Totally agree FF when I’ve volunteered in the past I’ve not claimed for any expenses (they don’t advertise that you can/should) ... this good will which in my case was 3 full tanks of fuel and a fed myself thru the entire event will very quickly disappear if it becomes too commercial ... alongside the increasing cost of the entry fee - MrsG did a very large eye roll when she found out how much my entry was 😱 and that’s money they’ve had in their bank account for over a year now 😥

Hopefully in a passive investment fund 😂 but you’re right - I got my money out as I can’t commit to long term things at the moment.

Fwiw I entered the Sprint. Being committed will make me go and do it rather than knowing I could go try solo but never bothering 'cos life etc.

Plan is to camp night before & this decision Haa been helped by news all competitors in all races need carry full sleep kit & cooking gear as mandatory (FB thread got quite heated). The kit list doesn't yet reflect this but will be updated apparently.

When i did same for Gritstone Grind I had a massive weight penalty vs those bussed to the start so this time I know it'll be more equal.

I'll probably camp out after the finish too unless I arrive at dawn.
