Hey you guys….

In a strange turn of events I’ve been told in no uncertain terms to sign up for a race!! This never normally happens, I normally get a bit of flack for booking up races, especially when I’ve not 100% confirmed that the date is good for everyone! This time I’ve been positively encouraged to do so, and it means I have to bunk off work for the day too!!!


So upon getting to the office this morning I had a chat with my boss, booked the Tuesday and the Wednesday (just in case) off so I can go run in the Goonie Run on the 7th July. Result.

It also looks like I put my entry in just in time as looking at the events page now the sign up link has gone and its stating its full.

Here’s the full details.

PHOENIX – Goonie Run

Online event entry – PHOENIX – Goonie Run

Are you a Goonie? You might not be from the Goon Docks in Oregon but you can still come and join us to celebrate the US release date of one of the greatest films in history. 

Phoenix running is holding a 6 hour timed event, so come and run with us on June 7th 2016. 

You can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 3.28 mile, out and back, course along the beautiful river Thames. Complete one lap and you qualify for the bespoke finishers’ medal, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 6 hours. 

The medal for this one is a must have! 

PHOENIX – Goonie Run Medal This event is fully sanctioned by the 100 Marathon Club and for competitors completing 8 laps or more (26.2 miles+) this will count towards your numbers. 

The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route. 

Places will be strictly limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.
