Thanks Keep Left. I'll see if I can get a suitably positioned relative to hand my shoes to as I enter the sand. The map is very small scale but does appear as though the finish is right on the border between sand and land. Can't wait! Only a few weeks to go now!
I've entered for this. Was wondering if it's suitable to run barefoot? Looks like the first part from Flookburgh might require shoes, but could I ditch them (in a bin) after a mile or so and do the remainder without? Wasn't sure about what the channels were like under foot (any stones?) and if the timing chip was required to be attached to shoes? Thanks.
I am a bit disappointed to have had no acknowledgement of my entry (and have been sitting eagerly by my inbox/phone for weeks) only to now discover that an announcement has been made on a completely different website. I know the original RW page only stated that those who were longlisted would be notified but I would have thought an announcement on the RW site to say that had been done would have been in order (at least to put the rest of us out of our misery).
I entered this, but didn't receive an acknowledgement of entry so not even sure if it was received. I have Friday booked off (provisionally) just in case, but there isn't much time now for travel/accommodation arrangements
The note at the foot of the above link from John states:
'Longlisted candidates will be notified no later than Wednesday November 30'
so I was sort of hoping for a phone call tomorrow, but if successful applicants were notified a couple of weeks ago...
Kittencat (Kat?). The Admiral McBride - wow. That was my local when I was student in Plymouth in the early eighties. I spent almost all my grant in there playing Asteroids and putting Jo Boxers repeatedly on the Juke box!
Just recently came back to Plymouth (like coming home), and ran the Plymouth Half last year and this (2hrs 11mins). A great race (but some nasty hills).
