BCN Marathon Challenge 2011: Index

We had a great time on the 2011 BCN Marathon Challenge – in order to capture the essence of the day we kept a running blog which we published every few hours as cruised along.

As our summer cruise progresses the BCN marathon posts will soon be buried. We hope that this index will make them easier to find:

We took part in the BCN Marathon Challenge on behalf of Greyhoundhomer, a small branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust – thanks to our kind sponsors we raised over £2000 for the cause. We were acoompanied by four retired greyhounds – visitors Ranger, erny and Archie and one of our own hounds – Lynx. Lynx is a prolific blogger so here’s his take on the BCN Challenge!
