Has anyone heard whether they are tinkering with good for age times again this year?

The Inspector
Another question to add to this GFA thread. I cross age categories during the year between April 2014 and April 2015, ie this year I ran the VLM in the 41-49 category but next year will be taking a step up to the 50-59 bracket. To qualify for a GFA entry do I need to achieve a GFA for the age I am when I run a particular race or do I need to achieve the GFA time for the age I will be were I to run VLM 2015 even though I may be in the lower age bracket when achieving that time? Hope that makes sense.

Your age on race day is what matters and I haven't heard any whispers about GFA times changing again. I would be surprised if they did again so soon.

Yep as Paul says, your age on VLM race day is what matters, happened to me last year. Someone on RW reckons they were a volunteer and rumours around that there are too many GFA, how so at around 3500 I don't know, more like they want more charity places to make money out of. I crossed the line at 3:49 and hung around for a friend until 4;55 and it was a lot busier at the later finish time, not too bad at my gfa time so I think it's still ok.

Got something to say?
