort it out.

Hi IKFY - I tried to message you but it says that 'This user does not accept messages'?  Do you have to change something on your profile?

Caroline, the correct term is not "slow" but "endurance athlete", if you don't mind

16/07/2012 at 17:21

indeed Muttley...I am one of those also...

Woohoo - I'm in wave 1, which must mean I'm officially a racing snake......

Really looking forward to this one now, and hopefully the weather will be kind and not make the conditions too bad. Having said that, I enjoy splashing in muddy puddles

In wave 2 - planning to run around 2 hours. Praying/hoping that the course dries out so I can wear my regular road running shoes

YP - just found out its got kissing gates and other nonsense in Pretty annoyed as this was billed as a fast race and it clearly isnt going to be.

Still going to run it, but was going to be touch and go for a pb, but no chance now I fear with puddles, the new twisty start and stopping to open gates!

Sorry, box is ticked now. Try again

Yep thanks IKFY, - message is sent

Curly - what Wave are you in?

I'm planning to decide on the day between using this as chance to do a 13miles marathon paced effort, or racing it to see if I can get a PB. Either way, it's a stepping stone for me en route to the marathon in Sept, and hopefully it won't be peeing down for a change
