Dave, I'm afraid that you failed to use the correct formatting which did not represent the Beacon audaxes by importance 8-] . See my correction below.

That's an excellent list, Dave, thanks for posting. I wonder how many of these 56 events will see some Beacon involvement...the vast majority of them, I suspect.

I see the 300kms Rough Diamond Audax is back after a year's gap, and some 2 weeks after the 400kms club run, so that could be tempting?

and oi, Phil...what about the Sunrise/Snowdrop Beacon audax...I want larger font, even though it's still full to bursting. :D
