Morning all, No idea what the op entails Ale, but doesn't sound much fun what - easy lunchtime run why - wooden legs. Hard session last night: 5min tempo/90s recovery/5x1min fast, 45s recovery after each/5min tempo/90s recovery/5x1min fast, 45s recovery after each/5min tempo. A 'favourite' devised by Bud Baldaro when he gave a flying visit a few years ago.

They've said all along that they want a cross section, taken to extremes if it was entirely random, they could have an all male, 3h15 -3h30 set of runners. The old form you sent off had age, estimated finish time and gender, so I imgaine they sort on that basis then take a selection from each pile. As for those that donate the fee, it's easier enough to filter out those that ticked the box and those that didn't for round 2.
