    Coronavirus

    The countries that are banned are on the 'red list' in the UK, so we've probably pissed off China. They've had to rename the variants. India had no problem with the Kent/UK variant, the South African or the Brazilian variant being named as such but kicked up merry hell when it came to calling out the Indian variant. So now they're called Oscar, Tango, Juliet Bravo, Omega, Gamma or something. 😄
  2. Bit hard to tell. Cotswolds isn't the West Country at all and a lot of it can be 'posh rural' but Chaddlington is very close the the eastern side of Gloucestershire ( which still isn't proper west country is you're from Somerset!), so it's kind of on the divide between east and west. Where I live (Winchester in Hampshire) is similar but we are also further south and a little bit further west. One thing I've noticed here is that accents can change dramatically, even if you were born here, depending on the upbringing you've had. People in Winchester can sound very 'home counties posh' o
  3. It is very good. I liked the sheep market episode "It's hardly Mexico" 🤣
  4. Thanks Rob, appreciate that mate. My best so far is 88kms at Race to the King in 2019 (which was the course distance). I hope I have the mental fortitude for 100 miles, just got to make sure the body is working. Next caper is 'Endure24' on Jul 23rs. I've entered as a solo but will see how the day goes, we've hired a motorhome for it. https://endure24.co.uk/ The gold std for a solo is to clock 100 miles, can't see that happening for me but hopefull a fun weekend.
  5. How did you go mate, or is it this Sunday?
  6. Cheers Mick, I know logically, there will be loads of positives, just need to get past the mental disappointment at the moment but I know it won't last long. 👍
  7. Looking at the numbers, there were 133 DNFs out of 442 starters.
  8. Fingers crossed for you Prince 👍
  9. Yes mate, sorry to say a DNF for me 😢. I had two injuries in the recent prep for this race. At Easter a rear of quad/back of knee injury and more recently some horrible plantar faciatis in my left heel. I though, if anything, one of these two things could end my race but turns out it was something different again. I started well enough, taking it easy, ran with a friend from TTUK but had only met him f2f that morning. We had a pact to both go our own pace and once that didn't match, we would split. (he's a multiple UTMBer). So we had a 90 min window to start but you still get the same

    The campaign might be good but the compliance is France isn't that great compared to other Euro nations.

    Good work. Is the settlement likely in a month Bored, or will you have to go through this again? Reason I'm asking is it might be good to start thing about the ongoing support now, so it can kick in when the site is handed over?
  12. had my 2nd about a month ago, both Pfizer.
  13. Thanks All, IFoz, I had not heard of the 1664 Challenge but looked it up. Ver similar route except my SDW100 starts at Metterly Bowl, which is about 8km into the SDW. Reason for this is parking etc, so we run a 8km loop of the Bowl (which is like a giant private park) before hitting SDW. After that, it looks like the only difference is the 1664 finishes at Beachy Head via 7 Sisters (the classic white cliffs and red and white striped lighthouse) but SDW100 finishes in Eastbourne via Jevington. I think that makes 1664 a few km longer than mine but the vast majority is the same.
