Wow! Fame at last, after a brief conversation with Manx Radio, my soft Southern tones were heard over the airwaves on Mandate last Friday!
For those without a 'translate' button on their radio, it was a good bit of advertising for our little community event.....
We also welcomed a few first timers this week.
We saw the introduction of our new 'finish tokens'.....hoorah, after losing some of our essential kit to finish token magpies we decided to replace them all....including the necessary sought after token #1 - brilliantly modelled below by Mr Brian Butler (is this the only chance he will get to hold the famed #1???) and won this week by a brilliant finish by Jon Mc Gowan
We also met this little lovely first timer....Georgina Edwin-Reed, ably supported by Mum, Vickie
128 people ran this week, where last year we had 46 intrepid participants - show how far we have come in 2yrs
A timely reminder that its birthday week next week.
So please come along and see if we can break through the 140 barrier or beyond.
Please arrive by 8:45 as we plan to do our awards presentation before the start - so please get your votes in by PM to our Facebook page.
There will be cake......and please do dress up if the 'fancy dress' takes you lol
And don't forget your barcode
