Ørsted GY10K Tuesdays Race Directors Ramblings

July 17, 2018

Hi all
 
Tuesdays Race Directors Ramblings
 
Hope you are starting to get excited about Sunday?
 
No run for us today, early start in the office dealing with another flood of e mails and phone calls. Classic of the day asking if we can change the start time to 9am…TRUE!….its actually 10 am if you didn’t know!
 
 
 
PLEASE HELP
 
We are delighted to announce that we are supporting the local Grimsby branch of Operation Christmas child shoe box appeal
 
On race day their team will be present outside of Great Grimsby Town Hall, where you will gather before the start of the race. We ask that you consider bringing an item from the following list to donate to the fabulous charity, who support thousands of children who live in destitute, disaster areas and war zones.
Pens, pencils, crayons, soap, flannels, toothpaste, toothbrushes, small cars, balls and dolls.
Your small gift of kindness will go a long way to help a child very much in need.
 
Wave Starts
 
You will note from your runner number that you are either in wave 1 or wave 2. When you arrive in the town please gather in the streets around Great Grinsby Town Hall. Wave 1 runners will be asked to walk down to the start line after the fun run sets off at 930. Wave 2 runners are to remain in the Town Hall area until after wave 1 has departed. You will then be invited to walk the short distance to the start line.
 
Please note….you will not be able to change waves for any reason, so please do not bother our volunteers who are managing the wave start for us…thanks
 
Baggage Buses
 
Buses will be marked up wave 1 or wave 2….blimey that’s easy!
 
These will leave from the vicinity of the Town Hall with or without your bag at 920 prompt. If you miss the bus it is only 10km to the finish line carrying your Gucci handbag!
 
Post race, the buses will be located in the road that circles the park. Please make sure you collect your bags as soon as you have finished and before you go for your greasy hamburger, ice cream and fries!
 
Race Hoodies and mugs
 
The special offer to pre-order and collect on race day ends on Wednesday evening. If you are thinking about reserving yourself one, then please do so >>> https://resultsbase.net/event/4268
 
 
Busy day today finalising deployments for 450 volunteers, meeting the lead car company, checking our control room and a final check of the finish area in the park.
 
Don’t forget, arrive early, lift share and make sure you follow yesterdays advice about running in the heat
 
cheers
