just been conned out of £100
Taking another's number can get you banned too so be careful out there. I've never done GNR just because of the cost...I tend to vote with my wallet. Did defer FLM in 1999 due to broken ankle and did not get deferred place as next up was the millennium so went on to 2001 and paid again
Lots of races do have transfer policies, the Edinburgh Marathon do and it works well and is good for customer relations. We run as a family and its always going to happen someone is going to get injured and the costs are going up all the time for races. Local races and fell races are the way forward I think now. £4 to do a fell race in our village the money goes to Edale Mountain Rescue Team, no one makes any money. There is first aiders on the course and local people provide food and drink, timed finishing value or what!!!
