From what I remember, the course is pretty open to members of the public so theoretically, they should be able to stand and cheer and laugh almost anywhere, but the majority tend to congregate in the start finish area. You run through this about mid-way through the event as well as the course forms a figure of 8 (VERY loosely speaking). It's also where the car park is, along with the tea/coffee stop and the inevitable burger trailer.

There isn't a lot of shelter on offer, however, so if the weather's a bit suspect, they are going to want umbrellas at the very least (gazebo? marquee? tent?!!!)

But I guess seeing as I have already said I would do Tough Guy.....this surely can be as bad as that!!!!!

Fantastic! Like the new date, nearly caught me out though. Missed the lake at the end of the race last year, far too civilised for my liking. Come on you organisers, make us suffer for our sport, you know we love it!!

we haven't done in the past few years - Aldershot is a bit too packed with squaddies for most peoples liking.

(you probably won't break any nails, but you may not be able to feel your feet for a while afterwards!)

well i'm used to that!!

May be worth sorcing a pub out of the locality a bit if people are up for a spot of lunch?? there are some nice places out of the garrison??

I'm sure we can come up with something.

I see the little leopard hasn't put her name down for this one, must go and give her a prod...

Can anyone who's done this course in the past say whether spikes are appropriate or not?
24/09/2004 at 17:50
If you can keep the things on your feet, then wear them !!

Personally, I don't think they'll make a lot of difference, but I can't say I have ever tried it.
