Wokingham logistics

One of the club’s more heavily-subscribed events (and indeed an event which – should we ever get it off the ground – will constitute a key fixture in the Club Championship series) – the Wokingham half marathon – is almost upon us.

In view of Wokingham being in Berkshire and the event being held on Sunday (the day of the week when railway franchises traditionally celebrate the utter loveliness of life by carrying out engineering works), we need to pool our resources and share motorcars.

I wonder, then, if I could possibly ask you to e-mail me if:

  • You have entered the race
  • You require transport
  • You are in a position to offer transport to other members of the club

My suspicion is that more people fall into the second category than into the third.  If you are able to do so, please consider doing your bit for the environment (damaging it, that is) and offering others a lift.

After the race
In previous years, a group of us have enjoyed euphemistically-priced food at a local pub after the race. If you would like to be part of a delegation to the Three Frogs pub, please contact me (by e-mail or using the comments box below) and I will ensure that provision is made for you in my reservation.

Wokingham is located a few kilometres south-east of the Palaeocenic Reading planar fracture. BARKWEA, the Berkshire-based geo-meteorological research unit, has postulated the possibility of a corollary between tectonic activity in the area and the excessive precipitation that the market town frequently experiences in the first – as well as the second – six months of most years. Any family members or special friends intending to come and watch you run on the day would be well advised to bring with them a lightweight travel hat (or similar).

    I am racing and can provide lifts for those who need them. I have room for 3 medium size people or 4 midgets.

      I have seen you guys striding through Barnes you are anything but midgets!
