It's Only Rock 'n Roll
13.1 miles of it

Brickyard FilmClub Guy will by running ... in the loosest sense of the word ... the 13.1 gruelling miles of Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon around Liverpool on 20th May.

It's all to Raise funds for the Get Involved Project. Engaging young people with special support needs in the production of the Oh My Nottz online magazine.

Don't let it be in vain!

Here is his fisrt training report.

Of all the half baked advertising gimmicks that have been used over the years to temp the naturally couch bound to become day trippers and don their running gear, staging a half marathon in Liverpool, promising psychedelic 1960's finisher's tee shirts, Beatles impersonators every step of the way singing Penny Lane or Strawberry Fields Forever and calling it the Rock and Roll Half, to entice the terminally star struck, must have been thought up by a fool on the hill.

Yes, it worked. I entered it. So in that sense the hard day's night some honey pie of an advertising executive spent staring through a glass onion on this little con deserves the Maxwell's Silver Hammer Award for cockiness.

I must confess, that as I donned my old brown running shoes, for my first 'post entering it' training run, a sort of here there and everywhere, trot around my usual haunts, a part of me had bought into the idea that this mother nature's son was somehow on the magical mystery tour to stardom, just by running in the same of a city as the Fab Four.

But that was yesterday. Today I shall let it be. It is after all just a long and winding road.

All I have to do is train, eight days a week, accept that I will finish, as ever, as a nowhere man, run for my life on the day, collect my 'I'm a loser' tee shirt at the end and promise myself to run it not a second time.

With that I will say hello goodbye. But don't let me down on the donation front.

Come together and add something to the Get Involved fund so we can work it out before I'm 64.

If you can't donate I'll understand. After all, every body's got something to hide except for me and my monkey.

Activities That Get involved Will Support

As well as involving the young people in the production of the reports local projects and places of interest, we will be working with them on various projects of their own.

Here are some examples.

Robin Hood - the new movie.

 T. J. and Ryan have been working on their own version of the Robin Hood Legend. It is all a bit mad and involves a few unlikely characters, a bit of confused time lines and a Robin Hood that is not all you might expect from the biggest folk hero ever to come out of Sherwood.
