is it or not???
I've got mine too. It also says championship. My time was 2:58. No suspect the championship bit is an error.
Mine says Championship too! Maybe we've all been upgraded...not!
I too got an email saying Championship place.
The time to panic is when you receive a bib with your surname written across rather than a race number.
GFA entry acceptance notification by email today.
Deadline to accept 5pm 26th July 2013
Mine also says Championship! It would be really funny rocking up there as a 67 year old woman!
Finally got it and paid.
Ok back from hols and I'm in and paid.
Anyone doing Amsterdam as an autumn marathon? I doing it with my son (his first one so looking forward to that) it gets some good reviews.
Did Amsterdam 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. Start and finish in the stadium is great. Can be tough if its windy but flat so potential pb. Nowhere near as much support as London but that's not the main consideration for me.
Agree, the large noisy crowds are great but sometimes a little distracting. I really enjoy a quiet marathon like Abingdon with little support but you get to chat with fellow runners a bit more!
I chose Amsterdam as a flat course for my son but I imagine will be a liitle exposed with strong winds.
On good for age for London when is the measure of the age in the age range (say 50-59) is it:
- the date you set the time
- the date you apply for the race
- the date you race
I think it is the latter. So can you set a 50-59 3:20 qualifying time the year before when you are 49?
It goes by your age on race day, so I believe you can Wenty,
I've just discussed this on p and d site. I will be 39 next year. If I run a sub 3.15 at 39 or 40 can I use it as a gfa at 41.
Lit seems to think there was someone on a previous p and d thread that hit the time the year before and then used it as gfa.
Unless they change the rules again, it's always been age on the day of the race (VLM) that counts. So yes, you can run a GFA qualifying time for 50-59 when you're 49.
