Oh, I forgot to mention, there is a £100 bonus for the first couple to use the 'Reverse Estonian' or 'Dorking Hold' to complete the course from start to finish.
"Do you like Dorking?"
"I don't know, you naughty boy, I've never tried!"
...oh, and £500 in expenses to the winners to represent the UK at the World Wife Carrying Championships in Finland in July 2013.
20 couples registered to take part already (with 2 months to go)... looks like it will be a record field!
Have now full agreement (after rampant refusal) from real wife to enter with me. Daughter now photographer instead of proxy wife. Should have known there would be an "angle".........................There was !!!!.................Got it today.................. "I'll need a new out fit"
What, for the race? This I've gotta see!
Done - entered all of them except Leatherhead. Wife has elevated expectations to "vaste homage" on her 50th birthday instead of new outfit. I think this means a big present.
Rob, have you seen this
He he... good one! Fame at last. 30 couples signed up so far... a record entry. Entry still open (50 max...)
Oh yes! 38 couples registered to compete - the biggest field yet. Everything prepared... come along and enjoy!
Well, that was fun. Thanks to everyone who took part!
That was so much fun, Thank you for amazing organisation
You're welcome - I enjoyed it too. Photos, video and results are up on the web site, UK Wife Carrying Race.
Matt Witko - our winner in 2013 - has gone to the World Championships in Finland and has taken the bronze - on his first attempt!
Well done Matt and Harriet!
