Anyone know when this race opens for entries?

I e-mailed the organisers to say we couldnt register online via RW as their website suggests.  I dont think the organisers were aware of this problem, but they are now.

The organisers otherwise advised to register by post (entry form is on their website).

I'll let you know what they have to say about the RW registration problem.

Thanet always put on some stonkingly good and well organised races so I am sure they will get this sorted PDQ.  I bet you that, now you've flagged it, they will be all over this like the proverbial rash!!

And, I should add, the 20 is historically and epic race.

Mines a pint of cider please TRAC.  ;)

Cheers PSC. Organisers replied immediately which was good. The RW reviews of this race are all positive. Looking forward to it. Perfect timing for my training for my first marathon - London 2013!

Hi all - I set the race up for online entry over a week ago but as I don't subscribe to RW was not aware you couldn't enter online!  I have urgently emailed them this morning to sort the issue!

RW Online Registration open for business!

I am in again, God knows why! This is a great race, especially good training for anybody doing London as this course is a little bit more demanding.

Chesterfield Bill, how demanding is the course? I've not done this race before, is it a similar course to the Thanet marathon, without the extra 6.2 miles or is it a totally different course?

It is a different course completely. There are a couple of nasties, but they tend to be fairly "abrupt" rather than long and steady. The 20 does not go out in the Minnis Bay direction. It is a good race, I am sure you will enjoy it.

the course for last year's race is on ths link...

http://www.coursemeasurement.org.uk/detail.php?area=South&no=2012032

it won't be quite the same this year, as we're going to Broadstairs first, and missing out the loops around the start. It's being measured this weekend, so I'll have it on the website in due course. It is good that it takes in the Ramsgate end of Thanet. am I going to run it - we'll have to see....

Thanks Chestfield Bill and Ed Heardman - that's really helpful.

As CB suggests, I'll be using this as VLM preparation.

My entry is completed and in an envelope ready to send. I just need to get to the post office to buy a large envelope stamp for the SAE.

Can I hand in my entry at the duathlon on Sunday or do I need to buy another stamp?

Keir you can hand it to me on Sunday - I'll be at registration

11/01/2013 at 09:45

Thanks JFDI, but I decided to treat myself and put it into the post box. 

14/01/2013 at 09:42

\Nice to see you yesterday Keir and CONGRATULATIONS on your first place!!!!

Thanks JFDI. And thanks to all of your club who took the trouble to stand in the frreezing cold to direct / cheer us on.
