Entries open for this one on Mon 1st Feb.........and it fills up very quickly.
Toying with whether to enter or not??????
I will be running my first marathon in Brighton on 18th April........ and was sort of hoping to then run our club marathon.....Kent Coastal on 5th Sept. I ran the Half as my first race ever last year (after only running for 6 months) and it sort of feels fitting to come back and run the Full Mara a yr later.............. Besides it also counts for Club, Kent & Grand Prix Champs this year.
The problem is that there are then only 6 weeks between this marathon and Abingdon..........Is that too little time for someone with as little marathon/running experience as me????? What do more experienced runners think????
I had also thought of just doing Brighton before I decide whether I even want to do another Marathon! But if I do that I won't get a place in Abingdon.
Do I just enter and then if I decide not to do it later sell my place on to someone???.......the demand for this marathon always seems high.
Oh all theses decisions!!!!
The race site says they are short of marshall coordinators and that firm decision on 2010 awaits this. Does RW sub only link above say different?
As if we're talking about this already.
Only just getting over last October!
Great race though. Really enjoyable (well, as much as a Marathon can be )
Hold on a minute - what did you say HowFar? There's no confirmation that there will be an Abingdon 2010?
I simply stated what it says at event site.
Although the race has been run successfully last 2 years, it stop a few years ago because of organisation difficulties.
its going ahead
Im waiitng for the on line entry
Once the online entry opens you will be able to view it. Even if you're not a subscriber.
Edited for typos
Top Of The Pops ....really...it`s that good is it???
Surely it's only 'subscriber only'/locked because it's not open/live yet?
I entered Abingdon last year through here, can't see why it'd be a problem this year.
Well, I'm a subscriber and I can't see any online entry procedure on the RW event page either.
It seems to me from looking at the Abingdon website that they intended entries to open in late January, but that they are now waiting to confirm that they have enough volunteers/marshals etc before starting to take anyone's money.
I'm not sure there's even any point completing the "universal entry form" available on this site until everything becomes clearer. And I am not saying that just because I don't want everyone else to get their entries in before I do!

No............ they are waiting for RW to fianlise the on-line entry. It is going ahead and postal entries are being accepted already!
