Is this event real or a phishing attempt?

I'm so used to Facebook - I was just looking for the like button...

I want mine to hurry up and come! Even went outside just now to double-check if the postman did his usual parcel trick, and left it by the front door!!

My race pack arrived today too, but my Medium T-Shirt is huuuuuuge!

Going to e-mail them to ask if there is any chance of a change, but I'm not hopeful!

Mine hasn't arrived yet, are they cotton t-shirts or tech tees?

It's one of these in red touie2

 I've either been sent the mens fit one in error, or they are just sending mens fit to everyone which doesn't help the sizing issue!

Those look nice although if they are sending men's sizes I'll be able to wear it as a dress lol

Got my pack as well. Good info booklet answers all the questions. Really excited about the run now. I have been trying to get on a site tour and now i'll be there on foot and can view at my pace (which I hope will be under 40 minutes - crowds permitting.

they are tech shirts, flattering fit but red is SO not my colour,

it does say in the race book that you get that you can change your shirt size, and there is info on how to. its on page 4

Has anyone got an injury preventing them from doing this yet?

I'd love to do this one and am gutted about missing out in the ballot.

My pack hasn't arrived yet.

Can anyone suggest what to do to 'freshen up' afterwards? I want to make a bit of a day of it (might stay down the night before) so would like to go for dinner later but not if I'm all sweaty. Do we think they'll have facilities on site? I couldn't see anything on the website. Don't really want to shell out another 100odd quid for another night just so I can have a shower, especially as I have to be back in Bedford for 8am Sunday morning.

go spend £4 for an hours gym session at a local puregym? or a swimming session at a local pool, and just use the shower?

My pack came today. Now trying to work out how to arrive at the stadium dressed to run without looking eccentric on the train for a couple of hours in the morning. Quick change in a phonebox, maybe?

I no longr care about looking odd of the way to races, I'll be either bussing or training in my kit

My pack arrived today, t shirts baggy but not too extreme!

James Y - there are always gym offers on for trial membership, http://www.lafitness.co.uk/gym/  for instance, you could sign up for a trial at the nearest gym and turn up after the race and do a warm down and use their showers.

Still haven't had my pack, I think I said I'd be sub-40 mins but as I have been injured/then had a small unrelated operation/then had a horrible cold/cough I may be closer to 45 minutes now.
