Great news Gul - please tell me that's not you in that photo!!

Guilty as charged (no 1122). I didn't have any photos on the PC I was using, and would have happily just left it blank but the website errored when I did that. So that's an online photo from GEAR 2009 i.e. Kings Lynn 10k.
Jools - good luck with getting a leg near Reading.
I'm a bit concerned that the last tracker update was at 1:30 am. Anyway, it was almost back on schedule at that point, so good news for PMJ !

'Ten more stages of the Real Relay from Oxford to Reading will go online between 0830 and 0900 on Friday morning.Put your name to a stage at"'

I'm waiting for Newbury-Basingstoke as that's my home patch and would love to take it past my house.

I'm wishing they'd put them up in the next 2 minutes because I've got to go to court and be internet-free then.  Sod sod sod sod sod.

Jools - get someone to sign up for you.

Gul - I think the baton is illuminated at night.

My stage tomorrow.

Bike It - good luck. I'm planning to take the baton past my house too.
Jools - how annoying. The new stages are now on the website as far as Reading. Maybe you could do Reading onwards when it appears if someone beats you to the previous one. They're filling up fast - a certain forumite has already bagged one.
Minni - you must be getting very excited now. Enjoy yourself. BTW Good news on the light sabre. Someone at work has offered to lend me a headtorch (you may have guessed that the threat of redundancies has gone for the time being) - so belt and braces.

22/06/2012 at 09:37

Oh no, they've all gone now. And someone has signed up for two, which seems a bit unfair.

22/06/2012 at 09:48

Got my stage, only 9 out today and they went in 5 minutes.

PMJ - well done. Fancy doing another one in Norfolk? The two stages immediately following mine are still going begging. Or maybe I'll just have to keep running and do 33 miles to handover at Kettlestone

We are going to see the official torch on the 8th at Hatfield so can't do them.

The tracker in the baton has broken and a new one is going to be fitted at the end of my stage so not sure how accurate the timing will be for the rest of today and tomorrow. I'm due to be finished about 5:30 pm.
22/06/2012 at 11:07

PMJ - that's fine. I see someone has just signed up for Sandringham to East Rudham leg in any case. BTW Keswick to Scafell Pike still open if anyone's interested. Now who do we know who likes running in the Lake District...?

22/06/2012 at 11:08

Minni - x-post. Do you have to give the next person an ETA when you set off or do people just rely on the tracker?

22/06/2012 at 11:17
No, I've got mobile numbers of the 4 or 5 runners before and after me and we do a sort of telephone tree. I will have most contact with the runner 2 before and 2 after me.

I think they are doing some kind of bidding for the Scafell Pike stage.

Good luck to all the running bearers and bearers to be. I had a look at my stage but they had gone some time ago.

10 mile on wed which was hard work followed by 5 x 800 with the club last night in the rain. All around 2 min 40 with the last a bit quicker at 2 min 36 so quite pleased with my short work but need to get back into the longer stuff to keep my hand in. Maybe after this weekend .

Just back from court so at least I missed by a mile!  I'm starting to wonder what is wrong with those 2 stages which just haven't been snapped up...

Minni: what information do they need, so I can prime someone in case I can't be near a computer for the next lot?

22/06/2012 at 17:52

Jools:  if you click on a stage still available you can see what you need to sign up.  Basically just name, DoB, mobile, email, address, a sentence stating why you want to take part, click lots of boxes then hit enter.

It seems there has been an ebay acution running for the Scafell Pike legs.

Northumberland coast weather report for Minni: very changeable today, loads of rain, absolutely tipping down in Berwick this afo. Southerly headwind blowing up the coast for the last two days. Hoping it's better tomorrow....

Thanks Poacher! I've just been out for 5 miles and got soaked. Hasn't helped my hangover...
22/06/2012 at 20:44
Saturday races of Great North Swim cancelled! Boooo.

I'll have to just wear my wetsuit round the house then .... Disappointed

Sorry to hear about your injury issues MsE, how is it now?

Well done to fellow relayers on getting places <img src='/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' /> Expecting a full report Minni!

Congrats on the PB PMJ. And great racing from OO too! Itching to have a good burn up, might try to sneak in to the Lancaster 5K next week.
