Sorry I havnt been able to comment on the above, but BT in their wisdom disconnected my phone line and Broadband and everything else. I looked at the bottom of Ebbisham Lane on Thursday, there is quite a bit of mud about, but we have dug out the sides so any rain that might come will drain away. The are one or two serious pot holes at the bottom of the lane, so caution is necessary. Any tree bits have also been cleared away. The weather looks fine for Sunday, in the morning at least, and temperatures for the race are just about perfect. Although we have advised the stables along Ebbisham Lane that the race is taking place, if somebody feels that they really must take a horse out, there is not much we can do about it. So a bit of care is needed if you see a rider. By the way they are not race horses, the racing stables do not train their horses on a Sunday. See you all on The Downs, Dont be late.
Glad you have all been checking out the course. Dont forget prior to the race we have a team that will dig out the sides at the bottom of Ebbisham Lane so that the water can run away into the fields at either side. We will look after you all, and make the course as friendly as possible.
You are correct it is a closely guarded secret, but we try to obtain something that is useful. Looking forward to seeing you all. Lets hope the weather holds out and we dont get ice and snow, Ebbisham lane is a bit wet at the moment, but that makes it more fun dont you think? But not a day to wear all those nice new Christmas pressies of running shoes, as if you would. Entries are going well, we are up to just short of 500 at the moment.
