I now have full details of who's in the team for Brive and who the management will be. There have also been discussions about travel to and from the event and also communications from UK Athletics about anti doping, code of conduct, kit, etc
The men's team is:
John Pares - third at the Commonwealth Champs
Stephen Mason - fourth at the Commonwealth Champs
Richard Quennell - winner of the Tooting Bec 24 hr race last year
myself - fifth at the Commonwealth Champs (and second team)
Jim Rogers - sixth at the Commonwealth Champs (and second team)
The women's team is:
Sharon Gayter - winner of the Commonwealth Champs (and first team)
Marie Doke - fourth at the Commonwealth Champs (and first team)
Pauline Walker - seventh at the Commonwealth Champs (and third team)
The management will be:
Richard Brown, Eleanor Robinson and Adrian Stott. All highly experienced but I think we could do with a few more bodies manning the refreshment tables during the race.
Training going extremely well too. Ran 22 miles on Tuesday including a lovely stretch of the Leeds Liverpool Canal (and Hollins Hill !!!). Yesterday I completed a hilly 22 miles fartlek style [6 mins hard, 4 mins easy, repeat].
