The first ever running of the Around Down 200 on Saturday July 2nd is fast approaching. The date for receipt of entries has been extended until Monday 27th June. Entrants are now into double figures – last week I was panicking that no one was going to enter and now I’m getting nervous about how many will enter! Went for a spin around the course yesterday (by car) for final check of the route (it’s fine). Hoping for a good day weatherwise as the scenery is beautiful. Have secured lunch (tea/coffee/sandwiches) for £5 a head (payable at sign in). Looking forward to seeing you all there.
