Who'd have thought it?

A Half Marathon in October and you'd expect a little rain or a slight chill in the air? Not in Basingstoke last Sunday - temperatures soared and runners did incredibly well in the heat with the winner coming in around 1 hr 20 mins! Carpuccino was there to support the race, runners, supporters and volunteers and while coffee was still on the menu for most, as a first we sold out of cold drinks! Congratulations all!!

Early start on a gorgeous day!

Fun & Games

Had a great weekend hanging out in the Royal Crescent at the BANES Family Fun Day and Bath Skyride! Saturday was gorgeous weather and the turnout was great - lots going on for all the family. Carpuccino was there, and was busy! Sunday wasn't quite the same - we all got a bit waterlogged in the rain, but well done to everyone who did get up and out on the Skyride - what a great way to see Bath! Thanks for a fun weekend!

Sunday shenanigans

We had a great day in Tewkesbury yesterday, in the shadow the The Abbey, keeping 1400 gutsy people supplied in delicious coffee, who'd just run the Tewkesbury Half Marathon!

Well done to all those who ran, with thanks too for all the fun supporters!

Warm up?!!

Evidently this is the way to warm up at the Bath Cycle Races ..........

......... I think I'd prefer a delicious shot of espresso from Carpuccino, if it's all the same ... :)

I like to ride my bicycle, I like to ride my bike ...

but not as fast as the guys did last night in Victoria Park as part of Bath Cycle Races!! Boy, did they go fast. There were about 4 categories last night, each one cycling around the loop in Victoria Park as many times as possible. Evidently the hill is a killer. I'm not surprised - once is enough for me - but 10 times!! I don't think so!! So Carpuccino remained in the Check in area and served delicious caffeine to the adrenalin junkies ... well done everyone who competed last night - see you there again next week!!

Do make sure you TRY our SCRUMmy coffee - Carpuccino will be in the LINE UP - we hope we can CONVERT you to gourmet coffee drinkers! See you there!

CaniX ....

Had a really interesting morning at Cirencester Polo Park last Saturday - watched numerous runners and dogs getting plenty of excise in the glorious morning sunshine!

Carpuccino sadly couldn't take part - as we were too busy serving coffee, although we'd have to admit we had a crucial element missing - a dog! But great fun was had by all!! Thanks to CaniX.

Hell of a lot of fun!

On Saturday Carpuccino was at Cannock Chase providing support for the third of the Hellish run series ..... Hell in the Middle. 1,600 enthusiastic (if not slightly mad) runners took on the challenge of running 12 miles through mud, bogs, partly filled in quarries, and the gorgeous forests of Cannock Chase. The sun came out and there were muddy smiles all round :) A Great event organised by Trail Plus, well done Paul and the team!

Not surprisingly, Carpuccino was in hot demand - as soon as the gun went off and while the runners were fighting for a place at the front - so too were the spectators fighting for a spot in the coffee queue! Thank you to everyone for your patience! We got to you all happily in the end ..... the one draw back of delicious, freshly ground coffee, is the queue.

But a big thank you to the boys in blue who kept you all entertained, in the glorious sunshine!

Feeling a little Wicked this weekend?
