On the Edge

I got a nice thick A5 letter through the post today which indeed was full of promise for it was the final details for the White Cliffs Challenge on 22nd/23rd September 2012. The instructions were the usual ones:

TR to small car park, thru iron gate TL and fllw SO...

To the uninitiated this can be quite confusing but after a while you can read it as 

Turn right to small car park, go through iron gate, turn left and follow straight on...

but by far the best line in the instructions are:

IMPORTANT: PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ROUTE GENERALLY FOLLOWS THE CLIFF TOP FOR THE NEXT 12 MILES TO CAPEL-LE-FERNE AND EXTREME CARE IS NEEDED TO AVOID THE CLIFF EDGE, WHICH IS VERY CLOSE IN PLACES

This sounds a brilliant challenge which is primarily designed for walkers but will be very interesting for us runners especially as a good part of it will be running in the late evening...just mind the cliffs :-)
