Bacchus Half and Full Marathon 2012

The Bacchus 2012 Gallery is now live and online here: http://bit.ly/Bacchus-2012-official-photos 

The results have been disconbobulated so that people who entered the marathon, but did a half in the end are now all straightened out and are on the SportsSystems website here. They are still in provisional status as I type, so just contact them if you think there's anything amiss.

Looking through the gallery I can only guess that the fancy dress theme must have been "Carry on up the Bacchus"... Take a look and tell me what you think too. Frankly running a half marathon is hard enough, you don't really need a hilly one or fancy dress, but all of you to your own challenges !!

Regarding the wine and water stops, I hear the 2010 vintages went down particularly well, and although it might have only seemed like a 1:35 half marathon, it was infact 5:43 and you did two laps for the full marathon by mistake...

Before I post the photos - as ever a quick reminder of this weekends upcoming action that you really ought to be organised for - click on the links and get your race schedule planned !!

Call for entries are in for all these excellent races

1. Pride 10k - on Saturday 15th September
2. Pilgrim Half and Full marathons - Sunday 16th - if you liked Bacchus you'll love these
3. Maidenhead Half Marathon - flat and fast - PB (personal best) course
4. The Chestnut Tree House 10k, Littlehampton - very flat - PB course
5. The London Zoo Stampede 10k, go wild !

Then after that on the Sunday 23rd September:
6. The Tonbridge Half Marathon - gently undulating around Kent
7. The Pleshey Half Marathon - Essex Half Championships

And for the end of the Month weekend you can:
8. Sat 29nd - The Hurt - off-road trails with some Surrey Hills

9. Sunday 30th the Inaugural Eailing Half Marathon - 4000+ entries urban PB tastic
10. The Folkestone Half, on the coast
11. The Bexhill Big 10k, on the coast
12. The Reading O2O 10k, not on the coast, on the river.

Olympic rings from the top of Box Hill watched over proceedings

Well done to everyone on completing both the half and full marathon distances on Sunday. It was scorchio, and I hope the wine managed to somehow stop you from dehydrating on your way around the course.
