Alan will always be the bacon boat man to me, often found 11ish miles into the Centurion NDW50/100 handing out free bacon baps. Mmmmmm, bacon....

McGoohan, if you are in that area check out the wednesday night Headtorch runs group on FB. Allan organises free, guided, nighttime trail runs to get people used to it.

Oum - He has moved the boat I think now, least I seem to remember him saying he wouldn't be doing bacon this year... I only know him through events in Belgium.

I think he moves it fairly regularly Sam - I've seen him supporting GUCR from the boat on twitter - he's a legend :)

That was bloody hard (the fun may be type 2/borderline type 3).

Went to bed a few hours ago, but couldn't sleep - night races they destroy me, and my bodily clock.
