Things you want to say but can't

Dear council jobsworth - what you said illogical, irrational and just plan stupid - in fact a big a load of rubbish as contained in the tip of which you are in charge.  May you be ground down by your grinders, swept up by your sweepers, incinerated in your incinerator and with a bit of luck recycled as a something rather more useful - a dollop of horse shit for preference.

Slow or not shouldn't really be the point.  The organisers should provide enough for all.  They charge the same for walkers (for whom the original event was intended) as runners.   As for the weather - I might have missed the sausage rolls but at least I caught the rain.

Waves back - will probably just do one day as I'm having  major building work done which will last well into next year so only have weekends to straighten out mess and catch up on sleep (they arrive quite early).

JC - I know what a nasty piece of work you are from personal experience - hope others find out soon.

Although this is compulsory for a lot of ultras and sensible advice, in the case of this event you can probably get away with a lot less.  It's 30 miles each day in early May and even Bear manages to waddle to the end in daylight on day 1 - day 2 starts even earlier so the headtorch is not cumpulsory, although a small torch is advisable as you might need it if you need to get to get up in the night and you may as well carry it with you..  At that time of year a light waterproof/windproof jacket should suffice, although buffs are always useful, ditto space blanket.  The route passes along or near roads at fairly frequent stages and Being a Bank Holiday weekend there are usually quite a lot of people around so it is unlikely you will find yourself stranded for long.  The only thing Neil insists on for this event is a fully charged mobile phone to be kept switched on.  One item that can be useful is an old fashioned compass so at least you can tell if you are heading in the right general direction if your gps fails for any reason.

It is a lovely event - enjoy!

Race to the Kings

I've signed up.  Hope the travelling arrangements to start won't be too difficult.  Race to the Stones was a bit of a problem for quite a few due to this.
