Well, @TheWelshWookie and I were hoping to run in the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool half marathon next weekend. But, plans have changed, so we’ll have to pass on it this year.
So, that means that our next run will be as part of the Great British Relay 2014 on 8th June 🙂
The aim is to break the world record for the longest continuous relay around the coast of Britain. Did someone say record attempt? We’re in!
The British coast has been split into 594 stages, and the run is done continuously, 24 hours a day, during June and July 2014.
@TheWelshWookie and I will be running stage 138, from Duror to Strath of Appin Primary School, which is at the very north of Argyll and Bute. Our stage handover is at 18:19, and our stage is 12.5K long.
There are still a few gaps along the way, including immediately before us, so I have no idea how we’re going to get the baton!
We’re going to go for a recce on Saturday, and try to figure out how we’ll get ourselves from the finish to the car; or how we’ll get from the car (if we park it at the finish) to the starting point! I’m sure we’ll figure it out, but with no buses or trains, it’ll be a challenge 😉
We’re really looking forward to being part of such a brilliant event, and if you’re in the UK and haven’t signed up yet, visit the website GBrelay.com
Any suggestions for how to manage the logistics? Have you signed up?
