  • 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 :)

  • That does sound fun! Shame I'm not here I would join you!

  • Curly, it's worth staying in Cambridge to this one. I'm signing up, how could I not? It's my fantasy race! x

  • 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! πŸ˜ƒ I might not get too far though! You up for Cambourne milwalki? Registration opens soon


  • Too right Madge, waiting for the email :)

  • 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!


  • Cheers Madge, I'll take look later :)

  • We're in! That's me and OH........


  • I'm in :)

  • I quite fancy having a go at this, looks a bit different.

  • Sulking now. I wanna play too....

  • Whoo hoo! I've just found out that there is a free app that simulates the race - I can run with you all, even if I'm far away....
