it's exactly what I did. BIRC about 2004 at the NIA. I underperformed admittedly (~6:58 when was probably capable of ~6:50 at the time) but nonetheless an interesting half-day. Nothing verntured, nothing gained....do it.
Me too, my first race was BIRC 2003 at the NIA, didn't have a clue what I was doing but managed a PB and came 5th in the 45-49 MHWT class. There was much more races back then, seemed to be one every month and there was the C2 Grand Prix series through the year. Great fun.

Unfortunately I'm not that close to London, there again I have a feeling winning may be easier said than done :)

Ah! That explains why he wore that yucky kit to a meet a few years ago. That was one sure way to drive them off.
