Blimey, named checked in a thread at last. It only took 12 months. From this day I no longer class myself as a newbie runner. I am a runner (who is prepared to take a walk break if needs must).

Thats not true Also Ran, I saw your name mentioned in another thread, but to be honest, because I think youre a nice guy, Im hesitant to post the link to it.

Whats with your obsession over categories anyway DF3; whether someone has ran/walk/shuffled doesnt really matter. At least they had the bottle to enter and do it.

You were looking for a marathon in London... The Thames Meander Marathon - in August.

Nut up or shut up.

The thing is if other athletic events adopted the same rules as 'marathon runners', you would end up with a high jump event where the competitor was allowed to use a chair jump off to help them out, or a shotput where they can use a lighter shot because the heavier one is a 'bit harder'.

Why should the rules be watered down so some office worker in Milton Keynes who goes to the gym twice a week can put themselves in the same category as a RicF or a PhilPub or even our very own Stevie G and Also-ran???

yeah baby you tell em!

Although in fairness I don't do marathons, and have no will to ever do one

Ha! thats true, I was hoping you had forgotten about that one.

David, didn't you say in another thread that you failed to complete half marathon distance the first few times you tried? Running a marathon won't feel like you've only run two halve's.
