That was a fun race. Great fun running with Scotty. The marshals were awesome. The conditions were ok to run in but would have been grim to marshal in. Thanks to all.

2bt - think it was too long a day for me as well!!

2bt I saw that. That's what you get when you have a couple of glasses of wine and a few beers after a race! Mind you, it is always best to over-compliment JFDI, at least while she is in charge of the race computer!

But well done everybody

Shame about the weather as someone has whinged in their rating that it was a dull route - in the sunshine its gorgeous!  unfortunately the weather is the one thing we don't have control over!

TriWill indeed it was a great race for A&D - thanks for the support

JDFI - I would say that the half route is better, but this races is flatter. You will always get someone moaning about something. His real problem is probably that he didn't get a pb.

PSC - well done you. Still have memories of your first ever Thanet RC race.

The George family had a fab time at the santa run yesterday. The course measured short but it it is a charity race and not a club one. I don't think my hubby could have run more than his 2.95 miles anway. He did it in 20:43 which is 7:01 pace. I am very proud of him, he did say he was dizzy at the finish. Andre didn't like the start horn and got upset but we did it in 38:22 which is good. Kierrah finished  way before me and Andre, but she didn't have a watch to time herself.

Hope you all had a great race in the lovely Thanet weather.

I'd have never said it was a dull route!

Well done Tracey and family

Well done Tracey et al!!

Thanks to all the organisers and marshalls on the day.  They really did keep me going with their words of encouragement.  It was my first 10 miler, so I was relieved to make it.  I looked a right sight trying to walk to my car afterwards though! 

 I'm looking forward to finding my next event now.  Running is sooooooo addictive!!!!

Tim well done!  If you like bike riding try the Thanet Mountain Bike Duathlon on 3 January!!!

Message to Helen Macdonald 4 as I can't email you directly - apologies for not personally  looking after your bag on the day but the desk was extremely busy and I was not prepared to look after the belongings of someone I don't know.  Sorry if you think I was rude it was certainly not meant to be.

I don't know what others do, but I generally only take a few quid to a race to cover cups of tea, Mars or whatever. If I do have to have more with me I lock it securely in my car.

The review she wrote was pretty "brutal" and made some pretty damning assumptions. The whole of TRAC is unfriendly because you did not agree to look after her belongings for her? This flies in the face of 99.9% of reviews so don't lose any sleep over it.

Photos of the event are now on

Fab pics even though they did not take one of the lead bike
11/12/2009 at 21:12
What make was the bike; I'm sure we can google it and admire it for ourselves!

That's about right Scotty!
