Desperately want to do this in 2011. Brother has just done 1.27 beating my pb of 1.30 set back in 2003 on this very course. Haven't been road racing for years but got the urge again having just completed first season in triathlons. Any idea when entry opens?

quality I will be up for this one!!

Shhhhh! Don't tell everyone!

I've already bookmarked the link on my mobile so I can check when it opens regularly 

Wonder if the site ends up crashing once entries open, VLM-style?

They have obviously got a new race administrator, because the previous incumbent told me himself, that the day it goes on line i've finished.
03/10/2010 at 15:42
Anyone know when the entries are going to open?
03/10/2010 at 16:48
Dunno but it wil fill up in a hour and half   !

Hi Old Timer
I remember our discussions last year about the on-line entires so was a bit surprised to see this!!

I will update this thread as soon as I hear the date

......................the enrtty forms were available on the 18 October last year when the race was on the 24 January.

Next years race date is the 23 January...........................

Won't be long then.  Sure we got more notice than a week last year though...

This needed to go to on line entry. It was a shambles last year with some people hand delivering on the Sunday not getting a place when some posted entries did which could have only arrived on Monday at the earliest. Good on you knavesmire harriers for addressing this.

How can they work a 'first come, first served' system if everyone rushes their entries in at pretty much  the same time?  On the other hand do they open it for, say, 3 days, then close it and have a good old ballot?

I will be interested to see how it works with an oversubscribed race like this one.  Whichever way they do it there are still going to be some disappointed people.

Oh, crumbs I'm in Amsterdam this weekend Saturday til Tuesday. May have to pack the laptop

Unless Archie's theory is correct and it'll be next weekend.

To play fair they will have to have a ballot because if you miss logging on for just one day you'll miss the chance
11/10/2010 at 22:34
Well that's no different to the postal issues of prev years is it? There hasn't been any mention of a ballot, I just assumed it would be first come first served.  At least then you'd know straight away if you're in or not.
16/10/2010 at 22:34
Any news yet?  is it going to be tomorrow?

Where is this race based?

I am a novice runner looking to enter half marathon distance races next year.

17/10/2010 at 11:59

it's in York, word on the street is that entries will open today - it fills in a day so you need to get in quick.  Failing that, there's a half in Cheshire on the same day which I will be doing I think if don't get in BM

Whats the Cheshire race H&T?
