Entries up to nearly 300 judging by my number. Really am looking forward to the BBQ (and the run of course.....)

Can't wait to see the course... no idea what to expect but sounds good. Hope it dries out (I only have road shoes :-)

90 min, are they the concurve ones? coz we've only got small sizes left but we sell the Thorlos and Fox river and they're very paded under foot and around the ankle to protect achilles. oh and I've just remember we got some Hilly aswell and they're nice too.

HMG - No, X-Socks is a make, Iron Bridge Runner in Exeter have stopped stocking them & I was wondering if you did. Not to worry. Yes, I'll be there with the boys tomorrow.

I thought medium dry white wine was your cure for everything?

I thoroughly enjoyed this race last year and enjoyed it even more this year.

Thanks to all involved.

Btw - nice t-shirt.

Oh yes: MSG - where were you? Hope you're okay.

Ops....had hoped no-one would notice I wasn't there lol. Second person to ask!

I am ok ta, have had a bit of a cold for over two weeks and feel some days like doing something and some days like not doing anything - no energy....today was a no energy day.

Hubby and I were both down to do it and we both over slept too, which wasn't a good start.

Missed out big time, as I was quite looking forward to Crowcombe Hill...NOT!!!

How did you get on?

I think I am well out of the running thing at the mo.....need some omph to get back into it.

Doing the race for life at Street on 24 July.....really want to train up a bit and do the 5k in a good time! Just need the motivation to get back out there again.

This just has to be one of the most scenic runs ever and to the marshall at the top of "that" hill, I really was admiring the view , honest!
Beautiful weather, beautiful views, friendly marshalls and even the water tasted lovely. Perhaps my only complaint is that my new trail shoes still look a bit pristine!!

Only hope the Black Death lives up to its predecessor.

An excellent race! Beautiful scenery, gorgeous weather, friendly marshalls, thanks to the lady handing out the Jelly Babies!
Nearly missed it parked the car at 5 to 11 and ran to the start, just in time for the countdown.
To round off a great day my daughter won one of the spot prizes.

Hi Guys,
What a lovely run it was yesterday and the views on the top of the HILL were amazing.
Knee suffer a bit yesterday, so I'll be resting this week, might cycle instead!

The Provisional Results (Pre-Enter) are up!

Hi HMG
Sorry I didn't get to see you at the GR8. I was too busy trying to breath after getting up the hills.
