Good work Bedders - you doing the full next year ?

No, I am doing the Half again as I have some OW issues at the moment that I need to sort out before I go long again. 2014 I will do the full.

Challenge Henley tell me they've refunded me (I sent them a quick email) to get me onto the discounted rate so my thanks to go to Bedders.

So. I live in north Reading, about 6-7 miles away from Henley, so probably in a prime position to put people in the right direction for accommodation etc when the time comes. There's not much by way of camping or cheap(er) hotels etc in Henley, but over here we have a Holiday Inn express type place and loads of places to eat out (chinese, curry houses, and good italian for pasta the night before the race, and a wetherspoons for the day after   )

There are several short distance tri's over the summer which have river swims for those who would like to practice them, and we can organise a bike recce at some point too.

 

eek, wibble, etc

Cheggers, good call matey, I've sent them a grovelling email hoping for dosh too.

Swiss Bobby. Long time no hear! It must be 10 years since I last bumped into you, on the Red Start of some fun run from Blackheath.

Re Accommodation

For those that want to camp there is Swiss Farm campsite - the other side of the road from Phyliss Court transition area.  I've camped there a couple of times.  It's close to town centre and Phyliss Court and is a couple of miles along the same road from Henley Business School.

For those wanting a bit more comfort, there's The Catherine Wheel (a Wetherspoons hotel).  In the town centre and reasonably priced with rooms between £64-£84 at the moment.

I'm also local but NOT doing this, but I'd book up accomodation now if I were you...

Not doing the full.

I'm hoping the half is the club middle distance champs. I'll also see how the season goes.

I'll be there to scoop you up at the end... don't worry

06/10/2012 at 20:23

 Best work on your guns, then, if you're going to try to scoop me up! Because there's nothing of you (as you admitted to SportieDoc earlier!! )

Right, I'm booked in at the Premier Inn in Marlow. Didn't fancy the Catherine Wheel after reading the reports of 2am disco's!
