A great prize & challenge
I can personally vouch that this is a top quality experience. What I have learned this year and gained from this experience will stay with me forever!! For those unaware of this competiton get yourself registered and apply for it. Be genuine in your application and get on the forums to build up your presence.The coaching for Steve Smythe, Sam Murphy, Ruth Mc Kean, Sarah Connors & Victor are worth their weight in gold.
I loved my time doing this and the the wealth of knowledge, experience, generiousity involved just goes beyond anything you could imagine. I wish I could do it all again! For those lucky 5 that get picked I am soo jealous and pleased for you. If in doubt just apply, you have nothing to loose.
This is a true, genuine runner's experience - enjoy the whole process !
Just read about this in this months magazine, tried to register my interest, but tells me the competition has ended
I had the same problem - gutted
From memory there was an online application last year which I think went up after. It looks like by doing the register your interest you get a chance to win a pair of ASICS shoes. Competition hasn't ended as it hasn't started!
Just completed the Town Moor marathon, and hungry for the next one! Registered my interest yesterday, this is an incredible opportunity!
Dont think they go in for mature chaps of 50 though it would be nice to get to Paris and us more mature runners have more cash apparently Asics if you are reading this you need an older chaps presence.........
Good luck to all those that apply.
It sounds such a great opportunity to learn! I sent my entry today. Good luck people!
mcs - go for it again dude! I think you would be an excellent candidate.
to knight rider, What happens at the boot camp stage? I have applied. Fingers croosed for me. It will be a dream come true
to knight rider, What happens at the boot camp stage? I have applied. Fingers croosed for me. I will be running my first marathon in May. Could do with lots of help lol
It's a certainly nail biting week Heather waiting to find out.
Hi Jen, don't want to spoil it too much, but it's a good day out meeting the other runners and coaches. You can also pick up some good tips too as they give you a few running based tests to do. It's not meant to be too competitive as they aren't necesarily looking for the fastest runners etc, but more the individual and their story/aspirations.
I think it would be pretty exciting just to get to the bootcamp stage! To have access to coaches who can set you in the right direction for this type of event would be an amazing experience. Now like Heather I must put this to the back of my mind now and try to keep my expectations in check. Did they tell you how many people entered last year Knight Rider?
Ant B1 - you're right, you have to enter to have a chance!
Warbs, I think there was something like 1600 - 1800 applicants last year. The experience was fantastic and it's good to go into it with an open mind and take on board all the advice. The bootcamp was a brilliant experience in itself, just meeting other runners after the same goal and all very nice peeps too.
RunnyRunRun - the waiting is the worst part!
