    See you there
    I'm in the middle of a big(gish) get fit fast programme & I'm planning to get to The Druid at 18:30, run round the course before registering & running the race.....this is my excuse for a pants run.
    I've just decided I don't trust you anymore.

    I'm planning to do the same but I will be starting around 5.45pm!
    As I haven't done this race before I'll follow your studmarks.

    Re: The Druid

    THere's loads of studmarks up there already on last night's evidence

    Hope these pesky showers go, it's a lovely route!

    Mrs ST will be taking a rare outing on the fells. Last time she ran on the fells, someone gave her a fish at the end. She'll be expecting a druid related momento this time perhaps? I keep telling her that fellrunning isn't like her beloved road running where you get a T shirt, medal or similar just for turning up, but she keeps getting stuff, or worse, winning prizes (first, last and only lady at Alwinton 2 years ago!).

    Any ideas for Druid related things i can get for her, or perhaps we should settle on a pint from the pub?

    Really enjoyed this. First attempt at 5.45pm in 68 minutes.
    Second attempt in the race at 7.30pm in 46.57.
    Saw Fellrunner on first attempt and his back on the second! He won in 44.56 I think.
    Nice to meet Swiss Toni again and his charming wife who made we work very hard!
    Thanks to John Linley and Martin "Welsh Harrier" Cortvriend and all their helpers.

    Excellent race - thanks to all concerned. The Druid is one of our favourite "stopping off" pubs so it was nice to find out what's behind it.

    Great race - thanks to John and Martin

    Enjoyed my bimble round, apart from the 2 toilet stops, in a 4 mile race I ask you! THat prawn curry the night before was a bad idea

    Mrs ST enjoyed it too, possibly because it has at least some road in it.

    GOod to see Fellrunner and Swoop again.

    So how many toilet stops will you need in next weekends bob graham?

    Imagine all the confusion all those new cairns could cause!

    I thought it was a bit slippery going through the woods on the way back...luckily it was that dark you couldn't see what you were wading through

    Good event..glad the rain held off.

    I know BG support teams go cater for every need, but you know him better than I do
