Been a bit absent on here lately but a bit of an extra cheer at mile 17 would be great!

I totally missed you guys last time so I'm not going to ask for much more then a cheer (or Jelly Baby or 2) so I don't waste resources/man power.

British 10k London Run - 8th July 2012

Posted: 07/01/2012 at 16:57
Sorry Sonic but I think you've wasted your money. It is the worst race ever!

They should be paying people to take part rather then ripping them off.

I did it in 2010 & the organisation was just a shambles. There were no start pens & as I didn't want to line up for way in advance I ended up in about the middle. It took me ages to get to the start line after the gun went off & I also spent the first few kms dodging walkers so forget a PB.

The medal was pure shite, it's the one in my collection I hate the most to the point I'm embarrassed for anyone to see.

The cost is a rip off, £50 for a 10k?! You can run an extra 20 miles for £20 CHEAPER with the London marathon. The ballot seems unnecessary as it doesn't fill up that quickly. Bupa 10,000 is half the price of the ballot & the organisation is second to none (plus brilliant medal).

They seem to always run out of water, bear in mind it's a summer race you would think they would plan to stock enough. But no they're greedy so cut costs because at the end of the day it's not them suffering in the heat.

The list goes on about how bad it is, and if you think I'm being harsh I'm just being truthful! If they used the same effort they did on organising the race as they do slagging off the London Marathon people it could be improved, but hey where's the fun in that?!

I do get a little bit frustrated with people asking what's it like, we give the feedback but they still enter anyway!

Sorry, I've been away. Started a new job on Monday & my brain has been overloaded each day, I've been going to bed real early.

I used Kity's survey.

Car insurance for young drivers

Posted: 08/10/2011 at 16:28
I got my renewal through the other day with my current insurer & was pleasantly surprised.

Although I have gone from a 1.6 Astra to a smart car in the last few months with all this '40% increase' since I last renewed, I was expecting it to still cost the same to insure the smart as it did the Astra but it was the cheapest it's ever been.

I don't envy teenagers or the parents of teenagers as it is so expensive to insure nowadays but we all know the statistics when it comes to accidents, it's just a shame people are paying for other people's mistakes before they've even had a chance to (potentially) make their own.

Did you pay at the time of entry?

I got a place & my mag came through last week, but I've also had a few emails saying congrats on getting a place & don't forget to pay for my entry.

LR, or Jokerman as I used to know you - I'm not taking the bait for the arguments you so crave to cause.
