i tried Straycelt honestly.....I did the run with my OH who was not amused when we were 14 miles into the run and we calculated that it was at least 12 more miles if we completed the circle........or 14 if we retraced our steps

So what's the time table for this?

T-mouse - normally a pitching thread goes up after the asics 6 have been announced. Pitches are collated and judged by an external person who has no involvement. Successful punters are then matched to mentors and threads posted on the marathon page. Then the fun begins!

Found this thread after Minni kindly posted about it on the Target 26.2 thread. I'd be very interested in this and I'm sure alot of the other bootcampers would too. 

As I understand it, this is a forum supported parallel of the ASICs competition, correct? I assume this is for a spring marathon too then and I guess we can pick any one?

Last year the dates for the marathon were quite relaxed, so if you wanted to run a marathon in June then that was acceptable.

Only rules are that you need to be a forumite and regular poster, not a fly by night never to be seen again.

You'll be mentored by another forumite with a proven track record in chewing the fat and talking toot.

Malcs - there'll be a thread started very soon for you to post your pitch on and then the pitches are judged by an independent person.   You pick your own marathon and own schedule.

Ooh, T.Mouse ... a marathon in June you say ? ... do you know if there are any good ones then ?

05/12/2012 at 10:45

Fair point T.mouse. I'm very new here so I'm sure there are other regulars who deserve a forum six place more than me.

I've done the odd search over the years (usually on injury matters ) and I've followed the Target 26.2 winners but I've only got into posting since becoming part of the bootcamp process. These are my first postings outside the nest that has become the 26.2 thread. 

I have to say everyone has been incredibly friendly and very helpful. Only problem is all the discussion and banter is very addictive!

Thanks T.mouse+Minni for your fast replies.

Keep a look out this week for a thread

I have all the mentors in place and then it's down to you!!

Then it's handed over to KK and her team of independent adjudicators to pick the lucky few which will be announced on Christmas Eve

Bruce, I think threre's a nice easy flatish one about that time, yes.

we have new ones as well as long as they have started posting and seem to fit in and have a sense of humour and can show they are willing to post regulary

Nice easy flattish one sounds like a good one!!!

05/12/2012 at 19:21

hmmm... I was thinking of another very flat (cough cough) marathon being organised by a forumite.

05/12/2012 at 19:22

Oh, Malcs, I voted for you anyway.

05/12/2012 at 20:04

T.mouse - thanks a million!

seren - I'll be at Llanelli if Paris is a no-go!
