Run2 France 25th,26th,27th August 2012

Image
Ok then kids it's here, the next Run2 will be held over the August Bank Holiday weekend and will be on French roads this time.
The format of this next outing will be slightly different from previous events.

First change will be the team with the MOST Points Win!
Your route each day will be given to you, this means you'll know where you're going to (which will be quite nice). However you have to prove that you have gone to each destination by having your photo taken outside a local place of interest. Shortest mileage has been dropped for this event so the roads you take are your choice.

There will also be challenges which are how you earn points. These will take the form of collecting items (shopping list), questions/quiz and other tasks which at present are in the planning stages, plus it is your chance to enter your own personnel challenges in which all the teams will have to complete (these will be submitted to myself before the event just to make sure they are cruel er I…

European Mystery Tour anyone?

Image
Ok folks study this map carefully as next August bank holiday we are going international!!!!
Yes that's right we're off to Europe for a 3 day mystery tour, at present it is in the early stages of planning   but this will be less Treasure Hunt and more Top Gear challenge. It's so secret at the moment I don't know where we are going but trust me this is going to be BIG. The only place confirmed so far is France because that is the other side of Dover.

So watch this space for further info.......

Oh and a heads up, you may need to check this link out to give your loved ones ideas for Christmas this year.

Cotswold Capers!

Image
At approx 09.00am Saturday 15th October the teams set off from Tewkesbury on the Run2Saturday Night.
The teams consisted of Bio Hazard (Jayne and Nigel-VW Golf), Juke of Kent (Sarah and Paul-Nissan Juke), Sleazy Jet (Seb and Sarah-VXR8 Bathurst) and Shocking Blue with Roy and co driver number 3 Ed in the Astra VXR.

The first destination was Broadway, Worcestershire where as Sian and I pull in we see Seb and Nigel checking the back of the Bathurst. It seems a lady in a Rover 75 just couldn't resist giving the Australian Great White a little nudge! No damage though fortunately.

As we leave Broadway we follow Sleazy Jet out to the sound of 13 cylinders reverberating off the Cotswold stone houses (5cyl from the quattro and 8 from the Bathurst).
Seb soon shows us why he purchased his vehicle and we are in Chipping Campden sooner than we realise!

The Teams have a few tasks here to complete including finding a Grave Stone.
However it is now destination 2 and still no Shopping List? maybe…

check out the ghost!!!!!!!

The CannonPaul Run

Image
Just getting over a GREAT weekend on the CannonPaul Run.

This was Paul Stennings 40th birthday celebration (Team Honey Monster), put together by Paul and his "Good Wife" Sarah.

We had a fantastic time and decided earlier in the weekend we would do the decent thing and only come in at 5th place (I think we did that subconsciously, due to the fact we organise them ourselves and it wouldn't be fair to win. Think I got away with that one, anyway congratulations to Team Shocking (sort of teal blue this time as they used Alison's car this time) Blue for their win. See you on the Run2 Saturday Night on the 15 October
Image
Ok a little change in direction for this Run but as it's in October and close to Halloween why not...!
The date for this one is the 15th October, it's a 1 day event with optional hotel. The cost will be £20 per team but this will be going to Help for Heroes charity.

The start will be at Tewkesbury and our presence will be found around the South Midlands.

Hotel details will follow soon (don't know where it is yet!).

Spook to you soon...sorry!

It's been a long time coming, but here it is.....


Run2Saturday Night Fever

Image
The next Run2 event is going to be in October (date not confirmed yet), and this is going to be a 1 day thing (or "Thang").
It will be a back to basics affair where the entrance fee of £20 will go to the Help for Heroes charity. As for hotels, well that's down to you so it will be a truly optional choice. The hotel will NOT be at the end of the run, but "Some" miles away, and once we know which and where the hotel is you will be given the address and phone number to sort out yourself.

There will be no trophy on this one but there will be a prize for the winning team....

The idea will be a "Medium" size run to allow for those who want to get into the "Saturday Night Fever".

Like I have said, the run is still in the planning stage so more info will be announced once I know........

Possible dates so far are 15th, 22nd or 29th of October.

All feed back welcome.

A little something to get you in the mood

Run2the80's(Day2)

Image
Day2 started with a slap up breakfast (for those who could stomach it). The "Day 2" envelopes were handed out along with some very fragile Rubik's cubes (more on this later).



We checked out of the hotel and all met up in the car park where we had our first casualty of any Run......Wendy (half of Thelma and Louise) had to retire due to back problems.


However the other half of T&L, Judith has managed to form a new hybrid team....."Shocking Thelma" with Roy and Allison (formerly Shocking Blue).

So with the sound of Frankie Goes to Hollywood reverberating around the Ramada Warwick's grounds we're off on Day 2.

First stop is Kenilworth Castle, just a short hop from the hotel. Straight away there is some teasing problems with the "New Team", Roy gets to the castle gates only to find his 2 team members are nowhere to be found on their first joint mission.

As other teams find the next number I hear one team member (Seb) let out a "Oh No"…

Run2the80's(Day1)

Image
Teams Balls of Fury and The Cossie Boys join Sian and myself for our mini convoy to Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk for the start position. On the way we get a phone call from Bio Hazard as they are already at the harbour car park.
We pull into the car park ourselves meet up with Nige and Jayne(Bio Hazard) and now just have to wait for the second half of the group to arrive.
At approx 09.00am their convoy arrives (should have been at Wells for 8.30 but had problems with the hotel.....).


Teams "Thelma and Louise, Honey Monster , Shocking Blue (Roy and Allison) and Sleazy Jet park up and do their meet and greet..

So now we have between us 32 wheels, 22.3ltres, 41 pistons, 4 turbos' and 1 supercharger....we're ready for the Run2the80's The envelopes are handed out and they're off.








First stop is the church at Sculthorpe, which all went very well and according to plan however the next stop did not......

The "idea" of the second stop was to find the notice boar…
