Hello everybody….. it’s that time again

and-so-it-beginsHello everybody….. it’s that time again.  Our committee is formed and we are now actively planning the 2017 event and we have news to share with you.

Firstly, the event date has been confirmed as Saturday, 29th & Sunday, 30th April 2017.  This year, this falls on the May Bank Holiday, which will enable all of us, entrants and staff to have a rest day on Monday, 1st May.

We are delighted to confirm that once again, Patagonia have agreed to be our main sponsor, which hopefully means that Worn Wear will be in attendance to provide “running repairs” (sorry, we couldn’t resist), and breathe new life into worn but well-loved garments.

We are looking into providing commemorative clothing for all entrants on the event; however it is probable that we would need to make a small increase in entrance fee to cover additional costs.  Do you think this is something you would be interested in receiving as part of your event experience?  We’d love to hear your views and suggestions.  Please vote in the poll below or feel free to email us or contact us via this site or our Facebook page.

Those of you who are veterans of the event will know the struggle we have with car parking every year.  We are currently looking into options to provide better parking for the event and will hopefully have an update on this in future news items.

Finally, just to remind you, online entries will open on the 1st January 2017, somewhat scarily this is only just over 4 weeks away!!!!
