That's funny that because I have an email dated 9th Sept. My point is not that it has been cancelled but firstly I have to ask to get my money back and I have a deadline otherwise I loose it altogether, and secondly no reply after 2/3 emails asking questions regarding the refund. Funny how they are so quick to take the money but I have to do all the leg work to get MY money back.
Oh please... Of course they are quick to take the money. It's how online payments work. And just about any refund via a debit or credit card takes a few days.
You've asked for a refund. they are giving you a refund. They have told you not to chase the refund but you've ignored that and then taken exception to not getting a reply. I really fail to see the issue?
To be honest I think it's piss poor to announce it so close to the date. Most events seem to be of the opinion that they'd rather you didn't but accept that some will use them. Other events explicitly state that it's not allowed meaning that those that use them can make an informed decision. If you've made the decision that they are allowed then stick with it.
I ran the Luton half last year and they announced on the start line that they were banned. The FAQs stated they were allowed, the email 2 days before the race said they were allowed, there was nothing at the HQ saying they weren't allowed... Funily enough everyone that was planning on running with headphones ignored it and no one was disqualified
Cool, seems weird to have a different route in the library advertising it but that's going to be fun. Run past the end of my road at around 16 miles... I need to way up the pros and cons of whether to run the route frequently in training as it would be around 14 miles and once the dark nights are here much of that is my normal training routes.
How is everyone elses training going? I'm roughly where I want to be and improving. 4 days away and on the piss seems to have rejuvenated me rather than broken me!
