Grizzly 2005

I spoke to the winner of the womens race last weekend and amazingly she had her entry returned to her because she just missed the closing date. Can't be many races that turn away their current champs. So, if any of you girls out their are feeling 'up for it' there is one less for you to worry about.....

At the same time, it means I know a couple of people who may be interested in an entry if anybody has to miss out for any reason.

See you all there :)

I haven't entered yet, but I'll find out if they've been sent out for you :o)

I remember that. Horizontal rain as we ran across the top of the ridge - lovely :o)

You won't be doing a pb on it :o)

It's a good race. The 1st 3 miles or so are nice and easy to get you going and then there are a couple of hills that would make the Grizzly proud (so you should feel at home). These are followed by a nice scenic run along a ridge looking over the estuary (if you're tall enough to see over the hedges), a nice steep descent to work the knees over and then a 1/2 mile sprint to the finish.
There are always a couple of people (well normally one - me!) who goes off for another lap after the finish as Grizzly or Marathon training.

See you there maybe.

Tough Guy - too costly!

I'll try to type carefully :o)

If you work out how much TG makes - Entry fees are only the start. Car Parking, Spectator costs etc follow.

Work out how much it costs - Errrrm. Maybe Teeshirts. All their own land == nothing. Insurance == You're having a laugh etc etc. The obstacles stay up, year after year.

Then think that the 'charity' is basically Billy Wilsons Farm. Damn those Donkeys must be kept well.

I believe that he organised the original Wolverhampton Marathon, but as Matt implied, I heard that it came to a 'sticky' end!

Make sure that you're comfortable running off road and in mud.

Be prepared to run 28miles (just in case )

Enjoy :)

Just popped out of the Tri forum for a browse. I'll be there for the 6th time this year trying to even the score (so far it's Grizzly 3 - Iain 2).

Heck, I just saw the party pics and was about to sign up when the gf walked in and cracked me around the head.
No point going if she won't let me touch - drat!!!!!

I'll probably be doing it as I'm up to see the family over crimble. Not 100% what is planned as yet though so will have to play it by ear. If I'm there I'll be the one with a big red cross dye'd into my hair (well, it 'was' red, it's closer to orange at the moment though). Should be my last race before the hair has grown long enough to have it cut out.

Se you there (hopefully)

Hells Bells, you lot can talk.

I 'try' my best to keep up with this thread (no that doesn't mean I'm doing it Candy, I just like to see how you're all getting on), but as I only get on the computer every 2 days it takes me longer than the average turbo session to catch up!!!
