I entered last night too.

I wonder if there is a bit of a "Boston" affect here, as the events there may have got some people interested in running a marathon who perhaps had never thought about it?

the reason it filled a bit quicker is the all gfa people were told to enter the ballot then at the end of may the entry for us opens and if we have a gfa time to applythen as well and our ballot place will be cancelled

Next year some poor sod will be under pressure to find a way to make it sell out even faster. Will mean the race isn't as good if it doesn't (in the mind of messed-up manager types).

That seems like a very backkward way of doing it doesn't it dery? Why not fill the GFA places then have a ballot for the remaining places? Maybe they could even tell ballot people more quickly than having them wait till October.

Going to cut down to one latte a day and stick the money in a money can. That way if I fail I can have a tidy sum to put towards the charity place. Then would the VLM count as a £1000 race if I raise 500

Got something to say?
