Hi everyone, my husband is looking for a place in the Edinburgh Marathon if someone can't do it and is having to pull out he would take their place and pay any fee due for it.
He missed out the last 2yrs due to illness as he had a tumour in his lung and had to get the bottom third of his lung removed and was hoping to make his come back this year but missed the cut off.
If anyone can help, can you let me know.
You'll have to get to the back of the queue - the forum has been awash with people wanting an Edinburgh place because they didn't get their act together and enter in time.
Wouldn't it have been prudent to have applied anyway, just in case?
If he couldn't run in the end, he could then have transferred the place to someone else.
Thanks Redjeep, some people are great at saying things, but unless you are in the position he was in, then you never would know what you would do. He was waiting on the all-clear and wants to do it to prove to himself he can still cut it, although in a very much slower time than he has completed it in previous years.
Thanks Emmy and Minni. Will keep an eye on things. He wanted to do Edinburgh as he has completed 2 Edinburgh marathons. He looked at Loch Ness, but it takes place 3 days after we come back from 2 weeks in Turkey.
Hi Michelle! Emmy H kindly shared your post. Just today I made a hard decision not to run Edinburgh this year as I've overcommitted myself with studying and work and starting my own business. I've ran the race past 2 years and have loved it both times.
As I've explained in my post, I'm not looking to make any money from selling my entry, I would just like to make back what I paid (which was £44 for early bird entry). There will be another £10 transfer fee that you'd have to pay to organisers when you accept the transfer.
If your husband is happy to take my place drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or give me a call tomorrow 07716269914.
My husband will gladly take your place in the marathon. I will get him to give you a call in the morning to sort out the details and arrange to get the entrance fee to you. Thanks again. I wiil get him to email you tonight.
Will do Minni, he is happy that he is getting the chance to run now.
