Let the search for our six-strong team begin...
If this doesnt motivate you...what will??!! Im putting in an application
oh I would love to but would get shouted at because I would have to try and hide my cross training "bit" (cough)
shall I shant I .........
Would really really love to be chosen as I was gutted to be rejected and am more than happy to bear my soul at regular intervals. Opportunity of a lifetime
Sent my application off
Even if I don't get picked hopefully I can live the training vicariously through whoever does. Much less effort I think!
Do you know if the entrants will share much of the training tips on the forum or a dedicated page? It would be good to see how much work the professionals line them up with and I wasn't around this time last year to see the previous lot.
I cant wait to enter, am really excited about the marathon this year, intrested to see how Virgin sponsoring the marathon will change things.
I've entered too, it would be fantastic to be trained by athletes of that calibre.
I met Paul in 2007 at an England Athletics training day in Essex, very motivating human being, it was a tough training session but he made it fun at the same time! I remember he had us run out around the edge of a sports field at a good pace, when the whistle sounded we had to sprint in the opposite direction to get back to the start faster than the run out. I'm shure he was taking a few seconds off with each effort back though!!
Good luck to all!
Me too. I'd love to strike a blow for us oldies by doing this.
I found reading last year's blogs inspirational and would love to be able to do that for others. The interaction must be pretty motivational for the participants and the people reading them.
It would also be amazing to meet Liz, Steve and Paul. Liz Yelling was at a Richmond Parkrun that I took part in but I never got a chance to speak to her. She seemed so modest and friendly though.
I have applied - you have to apply to stand a chance and the best of luck to anyone else applying.
I look forward to reading about those who are successful.
have applied. the threads were all inspirational last year and I will follow the 4h30 one this year whether I'm writing it or not!
(Liam FYI 3 of the 6 started this year. think this rant has been done elsewhere already... and the 4h30 schedule was definitely tailored for the individual who ran it. )

Clarification for all concerned please.. does 'registered member' of RW.co.uk etc mean existing members (with some history on the forums) or anyone who registers now so as to, opportunistically as it were, enter the competition??
A very good point I was thinking the same. I have been a runnersworld member for a while now but never posted on the forum really before. And in regards to the member who didnt put there name on entry form, I dont think this matters to much because, like myself not everyone has a forum nickname.
Good luck all
Thanks to everyone who has submitted an application form so far. In terms of being a registered member, we just need you to have a site profile from the off. As in previous years, we're welcoming submissions from both regular forum users and those who are new to posting (but have lots to contribute...).
Hope that helps and good luck!
