Sponsors We are being helped by several individuals and companies who have kindly offered their services or support and we are very grateful for their responses. Ed & Phil Active - owned by Edward Chapman and Phillip Howells and who are also well-known ultra distance runners are distributors and agents for a selected range of innovative products for many sporting and outdoor pursuits, specialising in trail and off-road running and walking and serving an expanding network of retail outlets throughout the UK. See their website at www.edandphil.co.uk We have an attractive logo courtesy of Mark Howlett at howlett design. It makes such a difference and we are grateful to Mark who put it together very quickly. Go Outdoors in Gloucester are helping provide sports drink and have donated a Ron Hill jacket as a prize. The track lighting has been kindly sorted for us by Chris O’Carroll. Ermin Plant hire are going to supply all we need. The use of the track lighting is subject to limitations due to the closeness of the residential community so we will have a lower level of lighting that won’t be such a problem for the neighbourhood. Keith Godden at ULTRAmarathonRunningstore.com has kindly offered some prizes. Keith set up Ultramarathonrunning to provide an excellent ultra calendar and subsequently created an online specialist store supplying running equipment, clothing, gear and nutrition for trail & ultramarathon runners that like to run long! We are grateful to Wincanton Logistics for the contents of the goody bags. We would also like to thank Mike Storey and his colleague Dennis King who are generously sponsoring the cost of the aid table.
