Anyone know how we enter if not done already/?????

oooh.. a new thread.

Not sure if I'm running Brighton next year or not at the moment - It was a great race yesterday and I will definitely run it again, but I got a GFA for london and a Boston qualifier so might have a go at one of those instead.

Will be keeping an eye out on here though and you never know, I might have another go next year...

AGF I believe the ballot opens tomorrow

Thanks Stig

A ballot ? What happned to first come first served. Did not make it to the BC and now may not get in? Crazy.....well annoying.

Have not yet seen a site for the entry/ballot!!

Hello, hello! Toenails haven't even fallen off yet from 2012, and here I am. Looking forward to it, now that I know what to expect! Maybe we should hire a bongo band to cheer us up at the power station. Or in Paris in the Bois de Boulogne they had a band with a camp man wearing a sparkly wig. Something like that.

AGF - if it's like 2012, first come first served entries open tomorrow morning, of which there are a limited number. After those run out it's a ballot. I think this is how Edinburgh works? Anyway, if you sign up tomorrow you should be fine.

I must have been seeing and hearing things, but I was sure there was a band playing steel drums at the powerstation. They were in the carpark (next to Carats Cafe) or just after the shower, maybe next year there need to be more drummers?

 Am I going marathon mad?

16/04/2012 at 16:16
NO, it was probably me as my husband thought that too. I was just feeling down then - perhaps nothing could have sparked me up. It is a rather dull part of the course, but I guess they are trying to balance that with making it as flat as possible.

When is the 2013 race?
16/04/2012 at 16:25
AGF: it must still be first come first serve for the first amount of places, otherwise they would have not been letting people guarantee numbers at the expo for £10.

You're right that is a dull stretch, and just a the point where the support is needed. I really had to dig deep there. I am glad that there was no wall there this year as there was in the last 2 years, it added a visual reminder as to how painful it was at that point.

 I'm going to take a guess at either 14 or 21 April 2013, but we should find out when the ballot opens tomorrow.

14th April is the race date and found somewhere that says that the entries open tomorrow for limited places.

Thank you folks...

You're either all braver than I am, or in less pain. I'm glad I finished yesterday, but I'm not doing that again in a hurry.

Good luck!

I'm in for next year - deferred place from this year.  Really looking forward to it.

Helen not braver just more fool hardy
16/04/2012 at 19:00
Toby & Charlotte I couldn't agree more and trying to eat my body weight in chocolate.
Helen as Toby says not brave but I personally was disappointed with my result do want to get stronger and quicker over the next year and smash this years time. I won't let it beat me

I'm going to try this one...but will be relying on you all to keep me motivated for training...did dublin a few years back but didnt train at all like i needed going to start from scratch although im doing a bit ofrunning and do it properly this time looks awesome..
16/04/2012 at 19:43

mair keep posting in that case even before you start traing as we try to keep the thread going all year that way you build up a good rapore withe everyone and helps later when training starts in ernest

what’s for me now will enjoy the rest of the week here in Brighton it’s been another fantastic day here the weather was much like Sunday hot in the sun but quit nippy when in the shade then it’s back to training for the Bristol 10k in may

Would love to go sub 50 minutes for that i think i shall do this year what i did last and only run the distances i need for races i am training for then i may need to find a race sometime between May and August to fill in

As i then have the GNR on the 15th September the Bristol H/M when i get some money to enter it on the 30th September and the Cricklade H/M on the 7th of October?

then it nearly time to start again for Brighton
