Behave, Ryan. You talked me into it last year after I'd had less practice than you've had so only fair you tag along this time. Plus, you don't want to miss out on our favourite T-Rex impression do you ?

An asterisk with a footnote on the bottom of a leaderboard is rarely flattering !
I'm planning on taking part this year too which will make it my second ever parkrun. Going to come prepared this year though....I'll bring along my barcode which I've just printed off ! :lol:

Re: The next Championship of Champions - now back on topic

I believe the finals of S73 have been moved from 2nd & 3rd November to 3rd & 4th November, which makes it unlikely that there will be a CoC starting on the 4th. Perhaps the plan is to put the CoC into one three-day filming block starting from 23rd November? That's correct. CofC's recordings will be...
