Just a quick one to say entry fees are horrendous aren't they, it's all becoming very popular now and prices are going up and up
Last year I made a decision to stay away from big sponsored events and keep to little ones where the money went straight to a charity or a community, the fees are lower and the experience is often more fun. Hill racing (fell racing doon sooth!) in Scotland is often only a couple of quid to enter and you get a bowl of soup after - haven't done any yet but definitely on the list for this year.
Not sure what your September plans are but if you fancy a fabulous race in utterly jaw dropping scenery, with a tiny entry fee that goes straight to the community and everyone turns out to help, check out the Applecross duathlon. I did it last year, £6 :eek: to enter which you more than get back in tea and cake after. Entries open on june 1st I think, it's always massively oversubscribed so be quick (on the entry front anyway, you can be slow on the day!). And you get piped over the finishing line :j
Best of luck with your training! Which watch did you get as I'm thinking about getting one too :eek:
