I think insurance companies are starting to notice bockers, so we are suffering at the hand of them. Be nice in any email, offer to work with them to make doing it on bocks happen, point out the great publicity and morale boost that having bockers take part gives. Other than that, there is not a lot, get hold of every one you can, it does not hurt to get your message across to as many people as possible.

hi bgirlmandy :)

I've been trying to get a go ahead for race for life this year as well. no joy so far, although i was told this morning by a very helpful call assistant called Sarah, to please call back in a week as several of her colleagues have received calls re: bocking the race for life, but there has been no change in the flat out "no" answer yet  :Ccry:

I mentioned that Sport Relief were allowing groups to attend certain events and run in a separate "wave" beforehand, so I would be tempted to try and push to arrange this if we had enough interest from the girlies on here??

As I'm unable to attend the Sports Relief events this year due to travel *sighs*, does anyone know if there are any other charity events this year where both guys and girls could take part? Although I've taken part in race for life for a few years now (and will certainly be doing it again this year regardless of whether it has to be boring walking/jogging or not), i would love to be able to take part in a charity event with a larger group at some point  :Cnotworthy:

Life is about skidding into the parking space of death sideways at 90 miles an hour, music blaring, chocolate in one hand, champagne bottle in the other, body completely battered and used up and screaming "HELL YEAH!" as you toss your keys to the Grim Reaper"

Another event?

Yes,  this wasnt ( and isnt I dont think) going to be pushed till after sports relief ( only fair).  But in June , for the 4th year running 'bockers for life' will be joining cruiseaid on their 'walk for life' in London its a 10 Km walk and just a 'SCREAM'.  Thats even if you dont have Jason jumping on your toes or a photographer getting kicked by a flipping bocker!

Bit more info and a video from last years event here   http://www.jurassicjumpers.stiltsmedia.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=418.0

As I say  more posted after March 21st



OOOO and there will be atleast 2 or 3 'ladees wot bock' ( thats the technical term) at the Southampton Sports Relief mile

Yes Q - Walk for life was amazing last year and sign me up for this year!

and youd think that if 'walk for life' let us do their sponsord walk, 'race for life' would do too ... why not tell them that weve done walk for life for 4 years and no accients .... everyone is always so careful around people, plus when people see you, they naturally just get out of the way. I've never seen anyone crush a pedestrians (cant spell but u get my point)

Keep on nagging them! maybe if they see a big group of people wanting to join, they might say yes...?

Why not try and get 'walk for life' to give a sort of referance to 'race for life' ??
