When can you claim it?gun or chip
I have set myself an aspirational target of meeting the "Good for Age" time at my local half (in Bath). I probably won't make it as it means lopping 5 minutes of my time last March but a question came to me. Do you have to achieve it with the Gun time or the Chip time? I
For me there is a faint hope of making 1:35 on chip time but no chance at all of making it on gun time (it took 5 minutes to get to the start last March).
Can anyone advise?

Chip time is fine though.
LOL... let him down gently Cougs!
I'm not going to be running in the London Marathon, just the Bath Half. The elite start time is sub 70 minutes for a man of my age, for which I would need a bike.
The, now called, "Best for Age" start requires a 1:35 time and gets you into a special pen, just behind the Elite. Never having been anywhere near these times before I was intrigued by the rules around them.
Anyway it is only an aspiration, I'll be very happy with sub 1:40
go for it old chap! You never know, aim for the stars and achieve top of the world.
