Afternoon all...! So entries open, not sure what to do? to enter or not to enter??? Would like to have a crack at another PB and its our club (Port Talbot Harriers) race also.

Enter, you can always transfer your entry to someone else and there's normally a waiting list...

Anyone know when the online entry is likely to be up and running ?
01/02/2012 at 15:36
Took 2 - 3 days before online entry opened last yr. About 1 month to sell out. Then you could pick up an entry on this thread over much of the summer from those who ended up injured.

I'm afraid I won't be joining the fun this year. Partly due to running so quick at Abo last year that I feel pretty happy with my marathon pb at the moment, partly due to another bun due to pop out of the oven in the next few weeks and partly due to a new focus - duathlons.

Have fun y'all

Keir, 5 pence says you'll be toeing the start line in October! 
01/02/2012 at 17:02
I'm entering.  Looking forward to it now....

im in -entry done
01/02/2012 at 19:54

I'm going for it again. Hoping the training goes a bit more smoothly and Paul doesn't leave me in a cloud of dust at 22 miles this year

See you there Keir. You joining the fun SJ ??

Yes Sir
Also in for Preston the week after...!
Plan ("it was Keir's idea") is to check form in Sept and if looking good i.e. sub 3 is even a slim possibility - go hard in Abingdon then very easy trot round Preston
If form is poor, and nowhere near sub 3 then ditch Abo and enjoy Preston (won't be another one for 20years so would be rude not to)

What's your plan FW? 2:45????
01/02/2012 at 21:39
I'll take that 5p from you SJ. Got my clubs duathlon championships on the same days as Abo. After VLM I'm in the MM club for marathon running!
01/02/2012 at 21:41
And we all know how that's going to work out!
01/02/2012 at 21:47
SJ - wish 2.45 were even vaguely an option mate! Will see how edin goes in may then take it from there

Entries open, this is good news. I am definitely going to be there, injury problems have now all cleared, and I am well into my training for a May marathon.  After my demise at 24 miles at Abo last year, it will be time to get some payback.

See the banter has already started

Paul, you know you want to.

Am trying to enter on line but can't get on.........decided yesterday to not bother but hey ho, changed my mind overnight but hope am no too late !! 
02/02/2012 at 11:42
Me too...i really fancy doing this one and dont want to miss out!!
02/02/2012 at 12:08
Have e.mailed organisers to check if full up already. I know it is v popular but cannot imagine it is full just yet !  
02/02/2012 at 15:02
It took a month last year to fill up. Bearing in mind it's only postal entry just now I guess they'll have no idea how well subscribed they are. Is the onlne open up and running yet anyone know ??
02/02/2012 at 15:23
Abo will be a training run for me but looking forward to it
02/02/2012 at 16:38

Wish on line entries would hurry up, or that I could find a cheque book. Either would work!
02/02/2012 at 17:12
Ahhh I assumed online had been up as some of you said you'd entered - you obvs meant entered by post. O.K...panic over....will post my entry tonight.
