£19 sub that gets you race entry for £5 to races that seem to cost about £20 normally. Unless I am missing something it would seem that your sub pays for itself provided you do more than one race with the discount.

Anyone done Malc's Gin Pit double, then.

I choose not to drive if I can at all help it. I CAN get there by public transport on the morning of the race on Saturday. What would be the best thing to do for the Saturday night? Manchester? Wigan? Somewhere else?

I don't know the price, but Chrisull's club do the Cornish Marathon. That's brilliant, and not expensive.

@becca7 I don't think the races are £5 if you join that is abit cheap! That would be the best value ever. I think the £19 a year is just for the mailing list and to book travel and stuff through them. I did try to check out a £5 race and it wouldn't let me.
