Looks.

Different criteria for the different runners:

I've gone for Knight Rider as he's a regular poster on the 3h15 thread and I think would do well to host a thread on his own which is one of the major points of the competition

I've gone for Choisty as I want to read about a fast runner trying to go faster, especially as he's gunnign for Championship qualification

I've gone for Rosie A as she's done 12 marathons in 12 months so is no newbie and her profile is screaming out for someone to give her a structure.

The other two categories don't interest me in the slightest so I haven't voted in them

Basically, Rosie A is similar to in terms of time to where I started out when I was running marathons, Knight Rider is where I was when I did the SSX comp and I'm now nearer to Choisty in terms of ability

 Hopefully having had their fingers burnt with bad choices of online mentors over the past couple of years and having been exposed with the selection procedures of candidates, RW have tightened up the competition to make it better all round. I don't care about how new they are to the forums, in some cases I think the newer posters actually make better hosts.

thats me out then

Primarily on whether I can relate to them or not.  I might not be the same ability as them, or have the same goals but are they likely to provide me with any new ideas or tips?  Will the fast runners understand and be sensitive to the slower runners?  Will the slower runners take it seriously?

So I guess my main criteria is that they will be engaging on the forum and sensitive to others.  I would not vote for someone who's first post said something like 'I train 16 hours a week and think that anyone who does less than that is pathetic' for example as I doubt that they would ahve anything else interesting for me to read.

Running aims - not necessarily similarity to mine (that only takes care of one category) but the candidates that I think have the most interesting aims.

I don't really care about length of time on the forum or number of posts before this competition, I'm more interested in what they are hoping to achieve in the Paris marathon, although it is interesting to get a bit more detail on PBs for different distances.

It should be based on size of beard
Sorry Ladies

Ladies have beards too...just not in the same place.....

I was thinking the same thing, but I am too sweet and innocent to post something like that.

One of my ex girlfriends had a ladybeard and sideburns
Still waxing wasnt invented then

I'll vote for someone who is honest about why they want to win and doesn't promise to stay around afterwards. Actually they'll get my vote if they say they won't be sticking around afterwards and have a genuine reason, like having a life

If it's based on looks, I may as well call a taxi now
06/12/2011 at 18:24
i tend to vote for anyone who comes across as genuinely serious about giving it their all & try their best to achieve their goal, as in previous years i've always voted this way & the grand total in the past years of the one's i've voted for who've achieved this is er.......none. Nevermind, maybe this time it'll be more of a success
