How hard is it?
Haha, I'd probably get you round for sub 1hr 23 ok, but I expect the splits would be a ridiculous story of too fast start, average middle and fast end!
So how do you know what the GFA times are for ladies under 40, given they give a range of 3.15 - 3.50? Do they work it out depending on how many GFA entries they have? Although it's more difficult for the guys, at least they set out the times, it seems very opaque for the ladies.
That is the range you will have to be in (3.15 - 3.50). If you beat 3.15 in a qualifying race then you will be on the Championship start (also sub 1.30 half will qualify for this).
Helly- I think sub 3:15 for a lady will get you a champs start and sub 3:50 is GFA. It does not depend on number of entries, it is just a matter of getting the GFA time to qualify. This is why the male times are tougher because a lot more men run and therefore more are capable of getting these times.
