Its ok saying all these thing on a forum about other peoples efforts to put races on so people can run if they want. YOU want to try it sometime as you seem to know a lot about the rules and regs of putting a race together so step up to the plate I for one will enter. So put up or shut up or just hide behind your runners world name at least myself and steve come on here as ourself so if you wish to see all the number come and have a look on sunday all the best Alan Taylor Co-organiser of the Inskip Half Marathon.
How satisfying to hear Stephen’s somewhat illogical old views recycled using your own unique grammatical style. For the record my right to comment on this or any other message board without necessarily being a race organiser is called freedom of speech. As for hiding behind a runners world name is concerned then, as far as I can see, that is a widespread practise on this board. Furthermore, it seems to be the chosen method for several people who have supported you on this thread. Presumably you disapprove of them too. Is there also an element of hypocrisy here given that you post on your club’s message board under a name other than Alan Taylor?
Any road up, let’s get back to the point. What about some answers to my questions? What is the UK:A license number for the Inskip race? What is your affiliated member number? Am I right to presume that you have obtained one and haven’t been tempted to use one belonging to anyone else?
When you see Stephen can you remind him that he still not has told us what the license number was that he claimed he had for the Boxing day 10k in Leyland? Or whether he used the Red Rose course as measured in February 2011 by Brian.
For the time being I think we should keep our relationship as it stands. Rest assured though that I will continue to post on this board whenever I think that anyone is taking liberties when organising races.
