Yes, they will take your bag from Avebury to Stonehenge.

Goldbeetle. Thanks for the reply. One loop sounds excellent. Will enter soon.

Hi Goldbeetle. Very interested in this. As you are involved in the admin. Is the route one loop or a number of laps to allow for the marathon and half? Anything else you can tell us? I note the "very, very" hilly! Is it on chalk tracks, across fields or both? Thanks.

Daniel. As a hopeful sub 10 hours finisher I am not well placed to give you advice. But I will be watching the weather. I will certainly have a back pack if only so I can stash some clothing as I am sure the jacket, gloves and hat might be on and off during the day. I never run with a hand held bottle of water, to me a back pack seems easier. Also I got tennis elbow a couple of years ago due to holding a dog leash during most of my training runs!

Druid Challenge 2013

Just wanted to add to the positive comments already on this thread. The event was a challenge for lots of reasons, Friday afternoon was hard work in the driving rain and mud. But the XNRG team really worked hard and were so welcoming, I would recommend one of their events to anyone. Now seriously thinking about Round the Island next June.

Daniel. I will be doing the same, parking at Oxford, getting the train back. I have not done this race, but the logistics seem to tie up. My only concern (which you will not have) is to finish before the last train from Henley!

Exe to Axe 20 miler

We obviously all have different reasons to run. To me this is one of the best races in all of Southern England, if not further afield. The route with good weather is stunning. It is a better route than the Grizzly as it is all on the coast.

Having said that I like the fact that it is so low key and easy to enter. So if a lack of medals and t shirts keeps the crowds away thats fine by me. Just stand near Branscombe, look west and tell anyone who will listen "I ran from all the way over there". That is enough bragging rights for me.

Taxi driver is right the best views are on your way back. You always know where the white horse is as there is a now unused cement works chimney helpful just in front of it! The last few miles are overall downhill which is another bonus.

Late November is not the best time to see the Wiltshire counrtyside, but a bit of sun on the day should make it a pleasant one. Hope the training goes well Jindalee.
