My 10k time is about 1.10 at the moment but I can plod round 'comfortably' .  Normally at the back...

Thank you v much for your replies!

Okay, call me mad, but I'm going for it! I'll sign up before I have time to change my mind. Now I just need to find some hills to practise on...

Is it 10k or 12k this time? And what time do you think I should be thinking of, given my flat 10k time of 60 mins?

Your time doesn't really matter holeymoley. Try 1.30? And Dr Robs distances are approximate. None the less this is one of the best events in the race calendar. You'll love every second of it.

Thanks! Now what to go dressed as....

Insanity is a prerequisite for entry to this one. Especially if you've done it before and know what's coming.....

Getting confused and dazed already with all of this time and distance talk. I just hope that the mast and rigging manages to avoid any ship wrecking crossing the stepping stones and drifting down the Mole to Leatherhead.

Hoping to be back before the soup runs out.

Entered last night - haven't I learned anything at all from doing the half-marathon version of the Greensand last month??? Usually manage 55+ mins for a 10K, so I put down 2 hours for this one, just in case, after having read all your very interesting comments.

My only goal is to get back before the soup runs out.

Can't believe I just entered this. Only ever run road races with some undulations. Someone please reassure me that it's gonna be alright!
26/11/2012 at 20:18

It's going to be alright!!!!

The Knacker Cracker 2013 is now completely full - alas there is no waiting list and there are no entries on the day. (It really is full!). Come back next year!

woohoo well done Dr Rob, it's gonna be a party.

14/12/2012 at 21:44

We need more marshals! Anyone able to come down and help from 9.45 on 1 January will be gratefully accepted! Email me at rob@trionium dot com if you can make it... please!

Unfortunately I have a calf+achillees injury that is stopping me running, so if anyone wants to buy my place, please email me at  phil @  and hopefully Dr Rob can transfer my entry over

If you want to swap over, just email me the old name and the new name (DoB, club, email, age).

The course is WET and MUDDY! No sign of the stepping stones...

27/12/2012 at 12:58

I bet re very wet & muddy!!! So, how are we going to 'find' the elusive stepping stones then?

28/12/2012 at 14:13

Er... they are under water, to the tune of 2 feet - no way to get across them. Just run around the cone, and retrace your steps, back over the footbridge.

Philip H, is your place still available please? I was too late to enter this year, gutted. Would happily buy it from you. Thanks

I'm staring to get excited about this now - and I got the final piece of my costume sorted out today

I'm intending to do a long run on Sunday morning which will include most of the course, so it will be interesting to see just how slippy it is. I may even run down to the river to see if I can see the stepping stones....

Yes - still available right now, but I have had 2 emails asking about it ... but no-one has definitely committed.
