After years of glory, wars in every part of the world, conquered kingdoms, pacified countries, brought the civilization to far barbarians lands, proved the mercy after the victory, severe but fair, the Knights decided to change the strategy.
The Black Committee, after long discussions, propitiator actions and a wide amnesty for the long-time inmates (only who have ugly wives because they cannot forget how stupid was to fight against the glorious Army) took the ultimate decision.
The question was: April 25th will we enter the Tarquinia half marathon or the 11.6 km (7.2 ml)? Will we do the Bounty hunters or the Fighters for the glory? The decision was hard because the last year the Black Knight and Long Joe entered the main event but the first received the last prize of his age group (3 bottles of wine, cake and t-shirt) and the second nothing.
After nights and nights of discussions the verdict was unanimous: Bounty Hunters, come on with the 11.6 km! The reasons are: 11.6 km (7.2 ml) are too much for the young sprinters and too short for the long distance runners, but perfect for us who made the appropriate training; the prizes for the half marathon are 30 for every age group and our one (Black Knight and Long Joe – MM50 - ) is the most crowded; the prizes for the 11.6 km (7.2 ml) are totally 30 but the participants will be less than the MM50 group runners!!!!
In the end we are proud to announce that now the Black Knight Army has a Mascott: he is mr. Bayley, the Princess Lora's Pup.
