Make sure you pin the number the correct way up. Otherwise the event photographs will not be able to pick out you number!

Great thread.

I've worked for a race organiser and have packed up and sent out race packages etc. but i couldn't get my head round what had gone wrong here. It did make me laugh....

Saw this on Facebook, you have brightened up my morning. You can be sure it's going to get lots of looks now.

Good story Ant. I'm going to have to nick it for my blog I'm afraid, but as you've fronted up and admitted your cock-up I'm sure you won't mind!

Thanks Yeo for that link.  Dragon Breath's comment about the train journey has had me howling in the office; better save the rest of it for lunchtime.

Ant Knee.  During the race on Sunday, if you see a piece of paper at the side of the road with a single downward line on it, that means you've gone one mile.  Then there will be one with a downward line and a circle: this means you've gone tem miles.

You might also see one with two downward lines: that's eleven miles down. After that, it gets a little more complicated.

I will be watching the Lichfield half this weekend so will watch out for 1111 !!!

"I am not a number, I am a series of downward lines"

But seriously, all the best on Sunday

Should have said - all the best!!  I bet no one will get a reception like you.  This has been shared so many times on fb!!! 

Will be looking out for you
