Many thanks - it was brutal out there - glad I'm home cosy and dry, running kit in washing machine, trainers soaking in bath (after I've soaked self).  Didn't see Rory, but he would have been home and dry - in every sense - before me.

Wave of friendly paw.  I am only doing Saturday for various reasons - although I must say I glad I will not have to trek back on Sundays through the same muddy horrors that I will be encountering on Saturday.

Help! Blister on ball of feet and 10k race tomorrow!

Rather disagree with a) as blister on a pressure spot and will just get larger and more painful with every step.  Would actually pop it in at least 2 places - taking all sterile precautions, press gently to expel fluid, allow to dry, then apply Compeed.

Really hardcore would be to get large needle with quite thick thread, soak in surgical spirit, then thread through blister, press to expel fluid then cut off excess thread to allow a bit to protrude either end to allow for continuous drainage, then apply Compeed.  However realise this might not be practicable at this stage. 

Go for the 10K anyway and all the best!!

Also - no disrespect - Mo is not exactly known as an ultra runner.

None of above - not that they are not brilliant, but as Rob says - not for first timers.

Pinning race number

Posted: 26/01/2016 at 18:30

As I wear a bum bag I put my race number in one of those A4 plastic document pockets with holes topmost, tape down flappy bit at back then put pins through available holes and attach to bag.  Sounds more complicated than it is.

Also not always newbieish to put race number at back - preferred option of many ultra runners to pin numbers to rucksack.

Errm - what entry fee?  Parkruns are free so if you don't like it don't go and while you're about take no medication and undergo no surgical procedures.  You can also sign up for drug testing yourself, although as recent events show you might end up dead.

London to Brighton 100k race

Posted: 22/01/2016 at 12:41

The route is through open road and country so their are no restrictions against non participants joining in at certain points.  Friends and family are positively encouraged at the CPs.  You will be able to download a route map nearer the event that will show where the accessible sections are.
