The latter stages of the race hot soup was being offered which was a welcome change.

I finished in the dark last year.   As long as you have a good head torch then you'll be fine.  There were snap lights at certain points so made it a bit easier in know which direction to head.

The one thing that makes me smile is the G4S chap.   He's about 70 and a stiff breeze would blow him over & he always looks bored but is the only pleasant one there.

Super, thanks for the info.  

Each time i go to the Fat Amanda (Job center bod) she makes me sign on an electronic pad.  Is this mandatory?

Not been on for a while, was made redundant so furiously doing the job hunting game. Sadly had to sign on which is a first for me in the 28 years of working.  

Visiting the job centre is the most unpleasant thing ever, I'd prefer to nail my head to a table than go there.  i have a few questions so those in the know please help

What are the rules about filling in your Activity History?   Is this mean to be a daily thing?

What if there are no jobs to apply for?   What do i put?

Is it compulsory to fill that bit in?

Last one, why do folk who work there treat folks like me with such disdane and contempt? 

Many thanks in advance for your advise

It is very good first ultra to do & well organised.  Friendly marshalls and the food was good.  Definately worth entering.

If this advert is for Buff Gym Boys why is this being advertised on here?   I thought this was a running forum?

Seriously considering the CTS Dorset towards the end of the year.  At least it will be local to me so that is a plus.
