i have just tried to put my application and was about half way through and clicked off the page by accident. i then went back in and it still had the form half completed so finished it and uploaded the photo but when i submitted it already said i has submitted a application . please help as if it did submit before there would be half the information missing.
thanks sam jones
I completed the form but I didn't get a confirmation email or anything so I hope I'm in (although having applied for the marathon coaching things for the past goodness how many years I don't suppose I'll get in anyway!).
Good luck to everyone
I am considering an application however I am only able to commit during the day (9 - 4) on the 2nd of December if long listed and unable to commit on the 17th of December and January training session if further selected. I am reluctant to apply in view of the above although acknowledge that this will be a rather competitive prize draw. Will there be any compromise in my application and / or selection if longlisted in view of the above?
Edgar after last year where people already had comittments........i think this year they stated that you had to be free for all the dates.........
but good luck anyway
I've been trying and trying to enter but am stuck, I can do it all except the photo. Every time I fill it all in and attach a photo it says it's too large. Then I can't take it off without starting all over again. And all my photos are apparently too large! I've done it over and over...
What shall I do? Will it be accepted if the photo is too big?
I finally did it! A more technically-minded friend sent me a photo she had taken of me at Raceforlife this year and it worked!
The first hurdle is over.. good luck everyone!
This is a fantastic competition and a great prize. Help to achieve your running dream - couldn't get any better. Submitted the form last week and just have to wait now to hear.
Anyone hazard a guess as to how many people will apply?
the reason I want to win is simple. I want to finish in a decent time, with a team of people at the top of their sport giving the advice and support I need to do a marathon in 4.30.
Did my first marathon last year for my Dad who has alzheimers. Did the training on my own. Did a 20 miler in 3.30 seven weeks before LVM and only managed a 5.29 on the day. So in theory the last six miles, on the day, took about an hour to long. That is not good enough, that will need to be rectified and I will do it in Paris.
At the age of 51 time is not exactly on my side but I believe I can do it.
Oh this would be a dream come true!
After running my first marathon a month ago (Loch Ness) I am now desperate to train harder and more holisticaly and enter another. Would definately focus more on nutrition and core strengthening for my next marathon and the chance to take part in a competition which offers training in this would be phenomenal. Would commit 110% if given the chance, but also will look forward to following those who do get through on this Forum if I'm not one of the (VERY) lucky ones. Good Luck everybody. The fact that I run in Gel cumulus and love asics style would be the icing on the cake.
Malcolm - there is a saying that the marathon is 2 races in one; the first 20 then the last 6 - it's so true and its being in a position to do the last 6 that the training is really all about, plus ramming in some carbs to get through 20 miles with strength left.
I've done 8 marathons now and at age 58 am still trying to beat 4 hrs - like you, I believe I can do it with the right prep so keep your spirits up and keep training.
Good luck in the competition as well. Let's hope we both get to boot camp !!!
I've entered. Would LOVE to win it but surely there'll be stacks of entries! Oh well, gotta be in it to win it - Good luck everyone!
Just submitted my application. Just the thought of having the experience of preparing for my 1st marathon in a team of runners, is out of this world.
Fingers and toes crossed
If you are not sure that you have entered, go back to the application page and it should say something along the lines of 'you have already entered this competition thank you'. No guarentee that your entry has made it through the virtual web, but it's the best you'll get if you don't get an email.
You could try checking your spam filter. Unfortunately I don't receive any emails from RW anymore. I think they get shot down in flames. I post too much I think my mail program sniff RW mails out at 100 paces.
Anyway hope everyones who wants to enter gets their entry in. Good luck to you all and don't forget to keep posting on the forums.
Spitfire: maybe uncross your toes, you might trip while running.
