Cheque returned today with a flyer stating that people were turning up at the home of the race organiser posting the entry forms personally. What chance do peoplehave who live away from York.
I posted my entry on the Saturday when the forms came out.
Will not be wasting my time and stamp money next year though.
Surely a ballot would be fairer ?
Point for debate: Should Knavesmire harriers stop giving the entry forms a few days early to local clubs?
Obviously the final decision belongs to Knavesmire but we can argue the merits either way. I can see advantages to both sidesof the debate (I think).
I don't think Knavesmire are unusual in handing out entry forms to other local clubs and I bet it doesn't make that much of a dent in the 1500 places available. ......... clubs all over the country give out advance entry forms to other local clubs. And it's very much a reciprocal thing: Knavesmire Harriers have a robust presence in many local races in the North Yorkshire area and things hereabouts would be the poorer without them. You can bet they get advance entry forms from race secretaries of other clubs.
Nepotism?? We couldn't exist without it
I'm in too - hurrah!
Hi swittle, nsc, bunnyphobia, mick etc
I'll be there ... first HM since 1986 .... very glad it's flat!
Hey Tutu! Long time no post
Is this race over-hyped? I only have glowing memories, but that's just the shine of it being my first half? I suppose its one of the few 'old school' races with a PB course and non-extortionate fees.
Anyone put together a training schedule yet? I'm currently drumming one up; otherwise I'll just be wandering up on the day woefully underprepaired! Any secret key tips to divulge?
I've only done it once (this year) and it was just completely flat and easy to get a PB at, think that's the general reason it's popular! I also think it's nice having a half so soon after christmas period, gives you something to focus on and keep going through the festive season....
I'm in ! hiya Tutu, fancy meeting you here ! If you're trying for that sub 1.40 can you pull me round too ? I'm sticking to some easy running after the Abingdon marathon for another week or so but definitely want to get some speed work in soon, been trying for that sub 1.40 for 10 years, about time i got it.
Agree with some of the people it's a bit of a bummer getting the application on the saturday and still missing the cut, fraid it's the problem with popular races although i think this one must be one of the fastest filling 1000 + place races in the UK . Now that would be a good survey, what's the fastest filling race in the UK, not counting FLM and GNR ?? bet this one would be near or at the top !
anyone else aiming for that sub 1.40 ?
hi LMH was so excited seeing tutu's name didnt see you above her (snigger snigger) hows the legs after Abingdon? thanks for the company at the start, reckon you did a damm good time stosay how little recent running you'd done. How's the knee now ? hopefully ok for this one !
see ya there !
good luck at the fizz LMH
and hello everyone
really looking forward to this one and hoping to be around the 2 hr mark
Hi all! I'm in too Ran it in 2006 and had a great time. Was too slow off the mark to get in the last couple of years, so I'm really chuffed to get in this time.
nsc - I'm aiming for 2 hours too (well, hopefully just under!)
