Lit - thanks for all answers. Just to check the above can you also defer a GFA entry even if it is no longer within the time scale?
Mrs Skinny is pretty wonderful but I think even she will raise an eyebrow if I pay out £50 (or whatever it is) for 2016, £50 for 2017 and still haven't actually run and then pay out another £50 for 2018.
I have a current GFA valid for 2016 and 2017 but I don't think I will be running the 2016 edition although I think the scars may have healed for 2017.
So I'm looking for some deferral advice.
If I enter now for 2016 then the most likely outcome is that I will defer. But then if I get injured before 2017 then I can't defer my entry to 2018 as you can only defer once.
But if I enter for 2017 then my GFA time will already have run out before 2018 so does that mean I won't be able to defer anyway in which case I may as well enter this year to ensure that any changes to the GFA goals won't affect me? Or once you are entered is that entry valid for a deferral irrespective of the fact that the GFA that allowed you that entry would have run out?
On the website for deferrals it only talks about Ballot Entries being eligible for deferral - does that mean you can't defer a GFA entry?
And if you defer your entry do you have to pay again?
I'm struggling to pin down the answer from the website but if no-one actually knows (I know a few of you have deferred so just thought you might) then I'll post a question on the GFA thread.
