I am looking for a couple of crew members to sail from the Hamble on Thursday 3 September, in order to take part in the Alderney Half Marathon (or 10k) on the Saturday, returning to the Hamble on Tuesday 8 September - share all costs including yacht hire - approx cost £300 each. It’s possible to hire sailing gear if you don’t have it. Common sense and a can-do attitude are as important as experience - we have experienced sailors with us on the trip. We are planning on chartering an 8-berth yacht from the Hamble, so there will be plenty of room. If you want to see some of our other sailing adventures (including the Scottish Islands Peaks Race) - Trionium sailing. Please tell your friends!
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested!
Julia turned up to the Greensand Marathon in Dorking last year 'for a training run,' did her first marathon-length trail race, and won it in amazing style, setting the course record for ladies and men too (2:54 or so - for a tough trail marathon). It was quite an honour to see her run, so effortlessly and with an amazing stride length, cool as a cucumber. She was very friendly and approachable afterwards too: a great runner and a great ambassador for the sport!
Just to let everyone know, the 2015 will be the last Greensand Marathon - until 2017. In 2016, just the Greensand half marathon will take place. The Greensand marathon will take place in odd-numbered years, alternating with The Picnic, which will take place in 2016, and which takes place every two years in even-numbered years.
Organising one hard marathon a year is enough for anyone!
So, if you want to enter the Greensand Marathon and don't want to have to wait two years until the next one, enter in 2015!
Stef, so pleased to hear it wasn't a break, but it had already swelled up nearly to the size of a tennis ball when I saw you on the hill, so it was clearly serious. I think you have a story to tell from yesterday... See you at the Knacker Cracker/Knicker Knacker, I hope!
