I had to google it too Stander!

My extensive research reveals it be east of Clacton. Too far for me I fear

East?
Surely if you go east, you drown?

I'm pretty certain Holland is East of Clacton as well, which ferry service would we need to get?

I'm not trying to imply that you lot couldn't organise a heart attack in a pie factory but we do appear to be heading towards a Cambridge mile on 8th September:

I am aware that El Greppo doesn't approve of this venue though, on the grounds that it's too easy to shelter when the hail starts.

Maintained by SouthendAl
I never seem to be able to make the Fetch Miles, too far, wrong date, day before a target race, etc.

So I'd better organise my own!

General idea at the moment is a mile, plus extras, sometime in the summer (June or July?), in Southend at Garons Park.

Who's up for it, any particular dates to avoid? Join the group and let's race!
