I'm thinking about doing this, looks fun and a real twist on a normal race :)

That does sound fun! How does it work? You get your finish time when the car passes you?

The finish line is the chase car, when it catches you, you're out. The car starts 30 mins after the race starts. The races are being run all around the world at the same time so the last person caught is the world "Winner".

And theres Bling :)

Surely in some countries it will be in the middle of the night???

I believe so, the brouchure on my desk states that all races will start at exactly the same time (35 Locations).

Maybe one in Cheese Eating Surrenderville :)

Baldy has already booked our return in March. We normally come back for a few weeks at the end of May, but the beginning of May is just too early Have fun!

I fantasised about doing this race this year. In fact it became known as 'the race we don't mention' because I went on about it so much. I so want to do it this year. :) :)

I had hoped to do this one next year, but am already booked for that weekend :-( So, 2017, maybe !

Ooo, what a great idea! I am tempted. Though I do think it sounds like a recipe for exhaustion-related collapse.

Very, very tempted! 😃 I might not get too far though! You up for Cambourne milwalki? Registration opens soon

Cambourne 10k is open, just in case you didn't know already, I didn't get an email, it seems they are managing it slightly differently, had to re register. But me and OH are in!
