Outlaw bike feedstation 24th July 2016

Posted: 25/07/2016 at 12:46

Just a quick word to Barlos to thank you and Schmunks for great organisation and morale boosting on the feed station - Anders and I had a really super weekend, and enjoyed every moment on the feed station. We felt like yourself and OSB really looked after the volunteers - free camping,  bacon butties / drinks, gifts, T-shirt and then free food afterwards as well. Blimey!

The finishing chute at the end was just fab - great atmosphere.

Anders is inspired, and completely thrilled with his bottle opener keyring 

am I inspired? Shall I dust off my bike? well maybe - I'll just go for a run first ...

I've got the green light from the physio so I'm in, but now undecided between the merits of FIRST vs Hansons training plans, so might morph the two ...

I did the first half last year but was under-trained and had to stop at the bridge. I was comparing it to the last version which had a lot of problems, including being under length!

I enjoyed the first half, but I live there, so I enjoyed running on my door step. Locally there was a good buzz about the race, so the hope among running clubs is that it'll get better each year ...

When I get the green light from my physio I'm hoping to have a crack at this - those who did it last year said it was a good race

Anyone else game?

Golden Fleece, South Cave, East Yorks - its a local scout group organised event in March - for walkers, but lots of runners do it - great cake along the way and a hot meal at the end. The entry isn't much at all ...

London to Brighton 100k race

I found the terrain extremely challenging - climbing over fallen trees/roots in the middle of the night. I'd trained off-road, but some of this was really hard, for a city girl like me, anyway.

The signage was brilliant, however - with glowsticks everywhere at night time, and loads where there were difficult hazards to get around. 

My son did the last 5k with me, no problems ... even when it went onto the race course at the end.

Re: train stations - at one point the route actually went through one, although it wasn't far from the end by that point, so you'd probably want to keep going!
