Thanks for joining! This blog post will be updated throughout the day with time stamps showing you the most recent entry. C’mon Sandhurst Joggers!!!
6:45am Oh my god it’s early. Why am I agreeing to do this? Stupid hobby. Good morning by the way. Thanks for joining.
7:00am here we go! Katy’s forgotten her number so it’s going well so far. In on a different bus to MFS all day – early win.
7:05am leaving on time is going well
7:something am still not left yet
7:27 and we’re off!
8:23 am stage 1 is at Hampton court. Wilkie and Brendan flying the SJ flag. Few nervous runners about.
9:22 am We’ve just dropped off most of the ‘odd bus’ to marshal. A bit lonely on here now but off to the start of my leg and despite what Patrick says I will not be live updating whilst running. Not actually starting until 10:40 so a bit more time to sleep. How is everyone else doing?
12:18 pm and the first yellow winners vest for the club goes to me!!! First lady! Only because a serpentine went wrong – really wrong because they still haven’t finished. Oops – the value of recceing your route beforehand!
13:49 currently I’m at a Marshal point. Just saw Dave B and Richard go through looking good. My legs hurt. Battery at 33% it’s pretty warm out here – need a pub!
14:41 we’ve just picked up Dave and Richard. Dave beat richard. They’re both pretty exhausted now. And talking about running lots. In more relatable news I’ve just got a cup of tea!
15:43 only 3% battery! But I have a drink! SJ storming round. Good w
20:48 well the battery died! End of day 1 and everyone is safe. Many people got lost but no one seriously and everyone is looking forward to dinner.
End of Day 1 scores:
Old Men’s Team: 5th
Team A: 9th
Old Men’s Team currently wining the vets competition (yay)
Stage winners: me and Jenny. C’mon the girls! Right off for food!
