Has anyone found out about the results yet??

They'll probably tell them to keep posting pretending to be

I know last year when it went straight to voting my friend was told to stay schtum.  I found out a day or so after I saw her at a race.

I think it will be MUMS THE WORD.

I wouldn't have any time for anyone who did that.

Ok, very fair enough to keep quiet about something but I don't think anything warrants lying about it.

is it possible someone from runners world could at least confirm they have made some phone calls??????

To keep your mind off the selection process and any phone call you may or may not get I have come up with a few songs with a theme of time or getting (OR NOT) a place :

CLOCKS - COLDPLAY 

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO HURT ME - CULTURE CLUB

TELEPHONE  ALWAYS RINGS - FUN BOY THREE

TIME (CLOCK OF THE HEART) - CULTURE CLUB

HELP! - BEATLES

IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE - TAKE THAT

Now its over to you ..........

HANGING ON THE TELEPHONE (Blondie)..

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS (very optimistic one there!!!!)

Hello Super Six hopefuls!

I am going to put you all out of your misery/conspiracy theories to confirm that we will be calling the lucky selection day attendees by the end of the week.

I'm afraid I can't say any more at this point, except to thank you for all your applications and ask you to be patient!

Hope that clears things up!

Alice thanks for that, though I reckon that gives us two days of misery and plenty of time to think up a few more conspiracy theories.  Just following on from one of the many threads on here, what sort of chocolate do you eat?

They'll be calling by the end of the week?!?!?  More waiting!   

Alice, can you hint as to whether you've started calling people yet?!?  Or are all of the calls going to be within a set period of a day, perhaps Friday?

24/11/2010 at 11:56

Cheers Alice.

I shall, therefore, officially be giving up hope of a parisienne plod at midnight on friday..........until then......anything is possible!!!

Does anyone know how many will be chosen for boot camp???  Will Simon Cowell be there??? Will we have to sing??? Oh noooooooooo my chances are slipping away here!!

24/11/2010 at 11:57
Thanks Alice did you get my earlier message about putting the wrong aim time on the application form???
24/11/2010 at 11:59

Time - Anthrax

Ric - I'm sure they will be waiting until they have the entire list done and then sitting down with a list and making the calls in one session

Now you can all start debating whether it will be in alphabetic call order and if so by first name, surname or forum name

Or maybe in time categories and THEN alphabetical, or shoe size related???
24/11/2010 at 12:10
@Shawrie - I did get your message, thanks for that. With regard to target times, we do take into account a number of factors including your PBs and running history as well as the target time you put so don't worry - the success or otherwise of your application won't have been affected.
24/11/2010 at 12:17
USB - that would make sense! Although I guess we dont know whether the decisions have been made yet... Unless I missed that which is possible!

Shoe size, numerical order of phone numbers, postcode, from north to south... Too many options!!
24/11/2010 at 12:25

Don't forget hat  size in that list.

Have to say Alice dragged a few of you out from slumber!
