I'll be hauling my sorry carcass around the course - see you all there."This car would be less annoying to the environmentalists if the engine ran on sliced dolphin."

Mrs Rebel is running for a nursing charity but I'll be around to cheer on any of you lot who are running. Where are the ARRSE support contingent likely to be hanging out.You've done your bit Hooky, out you go.

On RW someone has said that if you are running for a charity then you wont have chip timing as its extra. Still never mind.

A few clarifications:
I have an official collecting tin, which I will bring (along with the trusty banner) for prising cash out of the fellow revellers loitering on street corners. We can then off-load it straight afterwards to the CS staff at the picnic (why have I just said that in my head like Yogi bear?) or we can take it with us on our re-hydration session as long as we don't lose it or break it open to buy beer and I'll return it to CS at a later date.
I too have received a Nike t-shirt with my number printed on it, along with words to the effect that we should wear this on the day. Nice idea for 25,000 runners to look identical but ridiculous if the organisers ever thought it would stick. So many do the run for charity and will of course want to display this. I was drafting an email to CS to warn them but have literally just received this (as should all of you runners) from Tom at CS:
"If you haven't already, you will soon be receiving a black and green Nike top from the event organisers. This is not your Race Pack as I will be sending these to you myself. You will also receive an email telling you that you have to wear the Nike top on the day, and the website also states these must be worn because they carry your race number. This is not the case.
We would like you to wear your Combat Stress t-shirt during the run to show you are racing for the charity and also to raise awareness. The race packs that I will be sending to you include a paper number which you can attach to your Combat Stress t-shirt. The black and green Nike vest is merely a mement of your day from the organisers and is not to actually run in.
So please do wear your Combat Stress t-shirt with pride during the race, and simply attach the paper number in your Race Pack to the front. I'm sorry if the organisers have caused any confusion with the introduction of their Nike tops, but I hope you are looking forward to the day as much aswe are, and I think it will be fantastic to have all 90 of our runners sporting the charity t-shirts powering through the streets of London."
Should be clear. The chip timers are not in the t-shirt, I don't remember ever having one for this particular race, something to do with running in a charity place. Just wear a stopwatch yer cheapskates.
Just one point though, I'm not sure that Tom has ever seen our ARRSE team run before, if he had he may not have used the word 'powering'...
Oh and one more thing..... PLEASE consider dropping a quid or two in here, even fluffy ones from down the back of the sofa. Jesus will remember. Helen Garner is fundraising for Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society (COMBAT STRESS)
