Nope.

Not too upset. Still not sure about making plans for next year.

"Unfortunately, you are not among the lucky winners of the lottery."

Mixed feelings.

In the past 24 hours, both Frankfurt and Cologne have both cancelled their October marathons. I am still training for Berlin and have (refundable) flights and hotel in place, but that news isn't particularly encouraging.

No, it isn't encouraging, you're right. The official FB page is still publishing cheery posts almost daily, but comments there suggest a fair amount of doubt amongst runners over whether it will - or should - go ahead.

Based on the subsequent email from the organisers, it nw appears that they are going ahead - if you are vaccinated or have a test. Hamburg is also saying its on for 12th Sept for vaccinated runners. I will just keep plugging away with the training at this point.

Good luck to anyone who is doing this at the weekend! I hope the last minute travel and logistics all goes smoothly.

I'm now wishing that I had got a place in the ballot after all (after spending most of the summer feeling relieved that I hadn't!).

Got something to say?
