Wow that's some list of people wanting numbers - hope I'm not one to have give mine up!

 It's good to see the organisers are allowing number swaps this year though as last year I was ill and wasn't allowed to transfer my number.  It does make sense to allow people to do so as it fills up so early anything can happen to people who have places.  I'm sure there will be a fair few numbers come available in the next couple of months.  I do hope people who are waiting for numbers do the normal training though and not just think they can wait for a number to become available in the last few weeks!

May I also join the back of the list!?

Thank you!!

Hi Beders and all on the waiting list,

I hope it goes well for you all, and you get into and run Abingdon, but just in case you don`t get a place then think about joining us a week earlier, running the Leicester city marathon. Loads of entries available right up to, and even entry on the day(premium to pay for this privilage though).

We have a Leicester city marathon thread going, and would welcome you popping in to take a look, maybe Abingdon is the one you have set your heart on,  but at least you now know that there is an alternative close to that date that you could run.

Happy running

Thanks for that shaggy. I'll keep that in mind. Whats the course like for PB potential? I'm looking to go sub3

Thanks for that shaggy although have to admit I'm not on the list as I've got a place at Abingdon. Did look at the leicester one but did do the Abingdon last year and loved it and I seem to be a creature of habit so I'm back there again this year.

a nice easy 5 miler in the sun, not ususal bank holiday weather but well appreciated.

Hi 

Would it be possible to add me -  Dotty to the list please?

 Cheers!

28/05/2009 at 12:51
um... just checking back on as I am overseas at moment and it's hard to log on... does not appear to be much change on the list, but I guess people will not pull out until they start upping training in earnest and (sadly for them!) have to pull out for the various reasons...
28/05/2009 at 13:30
And another one to be added to the list please! Many many thanks for organising this....

think you're right MT, after the excitement of the first swap might be a bit boring on here for a while as the list gradually grows, hope you're not working too hard abroad to get some running in ?

cheers

Do you think we need to establish a presence on the main Abingdon marathon thread, just to let them know we're here should anyone have to  withdraw? 
Are you a regular contributor on the main thread, Beders, and are you happy to fly the flag for us  there, or would it be helpful if the rest of us popped in from time to time?

(Thanks again for your commitment to us would-be-Abingdoners)

sorry guys haven't been about a while, unfortunately my bother in law, a really really great guy, has just passed away this morning, only 57,  after fighting myloma for 5 years. would you mind posting a bit on the main thread for a week or so runner-bean ?, I'll keep coming on this one but will take a break of most of the posting for a few days

cheers

Beders, sorry to hear that mate, that's very sad news. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Take care mate.
01/06/2009 at 22:32

Just popped in here to moan about a rubbish Edinburgh marathon......... but reading the post of beders has knocked those feelings on the head. 

beders - sorry to hear about your brother in law. Condolences to you and your family.

Really sorry to hear about your brother in law, beders.  No age at all: how very sad. 
Of course I'll post on the main thread, and I'll quite happily add any new people to the list here too.  Take as much time out as you want, and take care of yourself.

02/06/2009 at 10:59

Sorry to hear your bad new beders. Take care.

02/06/2009 at 11:00
Runner bean - can you add my name too? Long list=Long shot I know but I have unfinished business with the 26.2......
02/06/2009 at 12:49
Hi everyone,  Beder I am sorry to hear your sad news, 57 is so young, my thoughts go out to you and your family, take care.
