Err, I sent mine to John...since he lives just a few miles away. I wondered if I should have hand delivered it! I think NickF sent one too?

What should I do...send another?

No. Turn up on the day. I wonder why it's not turned up :/

I'll be asking you to fill out another one, so please do turn up early! You'll also need to telephone John crayton to let him know you're coming :)

Hmmm, according to Google Maps, from my house to the start point is 13.5 miles, so I can get there no problem. I won't be able to do the run as I have to get back home to finish some decorating before the next baby arrives!

Whats the earliest people will be arriving with generators? I've got one but it won't fit in my car.

My range is at least 25 miles, but I don't know how much more. To be safe I will need a charge at Clapham in order to get home again!

Hi Christopher,

I'll be arriving around 8am with a 1KW generator. I suspect other generators will arrive between 8:30 and 9:00.

Last year we were able to charge at the pub. I'll see if I can arrange something similar for this year.

I've also asked the pub if they can give us recharging before the start. John Crayton will also be bringing his generator, so recharging should be no problem.

I think I might have got lost in the 'last post on the previous page' vortex, can I bump this up, keen to know when you will be a Hand Cross?

I wont be waiting with a stop-watch but any guide would be useful.


Hi Nikki, I sent you an entry for my Prius, did you get it?
I hope it was clear from my form that I will be joining you when you stop for refreshment at Hand Cross, do you have any idea what time you will be there?

Hi mark. Yup, thanks for that. I expect we'll be at the lunch stop between 11:30 and 2pm. See you there!

I dunno all these folk getting all the media attention I thought I better get some myself :lol:

SO, there is a small possibility that BBC London may be down to film the event on Sunday 8)

They are aware of it as I was contacted by a member of the BBC regrading another thing and I happened to mention the L to B run on Sunday, so he has passed the info on to BBC London News from what I gather :wink:

Looks like its going to be a bit windy, and in the wrong direction too!

28mph winds from the south should make things more challanging :shock:
