Have entered the ballot for several years and am a sub 3.30 runner so not sure about the time thing. The biggest con is the good for age I would have to run sub 3.05 a which is tough going whereas a woman only has to run 3.45 which due half decent club runner could do. The gfa should be scrapped to make extra places for us mortals.
Hi Alli me and a friend are doing Rome in march. If your looking at doing Rome decide quickly as there is a six nations rugby match the same weekend in Rome so cheapish accom is running out fast. But the idea of running in the eternal city is so appealing.
Why can't they make the event bigger, we are talking about the largest city in the country that holds massive sporting events on a regular basis not some back water. The great north run had 55k participants this year and Newcastle ain't that big!!!
The five strikes and your in was withdrawn a few years back, the whole thing is a farce. I have applied for the last 7 years and only had one successful entry, had to defer and they messed that up. Ok London is the one everybody wants to do but as the number of people who want to do it grows the event doesn't.
