Worth a thought, i'll drop the organisers an email and see if its a possibility to just turn up and enter.... In the meanwhile if anyone knows of anyone i'll happily buy their bib instead of it going to waste

Race pack arrived today. Oh no, my Race number is emblazoned with Half Marathon. I've been told it is all fine, they will know I paid to upgrade to the full.

Bring on the axiety dreams. I picture myself being rugby tackled like Kathrine Switzer, and being dragged off the course screaming "but I paid .."

entries are closed now but if anyone wants a half marathon entry mine is available

Dean - was just going to ask if you were still planning to do it off a long run of 6 miles!

18/09/2013 at 15:09

lit - i think i have the kick finish into the racevillage sorted its the first 12 miles i have neglected this summer.   if i get no takers for my entry i will still turn up and treat as a 10k that i have to hang on for another 7 miles. could be messy.  its a shame as i entered with the view of this being a shot at a PB but have been otherwise occupied.

If you do turn up you can do it super-slow and pace me to a new PB if you like.

Hoping my race pack is waiting for me at home.  I last did this full marathon in 2005 and conked out round HPP.  Not this time ... NOT THIS TIME!

Dean how much do you want for your half marathon entry? will the organisers do a transfer?


18/09/2013 at 20:38

Jac- only after whatever I paid for, £27 Inc postage for the number.  The webpage says no transfers but there is a helpdesk on the day & More often than not if you tell them they change the details.

Got my number today and a distinct lack of info!

19/09/2013 at 22:01

No joy with EOD.... So if anyone has a bib for the full, I'd happily reimburse to save it going to waste!

19/09/2013 at 22:05

Sorry to hear that Slinkz. Keep emailing them; there will be plenty of no-shows as per.

19/09/2013 at 22:10

I'll keep pestering, thanks for the heads up and hopefully see you enroute 

20/09/2013 at 08:02

Slinkz - might be worth asking the organisers if they will allow a half to upgrade to a full.  If so you can have my half and upgrade.

Face book posts by the organisers have been blanking any transfer requests - it has just been  firm NO. May need to up the game with persistence and a sob story.

I'm crook - having a typically miserable taper.

20/09/2013 at 08:55

agreed, but if you turn up on the day with a number at the helpdesk organisors will often make the transfer despite claiming they wont.


20/09/2013 at 10:13

Thanks - I'll keep persistence, surely its better than having a number/bib go to waste?

I'm happy to cover entry fee and any admin charges etc needed.... we shall see, good luck with the last taper week all those 100% in!

20/09/2013 at 22:27

So some people have got their name on their number and I haven't... is it a special thing only for actual fast runners, or do the organisers hate me?

20/09/2013 at 22:45

It is just like VLM, only the elites have that privilege  Actually scrap that idea as I have my name and a tiny number

20/09/2013 at 22:56

Huh. You lot can just go and be all fast at the front then. See if I care.
