By the way, from previous experience (not to say its you guys, I'm posting this on all the forums I'm posting on) we always get a few that turn up but make no donation and just tag along, as this is a charity event (and cheaper than a lot of static events) we feel this is quite unfair to see people take advantage this way. This is why, if we see anyone who is just tagging along this time, we will take down numberplates and name and shame them. We feel this would be particularly effective this time due to the amount of coverage we are getting now. So please guys and girls, make the donation and don't be a douche and just tag along!

ok please post this on all forums you have posted to about the tunnel run...
Its groups like this that often have us asking ourselves why we bother to organise tunnel runs…
People that don’t want to put their hands in their pockets and donate a small amount to charity, whilst having fun.
Ben Bumpin Buckley why arnt you going into essex arena?
Kim Ling whats that mean?
Ben Bumpin Buckley everyone is leaving from the arena so wondered why people meeting in the services?
Chien Ling last year it took over an hour and a half to get out of the arena... 400+ cars through one gate... meeting at services seems the logical alternative...
Ben Bumpin Buckley yes you do have a very good valid point there took us ages to get out
Ben Bumpin Buckley Haha wicked stuff. What time you arriving ?
Chien Ling About 11pm...
Ben Bumpin Buckley Arena leaving at 1045 ain't they?
Chien Ling Not all 400+ cars will be able to leave at the same time so they will probs start leaving for the A13 between half 10 to midnight... if we leave for the route at half 11, there will be plenty of action... )
Every year we have the same people tagging along and not donating.
We know that they are public roads and everyone is intitalled to drive on them,
But we have had people in the past that are just out to cause trouble for everyone else, driving dangerously etc.. its people like these that give good people who want to do something for fun and raise money in the process a bad name.
This year as well as chalking numbers on the cars we will also be putting a unique symbol on each window. If you see a car on the route without these markings, please take down the details and name and shame.
It takes a lot of time, effort and money to arrange these events, and we hope that all the people that donate and enjoy the event think it is worth while.
So please help us keep these events worth doing, and stop people like this spoiling our fun.
