Run2The80's

Image
Ok then Run2the80's has been launched. The start point has still not been confirmed yet but will be east coast(watch this space). If you are interested and want more info as it comes in email myself at davidlong3546@yahoo.co.uk or just sign up as a follower at the bottom of this page.
Price is £20 per team, this goes towards the trophy and cost of envelopes etc (no profit made here) plus your hotels. Last June's "Run2Datsun" worked out at £65 per room per night, so should be in that region. Also we try and stop in nice places not in the middle of a business park (last hotels were Babbacombe Devon, Newquay Cornwall and Matlock Bath Derbyshire). This is a sort of mini tour of the best of the UK.
Once I have numbers I can then find hotels large enough to accomodate us.

Run2the80's

Image
Dust off your leg warmers, dig out your Adam Ant cassettes and brush that "mullet" we're going on a journey back to the 1980's for this one. Run2 the 80's will be a 2 day event in early June next year (date tbc later).

Watch this space for further developments.

Peak District Madness

Image
Once again BIG thanks to those who participated (plus a also those through unfortunate circumstances could only make the end venue). We all met bright and early at the McDonalds at Bassets Pole for breakfast. It was here that the "Shiney Shiney" (trophy) was unveiled. All of a sudden the "atmos" changed from friendly banter to something more sinister amongst the teams..... We were joined by a new team "Shocking Blue"(Roy and Martin) in a rather BLUE Vauxhall Astra VXR. Also joining us for the start only was Mr and Mrs Tangoman aka Paul and Jenny in an equally ORANGE Nissan 350Z (thank you for turning up and hope to see you on the next Run2). The next thing to do was to hand out the packs but with a strange bottle marked up "Peckham Spring".....???? One final group picture and it was to the cars. First stop was the Little Thief er I mean Chef on the A38 heading towards Burton, behind this the teams found a canal marina where the next clue/number…

Run2 the Hills

Image
Run2 the Hills has now been launched....4th September 2010.
Rules same as before but this will be a 1 day event and will start in the Midlands (somewhere... watch this space). The cost will be £20 per team entrance fee plus I will be negotiating a competitive price on a hotel. The hotel is optional but is worth it as you will meet up with the other "Runners" and recount heroic deeds performed during the day (or something like that) over a few drinks.
I know the title "Run2the Hills" is the same as the Iron Maiden track but all Maiden clothing on the day will be encouraged but is not the rule, it is just for fun and a good way of sponsoring a charity of your choice (also not the rule).

For further infomation or you want to enter this run email me @ davidlong3546@yahoo.co.uk

Day 2

Image
Day 2 begins with breakfast at the Exmouth View Hotel, envelopes are handed out and as they are opened and the shopping lists are mulled over I just remembered what I put in them. FACE PAINTING!!! was the subject for breakfast, some filled with dread others strangely excited by the idea of turning up as Spider man or a Hamster!?. All teams set off at approx 9.30am heading for Kingswear, Devon. The first clue took them to the Dartmouth lower ferry, as we took the higher we got to Dartmouth just in time to catch all teams in 2 waves travelling across the lower ferry. Seb as per usual could be heard on the other side of the river Dart then as he disembarked all the way through Dartmouth. Destination 3 day 2 was Cremyll, Cornwall. This destination split the teams up when it came to routes. Balls of Fury got there via the Torpoint ferry and as per usual were in "Stealth Mode" again (we were around the corner visiting relatives whilst they sneaked past), the other teams either c…

Run 2 Datsun Sumary Day 1

Image
Ok then folks, it all started at approx 8.30am on the 5thJune 2010.
We pulled into Portland Bill car park already to find 2 members of the Nissansportz club, team Sleazy Jet (Seb and Sarah 350Z) and team Honey Monster (Paul and Sarah in a bright yellow 370Z). Also waiting for us to arrive (yes we were slightly late) was team Knappmobeel (father and son team Ian and Simon Knapp in their Audi A4), plus Bio Hazard (Nigel and Jayne in a Bio diesel VW Passat).

Next team to arrive in a Cosworth blue Smart Bluewave Coupe (with Viper stripes) was team Killerviral ("Purveyors of Fine Free Games"), Chris Kempt and his faithful sidekick Paul Fryer. Killerviral the Britballrun winners 2007 and runners up by 1 point in 2008.
Last to arrive team Balls of Fury, Karl and the last Sarah (there was 3 Sarah's and no it was not in the rules you had to bring one) in their Peugeot 206.
Once registered they were off a 1 minute intervals. After the teams had read through their shopping lists they …

Final Count Down

5 Days 2 Go!!!

Start

Image
Start point for the "Run" is Portland Bill, Dorset. Teams needs to be in the car park for 8.30am.
See you there.

Charity

Image
This is a fun (and less energetic) way of raising money for your favourite charity.
Last year we ran a "Run" for the Nissansportz club (8 Nissan 350Z's)and raised over £300 for the Help for Heroes charity. Not bad for approx 6 hours of driving through Shropshire, Herefordshire(cider country) and the Welsh borders of Monmouthshire.
Taking in the beautiful towns of Bridgnorth, Ludlow, Hay on Wye and finnishing at Chepstow castle. But that was last year all I can reveal for this year is it will start at Portland Bill in Dorset, and this is a 2 day event so will mean at least twice the amount of beautiful and interesting places to exprience during your quest to be the "2010 Run 2" champion.

3 Places left

Image
Ok this years "Run" is limited to 12 places, we have 3 places left to fill. If you are stuck for something to do and cutting the lawn and washing the dishes gets a bit mundane. Sign up for a mystery tour that will take you to some of the most beautiful parts of the country, whilst on a treasure hunt collecting precious items or was that irrelevent junk? You don't win by finnishing first, you win by completing the tasks in the shortest distance. Oh and entering into the spirit of the event is encouraged but not the rule. £140 per team (driver + navigator) secures your place which includes hotel accomodation for 2 nights. What you waiting for.....the grass to grow again?
