Excellent and well organised event. Cold with a strong headwind, particulary in the first half meant it was a hard run for those runners, second half was better if muddy. Congratulations to the full-distance runners; Gita, Phil, Mike and Heather (who had a fantastic race and finished third woman!) and to all the relay runners. Also to the marshals including Ann, Angela and Elly and to Stephen, John, Jo, Natalie and Myv for coming out on such a dreich day to support – much appreciated. Finally, thanks to Mia and Megan for the lovely, cheery, company on the second half. Back to the Safari Lounge for a few drinks afters which was nice.

Elly’s magnificent organisational skills at getting everyone there and back:

OK – proposed suggestion:

3 cars from Edinburgh to Dunbar for full race

  • 1st leg
    1. Jen Porch with Adam & Vicky (West Edinburgh)
    2. Tracy-ann with Mike, Heather & Gordon (Leith/Meadowbank)
    3. Wendy with Phil, Andrew and Krista (Portobello ish)
  • 2nd leg
    Heike with Murdo, Ines and Mia (Leith / Meadowbank /Portobello)
    2. Sorrel with Megan and Julie (Southside)
    3. Louise & Margaret (West?) If Louise’s car and Sorrel’s car both go direct to Dunbar and Sorrel takes all 5 to North Berwick – Vicky can then bring Sorrel’s car to Dunbar with 4 others. (Don’t forget the spare key)!

I plan to come to North Berwick after my marshal spot and will pick up the other 4 relay runners.

Jim – will Sandra be meeting you at North Berwick or Dunbar? Should be room in either car anyway and I think Jo is going to be roaming around heckling (sorry cheering everyone on!)

Ann is also going to be out and about marshalling.

  • Dunbar to Edinburgh
    Louise & Maggie (and if anyone else needs a quick get away)
    Wendy – Andrew, Krista, Mia
    Tracy-ann – Heather, Ines & Gordon
    Sorrel – Megan, Julie, Mike
    Eleanor -Phil, Heike (back to NB) & Murdo
    Jen – Vicky, Adam

I think that accounts for everyone to get a lift back but we can shuffle around depending who is heading – just make sure you have at least 3 or 4 in your car (please)
Will leave everyone to sort out pick up’s and timings for leaving – Registration opens at 7am and buses leave at 8am from Dunbar. First relay runner expected at North Berwick at 10.40am.

Depending on where I need to be, I plan to come and see you all start at 9am.
Good luck and just hope the weather is kind to us all.
Gita and Sarah (Jo’s sister) are also doing it so another two to cheer on.
Thoughts / feedback welcome. 😊
