We’ve emailed this year’s race briefing pack out to all of the runners today, but here’s a link to download a copy if you haven’t received it (one tip… Hotmail users please check your spam folder as that’s often where our emails end up for some reason).
There’s under three weeks to go now and race preparation is in full flow for us here at BaM HQ. If you have any questions about the race, you can ask on Facebook which usually gets a quick response, but as race day gets closer, things get even more mad for us here, so if you have an urgent question, please give us a call as we won’t be online as much.
This is the race’s 5th Birthday which is just scary, we have no idea where time has gone and when you look at how many runners took part in year one, its amazing to see how the race has grown during that time. This year will see the relay race running in full for the first time and the Friday night party will be Cowboys & Indians themed, so we can’t wait to see your fancy dress costumes. Did we mention there’s an actual bucking bronco coming along too? Now there’s one way to put yourself out of a race with an interesting injury…. We’ve also invited back some of the past winners of the 12 & 24 hour events to take place, so we’re expecting a very competitive race at the sharp end.
Right, best get back to the glamorous job of labelling bottles.
See you in a few weeks time!
I’ll be closing the Hoodie and Beanie order on the 7th of August to allow for production and delivery before the big event. We will get some to have in stock, but not until race-o-rama is over later in the year….
We, at BaM, are delighted to announce that our new online race merchandise shop is up and running. You can pre-order your 2015 GO33 t-shirt along with our 2015 G24 Hoodies. Both will be available at their respective races for collection. Please note that there is a closing date on Pre Orders to allow adequate production time for our printers.
We have a selection of historic t-shirts still for sale, all reduced from their original prices for clearance. Happy Shopping!!….

Welcome to our new BaM website! Since we organised our first race in 2011, the number of race websites & associated email addresses feels like its increased year on year. As a result, we’ve taken the decision to redirect all the other sites to this one in order to make this website a single source of information about all of our races which should make it easier for all concerned!
In addition to this, we’ve added a shop section to the site where you can buy race merchandise and we also intend to make race entries available from here to keep admin costs to a minimum.
As a reminder, you can follow us on twitter here and you can email us by clicking here.
