It was only £17 if I got in now so rushed about to sign up as quick as I could.
When reading over the details I noticed a great concept about the race (other than it being about half an hour from my house!) you get to pick your distance.....for the same entry fee!
That`s right, its the same price for either a 12 mile, 18 mile, marathon or 50k ultra!!
Needless to say, I`m in!!
I figured it would also be a good way to kick my training into gear as I start to ramp up for Tooting 24hr in September.
I got my conformation email and joined the Facebook group so I could keep up with the latest news. This is also where they threw in another strange thing. You pick your own number!!!!!
They give you a bracket to choose from according to the distance you have picked as below...
ULTRA 50k - 1 to 300
MARATHON - 301 to 600
18 MILES - 601 to 800
12 MILES - 801 to 1000
Great idea huh?!
Naturally I picked number 13 stating that I like to live on the edge! ;)
Lets hope that one doesn't come back to bite me in the ass!
(click me) this takes you to the Runners World entry form, you know you want to! ;)
Back to training!!
