does the Sub 3 thing come from anywhere in particular?
I mean boston qualification, London GFA etc tends to be 3:05, 3:15 etc for most blokes, and you need 2:45 for a championship start.
What does 3:00:00 correspond to other than a round number?
It used to be the fastest GFA requirement for London before they went all soft. Now it's just a good old round number. A bit like a 10 second 100 metres, but more achievable.
