6 days to go.....

Where did the time go?  Getting very worried now that there is a missing link the size of Lancashire in the preparations.  Hopefully the information booklet I have prepared is sufficiently readable and detailed for everyone to follow, but I guess we'll find out along the way......

Anyway, many important decisions to be made during the week none more so than the team selecting their starters, mains and desserts for the celebration meals in Inverness and Penzance.  Here's hoping for some serious downpours this week for the air to clear for a perfectly dry 9 days thereafter.

Below is one of the pitcures taken after Bushy parkrun yesterday.  A more capable bunch of runners for a 1,000 mile relay event you could not have selected!

PS  Thanks to Bushy parkrun for the support, particularly Ray Coward for announcing the Stragglers Jogle event and allowing us to start Bushy parkrun and hand out leaflets at the end advertising our event!

SMS to donate - Accepting Text donations now!

Fundraising has gone through the £ 5,000 mark now and we have just set up a text donation service through Just Giving (Virgin Money Giving don't support this currently).  100% of all SMS donations will go to Macmillan Cancer Care.

Separately we're finalising the car livery designs and the cars will be seriously pimped up with Stragglers JOGLE livery.  Evan sent through the designs yesterday and I measured them on my car and I don't even have large enough side panels for the versions we were proposing.  Scaled down versions are being marked up, but that just gives us more space for our 2sq m of printed stickers to go elsewhere on the cars.  We'll certainly be noticed for the 10 days of the trip!!

Flyer below for the SMS donation information.
