This morning I chatted with Tracey Alexandrou, organiser of the Lactic Rush taking place at the Secret Nuclear Bunker near Kelvedon Hatch on 15th May. Tracey, who’s a personal fitness trainer, has designed and tested an 8-mile course through bogs, lakes and other obstacles, and she explained that you don’t need to be super-fit to take part. It’s in aid of Help for Heroes, and you can also get people to sponsor you for your chosen charity if you wish. Tracey said that it’ll be a great day out for the whole family, even for those not taking part, and she also told us about a much loved Essex celebrity who’s already got his name down! To find out more, or if you’d like to act as a marshal on the day, visit www.lacticrush.co.uk or phone Tracey on 07792 011817.

My clue to the Stuck in a moment quiz was that this song was nominated for a Grammy award in the category “best female pop vocal performance”*:[audio:https://www.phoenixfm.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Stuck-in-a-moment-24a1.mp3]
My cryptic Where am I? clue to a location somewhere in our area was the question “Did the Home Guard Sergeant own a shop here?”, with the hint that this place was the scene of a massive fire just over a hundred years ago.*
*The answer to Stuck in a moment was Oops! I did it again by Britney Spears. Where am I? was Wilson’s Corner, the Sergeant being Dad’s Army’s Wilson, and the shop being Wilson’s Department Store, which was destroyed in a blaze in 1909.
