In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem. If no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire, The A Team.

On a windy sunday morning their mission was a 10k run across Bournemouth's Sea front. The A OR ANDY TEAM did this in style wearing printed t shirts with their logos, and 80s head and sweat bands. Without entering and having to disguise their true identities pretending to be someone else the 8 althletes had to give everyone else a 5 minute head start.
Playing catch up the winner of the team was Si Fitzackerley coming in 42nd place finishing in 42 minutes overtaking a fantastic 270 people with the last of the group completing the course in 69 minutes coming in 291 place was Andy Potter.
All the finishers were awarded medals and a full race review is available in todays echo as proof of completion. Or see pictures at http://groups.msn.com/D-W-DCardiff

I would like to especially thank everyone who took part and to everyone who sponsered me. I believe their are only two people who have got away with not paying me as they set a time limit of an hour of the race which i failed to meet.
With regards to sponsership I have decided to split the money 50:50 between the origional cause of the D-W-D and a childrens cancer charity. There is no rush on paying up but the sooner the better.
