I don't really care about the prize, it's the principal, I hate being lied to :(

The train station is very close to the start so should be easy enough :-)

I will probably do it again this year.

It's on a Saturday so I could run to Parkrun, do Parkrun, run to station, run to Birmingham... would make a decent long run. Might get train back though ;)

:( to the whole prize situation Mrs J

Is that the going up the steps and bit of road detour of last year?

Decided not to do this in favour of doing my long run Fri and a ParkRun Sat, but post ParkRun will be at the end in the pub supporting the running club :)

The race information make it sound like the same diversion, yes.

Got something to say?
