Monday’s Race Directors Ramblings

Message of the Day
Whilst planning your route to the race, please be mindful that the course itself will start to be closed down to all traffic from 8.30am. Park and stride as well as the town centre car parks are good options. If you live in Grimsby why not consider asking someone to drop you off.
Recent Queries
We have been asked if you need to register on race day. The simple answer is no, just turn up and enjoy yourselves. Don’t forget to put your details on the back of your race number.
We have been asked by ‘new’ runners when do you receive your fabulous race tee shirt. The answer as you may guess is after you have ran 10km and not before. Well it will actually be 10km and 90m before your get your hands on one!
Oh, and please collect the tee shirt size which is on your running number as this is what you ordered. Don’t ask the volunteers to change as we want everyone to have what they ordered, no matter where they finish. Once the last runner is back, we may be able to accommodate an exchange, but be patient…thanks

Update from the race directors
Well top news is that we managed to go out for a run. It really was a bit of an offering, but trainers were on, feet were moving(slowly) but we did it!…so did the dog but she wasn’t happy.
Another day full of meetings, correspondence and planning, planning, planning.
We are delighted that we will have a team out from early morning doing some live time social media on Twitter and Face Book. Let friends/family know to tune into us for some great footage as the event unfolds.
Family Fun Run
We will be closing down advanced on-line entries on Tuesday evening. Still time to enter the 2km run, great medal and sweets for all. Starts and finishes in same place as the 10k. FUN RUN  If there are any places left we will take on the day entries for the fun run.
That’s it for now, loads still to do but we are on it!
