Ryde 10 (3 Feb 2019) Entry and Travel Update......
We will avoid the problems with the road closure being put in place way too early last year which meant people couldn't park!
Entries are now at 305 online plus a few postal that I've not counted yet. Limit is 500.
WightLink have confirmed travel sponsorship - it's 50% this year! We'd like to thank WightLink for supporting us with this very generous discount for runners. The mainland travel for runners attending our races is limited to 250 tickets and has to last for all our races so I'd like to ask a favour. I'd like to push that people try and group together if possible to limit the number of tickets..... 1) Cars and four people. 2) On the Ryde Cat people pre-book in small groups of 4-10, note if bigger groups get to 20 this is a Group Ticket and is discounted AND then the 50% comes off this. As for cars these group tickets are only available online before the day. Avoid single person tickets on Cat - I realise this is going to be difficult as people just like to turn up and buy a ticket but it will help us immensely and I imagine a lot of clubs will be heading for the same crossings. Of course if you're travelling independently then single crossings are still available.

There is a Solidarity run being held on Sunday 4th Nov 10am Yaverland car park in support of a young island runner. No entry fee but donations appreciated. Please support and show that the islands running community cares - all are welcome.
It's up to Culver and back or as far as you want to go. Folk can run as fast or as slow as they want. The idea is to turn out to show that the support is there and no one is alone even in their lowest points.
