What could be a more fun way to kick off FLM training? Entry form says scenic and challenging - I wouldn't disagree with that :-)

Still I will have been carbo loading for the previous couple of weeks!

Talk me into it, Tiger!

Not sure I can cope with another trip to the old folks that soon after Crimbo, but my diary's empty that weekend so.......

I know the area/route well, so it's mostly just a case of doing a Mrs Doyle - "Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, GO ON!!". That kind of thing.

Not having run the race before, I felt too timid to answer the other thread, but for my money, I'd love the 2005 course to be as off-road (and challenging) as possible - make use of the natural assets, since there's no way of holding a fast road 10 on the Downs. I'd send my entry form off today for something like that.

Swerve - there is too much in your response that reflects my thoughts about going back home again that soon after christmas!!! I might, I might not... are there entries on the day?

Tiger which club normally runs this race to see if there is a map of the course
03/11/2003 at 15:58
dont need a map - you just need to know that the infamous Ebbesham Lane is part of it.

..coincidentally, posted my entry at lunchtime for this start-of-the-FLM-build-up (ere we go again!)

Ebbesham Lane - what is this all about
03/11/2003 at 16:06
look here.

my parents live really close... would love to do this as i used to see some nutters occasionally when i lived there.

will have to work out what the crimbo arrangements are tho.

heehee.. for a moment i thought it was down ebbisham lane.. until i realised which way up the map was!
03/11/2003 at 16:09
And the good news is ...

it's two laps, Ebbisham Lane twice!!

add me to the list of those in need of a little more persuasion... its the day after the surrey cross countries and Ive never run them before, but I have done the Tadworth (Five), could be tempted

Stage 1: Print off the entry form
Stage 2: Wait patiently to be persuaded to fill-in said entry form by people mentioning pubs and socials and stuff like that . . .
04/11/2003 at 23:02
Finish is very close to a pub ;)
04/11/2003 at 23:12
now if you can persuade mrs_m to run it i'd be even more impressed !
04/11/2003 at 23:41
Just come in from a very pleasant evening at the pub post-Club sesh.

Am ready and willing to print off the entry form and send it off.

I don't have a printer at home.

Curses!

Still on the to-be-persuaded list then.
