It wasn't my idea - this came from a couple of runners in the early Midsummer Munro races who said that although the Munro was 'quite tough,' they would appreciate the opportunity to 'properly' test themselves.
I think that it is a 'proper test' for anyone. Wouldn't you agree?
As some of you may know, our shirt provider had a goof last week, and not all of our shirts were delivered to the race.
I have just had a phone call from them to apologise - they had inadvertently delivered only 3 out of 4 boxes to us, with the remaining shirts still at their premises, "the first time in 18 years that this has happened."
They are very sorry for the mistake.
The good news is, that if you did not get a long-sleeved Picnic marathon shirt on Saturday, you can send your name, gender and POSTAL ADDRESS to Charles@totalteamwear.co.uk and they will send you a shirt in the post. They have a list of entrants.
The shirts that were not delivered were all medium-sized - that is what he can send you.
Sorry for the mix-up, but we hope that this goes some way to assuaging any disappointment.
