I'm planning on reccying the Thames Trot 50 on 27th Dec from Oxford train station Just thought I'd put it on here in case you can join me. About 7mm pace for 25 miles to a train station so then you can get the train back. Spread the word.
Hi,I'm thinking about doing this race but have a couple of questions please. How far is Henley train station from the finsh?What time does the shuttle bus go from Oxford Trail Station to the start? I'm thinking of driving to Oxford station, leaving the car there and then catching to train back to Oxford from Henley. I ahve done an off road 50 miler, very hilly this year and won it. My marathon time is 2h33m, I completed my 10th yesterday so I would hope to do well in yothis racece.
