    Thanks Ian – only a small error that I made (new at this Premiermarathons stuff) is that the start – it’s between 7 and 9 pm on the Thursday. There is camping there as well and people are welcome just to come along for the camping/social aspect as well (there will be event activity there as well. The start is leave once you arrive, checked in, and ready. It’s not a race per se, but it is timed and of course some people will like that competitive element. Others will enjoy the 3/4 moonlit course, red dunes and the challenge of following the curves of the dunes and the undulations. I am looking for a marshal or two – recompensed by bribes and goodies.

    Please ask any questions you may need.

    Here is the Premiermarathons entry and more info.
