I see we're into week 2 of entry for Boston 2018. Anyone applied this year?

I see that the first wave to open included 20 minutes under the BQ time for the category. That's quite a lot under! :-) G

Mine is not quite that far under but decided to give it a miss this year as I missed doing London this year.

Quite good to know actually, because it gives me incentive to go for it in my qualifier races. Was going for a time that is about 10 mins under my BQ, but incentive to go quicker if I can!

I've got 3 bites at the cherry for Boston 2019 - Chester Oct 17, London Apr 18 and Edinburgh May 18. :-) G

Last year I think the cut-off was something like -2 minutes.

Got something to say?
