On you marks, get set....

GUCR...GO

On 10th September I sent an email notifying the organisers of the Grand Union Canal Run of my interest in running the event in 2012 and was duly put in the ballot for selection. It appears this year the event was very overbooked and therefore the chances of being pulled out of the hat were slim. To tell you the truth my general feeling was just to enter it and if I was not selected then at least I tried which is a better feeling than not trying at all.

The draw for the event was held last night in the Swan, East Ilsley, Berkhire and we were informed that we would not know of the results until tonight but this morning the Facebook GUCR pages and emails were flashing around and I was really pleased to see that I am in....the training continues.

  1. I wasn't so lucky I'm afraid. Genuinely gutted this morning. Well done you for getting in: best of luck with the training and the race!

  2. Thanks Gary, it was a big shock for me this morning due to the number of subscriptions that Dick mentioned (I would love to know how many people actually entered the ballot)
