Oscar - great news you got that number.☺️

Unfortunately I'm a DNS. I went over on my ankle 3 weeks ago, thought it was OK but only got as far as 7 miles into my marathon on Sunday before I was in pain and what was more painful was realising I wouldn't make the start line at DD. The cutoffs are difficult for me but I was planning to have a go even if I had to pull up at 20 miles.

Hope you have a great run.

Sorry to hear that, Shades.

Best of luck, Oscar! (You can tell me all about it on 25 June!)

Synge - you not running DD then?

I saw RP at Easter, he was running well and still on target for his 100th at DD.

No - it clashes with a "going on holiday" diary commitment. If it had been a half marathon, I think I would have got a pass to run it, but when I disclosed my likely finish time and return home time, it quickly moved from "Tentative" to "Not happening"! :(

But I've got one or two other nice events in June and July. :)

Sorry to hear that, Shades. That's bad luck.

Synge, you're at Giant's Head? Excellent 😀

A clubmate is doing this - her first ultra - she's Alison from Almost Athletes (purple club vest). She's trained really well for it and is an all-round lovely person - if you see her give her a shout of encouragement please!

And good luck Oscar!
