Have any of the ladies taken part in this event before? Seems quite expensive, but desperately trying to find a race for next Sat morning within 20 mins travel from home as i have to get back to do cricket teas. I have a personal challenge to race at least once a month this year at varying distances and need one for june.

Parkrun ?

THanks Cougie, did think about Parkrun, but they are further away than this one for me and I am ideally looking for at least a 10K as part of HM training plan for Sept

I love this bit.. "I have to get back to do cricket teas..."! Does that still happen - the chaps play cricket and the ladies do the tea?

Yes still happens, my mum still does it even though I haven't played for about 15 yrs.

It's like the 1950s in some parts of the country! What ho!

She does live in deepest darkest Cornwall so it's pretty similar to the 1950's

I live in Gloucestershire, it isn't the dark ages here I promise, just a tradition. My hubby is captain and nobody else will do them so each home game it is left for me to do.  It is a pain in the b*m to be honest but somebody has to make them.  Both my sons play at junior level so I could potentially have another 20 years of tea making before they find a partner who will do them.
