Clearly seeking clarification and reassurance from fellow runners, when none was forthcoming from the organisers in response to others who'd already put the question to them on facebook, deserves such nonsense!
Clearly I have no idea of this race that's why I'm asking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thankfully someone more community spirited sent me a message saying that it didn't open til late February last year though the date had already been announced at this point in time.
I won't be coming back here to tell you how amazing it was and how I'll be doing it again as I won't! There are plenty of others on my list and I certainly wouldn't waste my time communicating with the likes of yourself.
Yet another to leave RW forums - bye! Waste of space!
Another tidbit which has appeared (on facebook) is that they have sponsor issues which must be a nightmare... Anyone else heard anything? Am sure they could put their prices up a bit to help. They're certainly "cheap" as marathons go but I'd rather pay a bit more for quality organisation.
It's all seeming a bit shoddy... expected it to be so much more slick with Salomon putting its name to the event.
Can anyone remember when it opened last year? Am wondering if this is just a one off which makes it a little more forgivable - am sure every event has its glitches at some point...
Wish our lives were that easy - I have a limited choice of weekends. Don't mind if they don't open entries until nearer the time just as long as I know when it is so I don't waste my precious chances to race away from home. So I need to get it in the diary...
Anyone know if the event organisation is usually this lax (not so much as a date announcement yet)? How trustworthy are the organisers? Is the race itself better organised than the entries?
There is a (reliable) rumour that the event will be on the 1st weekend of October and that entries were due to open by Christmas. They haven't!
Am not sure whether to wait or to commit to something else. Would have done TMW which could arguably compete for "Britain's Most Beautiful" but it's full now.
Normally have my main race of the year entered by New Year so we can plan and coordinate work, diaries and life.
Not many races these dates aren't considerate enough to at least give you a heads up on the date. Is this normal? Anyone got any experience? No word on facebook - plenty of folks asking but as yet no response...
