Quick plug, the TG 06 in Wolverhampton. www.toughguy.co.uk. A manic event not for the faint hearted. Birmingham and Exeter OTC will be putting in teams (as many as you like but 8 to count in the mens team and 5 in teh womens). There is a military team category. 29 Jan 06.
Midnight Fox and all the TA/OTC geezers. Exeter are getting 2 MTDs (travelling up saturday) to coiver the entry cost for the event so if you need that as an example to plead case with your budget holder I hope it helps. To my mind it is a hard earnt 2 days considering what it takes! ET
Even the organisers claim it is 8 "Country" miles. Hanged if I know what a country mile is except that it's a lot longer than a mile. A running journo who did it a couple of years ago reckoned it was nearer 12.
Done it twice with a 35lb bergen to add a bit of interest. Really good laugh it isn't. Satisfying at the end - definitely.
Midnight fox, don't pm me for details at all; pm Pillager. You can also tell him that he is a retard and had better stop posting under my username or I will tell everyone that he abraded his bell end severely on Wednesday when the draw cord on his shorts got stuck inside his foreskin while out running.
