I agree with that too but part of my post was based on the fact that Mr Foo is arranging and he may be racing late season.  If I were event organiser, I wouldn't be wanting to herd a bunch of pirates around Essix three weeks before my A race of the year.

 what Mouse said .. Wales being my A race as well (OK so when you stop ROFL at my claiming any race as an A race.... lets say the race where i aim to be finished longer before the cut off than my other races this year )

I'm in Switzerland 28th July. August would suit me, but happy to be flexible (careful, Mousey...)

I'd be up for this, I'm doing Henley so as longs as it doesn't clash with race or critical training I'm in.

Don't panic M..eldy, Scuba's 'critical' training so far involves doing a recce of Henley bike course with me - we're starting and finishing with cake and I reckon there's probably soemwhere to stop half way for a cake top up

Meldy - Sorry I'm new to the whole pirate life I'll learn. I'm sure Rafiki will put me back on track over the weekend.

Update!!!

They have the 17th of August available which happens to be my birthday too!!

It is £140 to book the whole 2km circuit for 2hrs

Or

They can split the circuit, Lower 1km flat or the upper 1km hilly, this is £82 for 2 hours.

Looking at the general interest i'm inclined to go for the whole circuit, if we get 15-20 it's about £7 each.

Start with a time trial maybe 3 laps timed and then divide the finsihers list into pools for a scratch race for the second hour, What do we think???

I've also happy to have the post race BBQ at my place, it's about a 25 min drive away and have loads of floor space if people want to bring a sleeping bag or we have the usual Premier inn/travelodges near.

Could do with a bit of a list update as well so i can gauge interest on that date, if it doesn't suit you put one that does and others may join it.

I suggest just picking a date that suits the organiser, youll never find a date that suits everyone.

We need idea to make sure that the second race part doesn't turn into a massive pile up as people still have Wales/Henley after this.

Couple of ideas so far.

If we divide the list up after the TT, so say the top 10, next 10 etc we could

Elimination style race, where the last across the line drops out, leaving only two to sprint.

Team relay, divide the group and everyone does one lap.

Any other ideas??
