    Ah but Darren, Have you done the race?

    I kid you not...see the 2004 book for the "blackpool ironwork relay" up one side, down the other.

    So you have not done all of them then: perhaps you were busy on April 1.

    But did you see my post about the race.

    It is really there in the 2004 book!
    The "blackpool ironwork relay". Up one side , down t'other
    So Sadly you will never get to do them all! Because that was never repeated...

    Neither was the "canary wharf uphill only..". Which too was advertised..

    On exactly the same day of the year, strangely.

    You are in good company.

    You wont remember this, but "when I was a lad" he said in a croaky voice..Tomorrows world produced special documentaries they showed on (you guessed it) April 1.
    The first was not so bad, showing a revolution in the development of spaghetti trees in asia, all abundant with the crop.

    The next year they had footage of rock worms on mars. (Nobody seemed to question how anyone took a photo of a rock worm on mars, it should be said, but I digress). But because most of the viewing public were talking about it , actually believed it, they decided in the public interest to stop doing such spoofs!!

    I wonder whether the crowds for the "blackpool ironwork relay" are what decided FRA to put a halt to April 1 events!
