What have you lost and found?
I know what you mean about London using identical bags, the problem with Manchester was at London you are given a particular truck to leave your bag on which is linked to your number, at Manchester they just put your bag with everyone else's in no order at all
Cougie- They were a different design from London, the string at London was at the top of the bag which you could pull together
The one yesterday was pulled from the bottom to the top which you couldn't tie, only pull tight.
I took along my Nike rucksack, took over an hour to find it. Never been so cold in my life, thought i was gonna collapse in the tent, finally found my bag with the number tag gone, covered in mud and opened outside the tent. Nothing was missing and other than a squashed Double Decker choccy bar nothing was broken either.
My friends spent the entire time looking for me and even went into the medical tent to see if i was in there.
Would like to know what happened to the Army guys who took my bag when i first got there??
I was told by a marshall that they had been sworn at by some understandably miffed runners and the commanding officer decided that this was unacceptable (which it is) and took the decision to take them off the site.
As this is only second hand I am not able to confirm if that is the truth but it seemd a reasonable explaination when told to me.
Gaz, I said "STOP THE WHINGEING" ok, not only did I find my bag but an empty tent to get changed in, which the elite runners didn't even have
