I saw an advert for this on the a414, investigated and found it was £30 to enter. that's me out!

i race on average 3 times a month with my running club and pay around £3 to enter, 10 times that is a bit steep!

Never been to the secret bunker... I could never find it.... Keeeeeerbooooom

Looks interesting though... And local, no travelling miles to race then having a long car journey with tired legs on way back.. So the entrance cost out-ways any huge fuel cost...
