Getting Back in the Forest

Normally at this time of year I plan out the events I’m thinking of going to, as the UK season gets going again after the summer recess, and “terrain” events start to appear in SE England, following the summer’s Park-O and urban race action (as an aside, my 2004 list contains entirely forest events, how times have changed.) I’ve marked on as NEW the areas I haven’t run on before. My attendance at most of the below depends on weather and hangover, obviously.

    you should probably go to the Brighton City Race too, and what’s the super-secret race?

    If I told it wouldn’t be a secret! (it’s not that exciting though and it won’t happen anyway unless I get a lot more time to finish the map…)

    Thanks re the tip for Brighton – added.
