I'm in for the bath half again next year - will be my fifth year, love it! Re accomodation, it is a really touristy town so loads and loads of B&Bs, or the Hilton is right in the twon centre. Can be a bit crowded for the first couple of miles, and the 'Copafeel' charity crowd do it every year so expect a lot of boobies running round the course!
Think the seppd might catch you out Sweatband! It is not perfect, having used a few time. I have found several runs/rides not register, and today cannot even get it connected, which means £10 less to charity
Put aside the fact this is tons of free advertising for Samsung, this looks like a great little free app. The premise is that it uses your phone's GPS and tracks every mile you walk, run or cycle. And for every mile you complete, Samsung will donate £1 to charity. I haven't tried it yet but downloaded the app today. You do need to add a photo of yourself to the avatar (although you could probably add your cat/dog etc ), but I can't see a catch, so if you are doing the miles anyway, make them count!
