I just made it a sticky again as I'm pretty sure it was before at one time.

Great work Spokey :thumbsup:

A few points from the experience we've had on our organised forum runs based in Newcastle:

I'm surprised that you've stated that hand-outs are unlikely to be provided on a day run? Every Forum run I've attended have had some and as a result Steph and I provide handouts with basic important information e.g. our mobile number in large script, and an outline of the route with major turns and junctions indicated including where the major stopping points are for coffee and lunch. Our recce of routes provides a chance to see where problems might occur and this helps in putting these documents together. I guess it's best if they are not needed but where groups do get separated they can make a big difference.

We also give a briefing at the start of our runs - highlighting arrangements and particular issues to watch for on the run (all get to ask questions as well as contribute to this). All drivers are expected at the briefing before the run starts - Even though it might be repetitive for some of our regular attenders I feel it's vital for all, especially newbies.

It's worth including a request that those who can't make the run or are likely to be late, contact the run organiser so as to save them waiting at the start. (A text will do). Similarly it's important they let the organiser know if they are leaving early.

A road map (regularly discounted at Supermarkets) is useful to have on a run - satnavs sometimes let you down

Hi all. I have done a few smaller runs and in the absence of radios etc everyone has taken the responsibility to ensure they can always see the car behind them... Helps avoid junction losses and also means you don't leave a fallen man or woman behind...

Might not suit all if there is a Miss (or Mr) Daisy out there... :D
I ain't fallin for no banana in my tail-pipe!
