Many thanks to all the runners, marshals, first aid crew and other helpers. It was an awesome event and I saw 150 smiles at the end of the race. I’ll post the results and more photos and news here later. In the mean time, check out the facebook page and maybe upload some of your memories of the day.
The start list is now on the website. The T shirts have arrived (thank you Eccy for modelling them). The weather forecast is fine and cold so don’t forget to bring warm clothing. We shouldn’t have a problem with ice, but stay safe on the paths just in case. Thank you to all the runners and volunteers and we’ll see you on Sunday!
Course ready, T shirts ready, Marshals ready, Cakes and Bacon Butties planned and the emails with race information due to go out in the next few days.
If you haven’t entered yet, then I urge you to do so before the 2 week limit to ensure that we have a T shirt with your size! If you would like to be a marshal and get a free entry for 2016, then please look at the Marshal Page and let us know. The more marshals, the better the event and we thank you all. Marshals will of course get a bacon butty, cake and T shirt.
With only 3 months to go until the second run-forest-run.co.uk we thought that we should give you a little update on how the woodland is progressing thanks to the great support from last year’s runners.
The 2014 edition was a great success and generated a lot of interest in the woodland. Drivelink training has been holding many training courses in the woodland and you’ll see that there is a lot more light and space as you enter the woods in 2015. We’ve also been busy building a new road across the flooded bog area at the exit from the woods. This means that your times will be at least 10 seconds faster this year!
There are a few photos of the year below. Online entries are open and we’re looking for marshals. If you are a marshal on the day, then you get free entry in 2016. If you were a marshal last year and want to enter then please use your discount code. If you can find it then contact us via the website.
This year’s race looks like it will be bigger and better than last year’s so get training, find some mates to join you, challenge a friendly team and we’ll see you in November!
Happy New Year everyone. Thanks to all the runners and marshals from last year’s event. You can read the reviews on Runner’s World. Entries are now open for the 2015 event on the 22nd November 2015. If you sign up to your newsletter then you’ll get a special 10% discount off entries until June 2015. What’s not to like?
