Thursday Race Director Ramblings

Thursday’s Race Directors Ramblings

It is inevitable with race organisation that we have to do some last minute problem-solving. We however did not plan for well over 200 race packs failing to arrive with our runners, some 9 days after posting. Experience tells us to work on 1%, or around 30.

We are on it,(sleep is for wimps) we have a solution in place and wont let this detract from 12 months hard work from many people to make this a great race for you all. Apologies to those of you affected. Views about failings in the postal service will be kept personal!

What else is happening?

Despite this, here is a quick snap shot of recent activity

  • All zone managers now briefed
  • Finalised the plans for on-course entertainment
  • Final course drive with lead car marshal
  • Vans collected ready for hard work on Saturday/Sunday…would rather run 10k!
  • Water station managers briefed
  • Sponge station manager briefed

Despite the set-back, everything is going really well, lots still to do, but with well over 350 people giving their time for you up it will be a tremendous day.

3 more sleeps!!

Cheers Nicola and Neil
