the map doesn't seem to talky with the race guide  the map looks like 2 laps whilst the guide says 4 (3 3/4)

What the fook is happening on that run route? Lol can't quite work it out. so loop of lake, head out to river area, do lots of back and forths then head back?

Looks nice though, lots of running* beside the river.  Just noticed the 15 mile marker back at the lake, so two bizarre loops it is. It'll be good though because you'll see folk all the time with the switchbacks, which will help with motivation and support

The Race guide is last years course, it is two laps now.

I can understand why they have done it to stop the congestion on the tow path but seems a bit of a mess when you cross the bridge near the football club.

The main thing is just to soak up the atmosphere on the day, stay in the moment and enjoy ever second.  It is going to be MUCHO FUN!!!

of course its going to be fun - just be at the bar the night before the race and youll have as much fun as me

ive adapted the Fink plan - its called the Do You Fink I drank Enough? worked last time - sort of  ;)

TJ, as folk have said, you can just turn up on the Friday, unless you need an electgtrical hook-up - they have a limited number of them.  Barlos and Schmunks are trying to arrange free camping for the folk volunteering at the feedstation (on another thread), but if you're taking part you have to pay.  I just called them to double check, and they said the campsite is reserved for Outlaw that weekend, you don't need to book for non-elec pitches, and it is £9 per night (for one person in a tent, so prob. a bit more if your sharing etc.).

Here's a link to the site:

wonder if it will be £9 for one person in a six man tent.

I didn't mention to them that i'm 1 person in a 4 man tent, so lets just day it will be Badger!
