Think the requirements for women have eased slightly over the past few years and are not as tough as others like, say, Boston? My guess is the women's times are more attainable to encourage more women to run? We're still very outnumbered at London (2:1?)
Well done you if you were close to 3h50 -you have until June to hit it to get a GFA for next year - worth a shot at a smaller marathon?
so you want london to be first come first served - unlike all other majors? This just couldn't work - without major changes to all the GFA, championship and club entry processes - all seems a bit OTT when it's working ok now?
