Entries close very very soon for what can only be described as one of the best off road marathons and half marathons of the year this is a gentle reminder for you to get your entries in soon as they close on Friday !(yes tomorrow - really really soon)
There are no entries on the day - so you have to get it sorted out now !
All the information you need about this great race is here: http://www.steyningac.co.uk/?page_id=20
Did you get bogged down in the Brighton Half last weekend, and you have just seen the weather forecast for this weekend then you are probably going to have a slightly lower mileage than planned and possibly be a little bit behind schedule?
As they always say - All is not lost and don't panic !
In about a weeks time it will be ideal timing for you if you are doing either the Brighton or London Marathons to get out and do at least a half marathon...off road...in Sussex...on the downs. ANd why not ?
There are some great maps of the race available on the race website too - check this one out for the full marathon: http://www.steyningac.co.uk/?page_id=177/stinger/fullmthn.html
So as you sit in the office today, staring out the window at the rain, thank yourself that you have sorted out your race schedule and get entered into the Stinger. NOW.
Download the application form - and then if you don't think that your cheque will get there by Friday - then give them a quick ring (number on the entry form), email in the form and sort out the entry fee asap. You know it makes sense ! It's a great race, great views and great fun... I wouldn't want you to miss out.
I look forwards to seeing you on the day, remember to smile everywhere - you just don't know when you're going to have your photo taken (which will be free to dowload off our gallery later).
I make no apology for the persuasive nature of this email - if I can make the effort to get out on my 40th Birthday weekend sunday morning to see you up there, the very least you can do is turn up to the party :-) and yes - you are the last one I have personally invited.
p.s. A free all day breakfast for all finishers ? YES - it's got to be worth it just for that alone !!
