A quick reckoning and that's 33 points before you've even laced up your trainers. :shock:

Round Three Scores - after 8th June

1. Das - Brockenhurst (9) = 78 pts
2. Soup Dragon - Seaford Beach (8) = 69 pts
3. Going Underground - Cranleigh (9) = 54 pts
4. Iain - Cranleigh (7) = 42 pts
5. geofftech - Pontypridd (4) = 33 pts
6. scrxisi - Southwark (4) = 29 pts
7 = The Raven - Upton House (4) = 19 pts
8 = Drain Brain 0 pts

Das improves his position at the top of the table, Going Underground and Iain both improve their scores in 3rd and 4th.
geofftech moves up to 5th following his run at Pontypridd, but this won't be enough to make the semi finals.
The Raven moves off the bottom with his run at Upton House.
Three weeks remain to improve the scores.

Das improves his score, but not by enough to make any impact on the top two:
No improvement made by Soup Dragon or Drain Brain, and Going Underground didn't run.

I'm at Bedgebury Pinetum this Saturday, any time ending in 9 will give me a big score.
I'd settle for 20:59 as that would also give me a stopwatch bingo, but reckon that I will be over 21 mins.

Although time wise will be a struggle for me this week as Achilles /calf area not in good shape :( I am at Cylopark , so that must have potential......
