2008 entries now open
I saw two in club kit popping out of the bushes when I got up there.
Is the area not known for "dogging"?
Alas missed this race as had some cycle racing to do.
i'll defo be suggesting we tape off the side funnel next time - it's not fair to those who waited in the queue
defeats the object if they waited at the top of the dipper - like having a pie without the crust!
re: starting further back - the problem is that the lane further back is underwater, so you'd be standing around with wet feet ............
...........on the other hand - that'll be fun!!!
Mr Phil [still fond of pastry based items] wrote (see)
You're so right there Phil - just what is the point of that? They are kidding no one and making a mockery of the thing - name and shame I say - having said that, I suppose that not rushing up the dune knowing that there will be a wait at the top may be construed by some as a bit of cheating!
I was not happy at having to miss this, this year - so keep that dune nice and sandy and the river nice and wet, and I'll be there next year!
results are now up
You know the times to the top of the dipper, which point are they to ?
I see, so you really do have to beat the log-jam next year to stand a chance of a decent time. Will have to pop round there sometime and try it out, in a few weeks obviously.
It was quite funny to watch the top 2 guys battling it out at the top of the dipper - you could see the pain in their faces!
take it easy and rest that leg alex!
ah! the old chesnut rears its head again!!
[shameless plug time[
any first timers that enjoyed the race and are locally based are welcome to come along to one of our training nights and join in our banter -
occasionally we run, mostly we chat and drink and eat!
some good photos of the event in this weeks Gem - if anyone wants my copy let me know before it goes in the recyle bin!
I think they can be ordered if you're in print!
