I ran this a couple of years ago - it is a 4 mile off road lap taking in Nomansland Common and Heartwood Forest just outside Wheathampstead. You can run as an individual, a pair or in teams of up to 8 each running as many or few laps as he/she wants.
How about getting a team (or two, or three...) together and seeing how many laps we can do in the full 12 hours? Knowing how good we are at team events I think we would generate a great atmosphere, it would be a really good team building event and give us all a chance to meet, run with and support members we maybe don't normally because they train in different groups. For later laps it may also provide practice at running in the dark...
Close to home, easy to find venue, plenty of parking, the only downside is it is a bit pricey but they are offering us 15% off!
I am more than happy to run a few laps so come on, who else is up for it?
I like the sound of this - would be interested in being part of a team if we could get something organised
i'd be up for this!
I would like to take part in this. I also did it a couple of years ago and it's a really good event. I hope some more of you will get involved too!
Brill - that's one team! Come on boys - where are you? Surely you aren't scared of those St Albans Striders???
Please count me in.
