Last call for entries this weekend June 28th 2015

A rare second blog post in a week...

The Surrey Sportive
Just a quick last call for entries for The Surrey Sportive this Sunday. We don't do many race entry calls - but we do get plenty of feedback from you saying that readers of this do like it when we list the events that we are going to be at, so please excuse the non-race-gallery email !

Discount code
As your eternal race motivators and cheerleaders we have got you a special discount code SSP10 if you enter online this week - which will get you 10% off the standard entry fee of £22 for the longer distance. (although to be honest it's such good value for a fully managed sportive ride - at least that £2 saved will cover a coffee enroute)

Just click here to enter now 

Entries are open on the day, but last year the number of people turning up at the last minute caught everyone out, so get the entry in now as you know the weather is going to be fantastic ! (in the morning at least), so get yourself sorted out now...

Starting from the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford (just off the A3) at 8-9am, the routes are either a 61k or 104k (37 miles or 64 miles) around the Surrey and Hampshire countryside.

Free Photo Downloads 
And, if you remember to smile, our photographer is going to be at the 12km mark and Wood Street Village - with free downloads here for you to remember the day with ! The free downloads usually retail as a screen resolution collection for £19.99 - so that's almost the entire entry cost returned just as photographs - how good is that !

Other bits and bobs you might want to know about can all be found on the ride website here and here's a few of the handy things that the ride includes - on top of the feed stations at Tilford and Headley ! Can you guess what the symbols mean ?

So register here now before the last minute rush on the day and make for a nice relaxed sunday registration and ride (plus it costs more to enter on the day) - 

Other races going on:
If cycling isn't your thing then onto the start of July we have the Saturday 4th
Brutal 10 Frith Hill

and then on the Sunday 5th
Chichester Tri
Bewl 15
and 7Oaks Aquathlon

The RPAC Summer 10k on wednesday the July 8th

and then after that a couple of half marathons on the 12th July
The Surrey Badger Half Marathon at Dorking with Events to Live, including live Pic2Go images (so you'll get £19.99 worth of photos courtesy of the sponsor - Run to Live - during the race itself)
and then also the
High Wycombe Half marathon and 10k

So that lot should keep you busy ! If there is a good pick up on the discount codes we can promote we will start to make more of an effort to get them more regularly from race organisers that can offer them and process them (not all online entry systems are born equal!)

Have a good end to the week and enjoy the fine weather !

Have a good ride !

Until next time
