The winning pre-race excuse was Jo Laing’s. She wins something from Compress-sport. Her entry is pasted below. Well done to the other winners, also to Turkey Hat Man, Super Santa Man, Grant and the heads-and-tailers, we hope you like your Buffs. We also hope you like the beer – we’re back to supporting a local brewery – Red Squirrel are based in Hemel. You can buy their beers on line if you like.

Jo Laing’s wining pre-race excuse …

Arlsey how it goes but I don’t think I’m the winning Pirton. Also, my feet are Hitchin – could do with an Ickleford massage? Hexton my list is the Luton. Is the other Letchworth giving the prize to? You’d be Preston finding a better excuse than mine! Of course, I’m talking a load of Baldock!!

Car Parking:

If you intend to bring a car, you must book a car parking place. You can select either “A” parking at rec. or “B” car parking in other car parks around the village. “B” parking as at most 600m from the rec. When entries close we will email you a sticker that you should print off and display in your windscreen as you approach the village – follow the signs and the directions of the marshals and you will be guided to the correct car park.
