I was meant to be running a SOLA leg this year, with a nice team from my university, but I have managed to mess up dates and will actually be back in the UK on the date...
If any keen runners want a nice day out on Saturday 9th of May, please get in contact! I was down to do one of the longer stretches, 14km (there are two of these, but I'm not sure which one I was actually down for). The team is very nice and not at all competitive, so would be totally happy to have anyone do it, regardless of what time you run. I think there'll be a barbecue afterwards as well.
I did it last year, and had a great time - it's a great atmosphere, with what feels like the whole city dressed in running gear with numbers attached to them, and the longer stretches are lovely runs through woodland. (Details here
). I'm gutted to be missing it! Although some time in English pubs will help make up for it, I'm sure...
Please let me know if you're interested, or knows someone who might be.
