I was wondering if this would start up again, then that guy would come back and rant incessantly about the fact he is never given a shot, blah blah blah. Can't remember his name, but he was a royal pain...

*waves to LN* Hello my dear, how are you?

Here's a though, what I might do if I was High Emperor and Ruler of the World and all its subsidiary companies.

Instead of Super Six, have RW Challengers. Basically anyone can join, all they are required to do is to follow one of the variety of training plans that RW has written specifically for the London marathon. Nutrition tips, how to remain injury free advice etc, would be given online. On the day the Challengers wear a special RW Challengers shirt. Anyone can join.

At the end we all see how many people hit their target.

Voila, a good platform for RW to justify their generic training plans. Just as much if not more publicity on the day and MORE people get access to training and stuff.

All the experts have to do is offer their sage advice on the forum.

That's a really good idea.

It would also give RW the opportunity to facilitate people in adapting the generic plans to personal specifics.

And with a wider participation rate you generate more interest and the success rate of reaching goals would increase in all likelihood.

IMHO anyway

I think that is an excellent idea.  I'd love to have the expert advice but know that I can't do the amount of miles required for the time I achieve so will never be accepted as a Super-Six runner..  Therefore, I cobble together a training plan from a RW plan plus other advice from forumites.  In the last 2 years I have achieved my times from scaled down plans.

Having a "Challenger" scheme would give more people access to quality advice but would also not heap the massive amount of pressure that the Super-Sixers have obviously had to enjoy come race day each year.

I'd bet that more "Challengers" would reach their goal times.

Did I neglect to mention my little jog from Blackheath to her Madge's house next year?

I find Asics gets stuck in my throat.

And Lucozade bottles are a bugger to wear on your feet.

I should point out its a 26.2 mile one as well.

Not according to your 405 it won't be....

Mr LB ran Washington Marine corps a couple of weeks ago and the 405 said 26.9!

I think he must have got distracted and ran straight through the Oval office.

The Super Six is something whose time has gone.

Like zeppelin making. And rickets.
