I certainly hope to be on that start line next year.

That’s great. Current plans are that I’ll be there in a supporter role for daughter and son-in-law, but that’ll change ten times between now and then!

I’m on an odd-year pattern at the moment. 😀

But, more to the point, I think I may have given them the impression that I’ll do grand-parenting duties next year so they can both run it. (Daughter did it this year off no training and loved it!)

Of course, if I get a place in the LL50, this will become an essential training event and I’ll have to work on my persuasion techniques with my nearest and dearest. 😉

Shades I’m not sure what the overall stats say. I have been unsuccessful in the ballot in 2022 and 2023 (the only years I have tried for) and both times have been able to get in by subscribing later for a charity place. I’m hoping that the odds will work in my favour for 2024 and that I’ll get a standard place, but I honestly don’t know what the odds are!

Anyway, I really am delighted to hear that you are drawn back to the DD with these tweaks to the cut-off times and I’ll hope to see you there in 2024 one way or another!
