With so many different training groups in the club now, it's hard to keep track of who's doing what, when, and what they're hoping to get out of it.
So what do you have lined up? Let your fellow members know here. You never know, you might have BAC company there on the day and didn't realise ...

Filthy weekend show me the muddy girls 4th August. 10K or 5K. About 10 of us going, if I try to list everyone I'll forget someone. Somehow me and Jacqui have been talked into doing this amongst others, two of the biggest confirmed mud avoiders on the planet. How???! Thankfully there is prosecco on the finish line. There had better be a lot of it! ;-)
One more I forgot. Giant's Head Marathon/Sydling Hill 10K 24th June. More Dorchester nuttiness involving copious amounts of cider and cake
Cambridge Half tomorrow

Ian and I are doing Oakley 20 this weekend. Ian will wiz round and I'll just pootle along.
I'll be huffing and puffing at Oakley trying to catch you up Juliet. At least I should spot you at the start line! It will be even more difficult to get in under 4 hours this year as I will have had a very late night beforehand.
Oh well, that will be good training for the following weekend at the South Downs Way 50 on 8 April. (Don't bother following me on the Centurion website for that one as my training plan this year has been overtaken by unexpected events yet again and I may not make the 13 hour cutoff. Sigh.) I'm not publishing my other race entries until I'm more confident I might finish one!
PS London Marathon not on the above list? I'm not in it this year, so might be free to support.
