Sorry to be a party pooper but reading some of the posts on the forum I feel the need to put my Club Secretary hat on and point a few things out.
According to the Stroud website numbers are not transferable. It’s possible they may still change the name, however whether this is possible once chipped race number have been posted I’m not sure.
My main concern is that this is a County Championship road race. Running in someone else’s name may have a significant impact on another persons points tally and potential deny them a medal. This has happened before and proved very embarrassing for me when explaining to the County Secretary that a) Lady was actually b) man who PB by 10 mins.
I cannot stop you running but please bare this in mind.
