It wouldn't be the CWR without a couple of changes in the week running up to the event! Andy Shaw is feeling his age & one of his knees, so has unfortunately had to drop out, although will run if desperate! On the plus side, Richard Anderson is now available, so will partner Alistair on Leg 2, with Gary moving up to Leg 5 for A Team & Gavin now on Leg 5 for Ale Stars.

Please note the registration time for your leg.  I'll be taking the declaration sheets with the both team's details to Leg 1 registration.

Don't forget, each runner MUST carry or wear water/windproof whole body cover, plus hat, gloves, whistle, compass and relevant map. Otherwise you will not be permitted to run. If anyone is short of any kit, please let me know ASAP & we'll see what we can rustle up. 
Hopefully, you've all had or have planned a recce of your leg if needed. If anyone is still unsure, please try & get out between now & Sunday. Gary was wanting to refresh Leg 5, so if anyone fancies a trip out, please let him know ASAP. 
Here's that link to the Fellrunner forum with the maps & route descriptions. Please print one off & stick it in your bum-bag! Page 94, post 931: 
Please make sure you liaise with your partner in terms of transport etc - again, anyone not able to drive, let me know & we'll try to organise lifts. I've put mobile numbers where I've got them. Please let me have your number if it's not there or if it's wrong! The Ladies' team is:
Leg 1, Kath & Lucy Needham; Leg 2, Fran & Karen; Leg 3, Lesley Ewart & Harmonie Waterman; Leg 4, Helen & Maggie; Leg 5, Julia & Lucy Verrill & Leg 6, Jacqui & Lorraine. Their e-mails are on this message, so see what they're doing for transport & try to link in wherever possible.
 Any queries please let me know and if you find you can't run for any reason please let me know ASAP by email or ring me
Please can you reply to this e-mail, just to confirm everything is still OK and keep away from sharp objects, heavy weights & ladders until after next Sunday!
