For reference, Jon, it took me three minutes to sign up online at 1st attempt while all appeared to be carnage around me.

By the sounds of it you were one of the rare lucky ones SBT! lol.

Looking at the entry list after initial cut off, some names were appearing 8 times! lol.

Will see how the race goes this time round but not sure If I want to put myself through the stress of the entry process next year.

I think that's how a lot of people feel about it now, Jon. I'll not do it again.

Won't be stressful next year *crossing fingers*. I think they may be going for a ballot... Would save me time camping on the refresh button, so I'd be happy. :-)

It was the growing frustration on Fetch that tempted me into entering, JonP1 - and I was fully expecting to be timed out or some such. However, I was fortunate - or not, as I need to slot some training in now! ;)

Well good luck everyone for Sunday! Hope the weather isnt to bad - meant to be a bit of rain by look of the forecast, hopefully wont be to bad or windy though.

Must say I am a bit peeved that we cant use mp3 players - not use to running that kind of distance without the aid of music! But then again can see why they are not allowed - if the roads aren't closed :(

Got something to say?
