Mrs Jigs (Luverlylegs)
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?

Just entered this for my 2nd year. Hopefully the weather will be just as nice on the day, the swans...
