We now have about 350 places left for the Half Marathon. It may sound a lot but we are currently receiving about 200 entries a week. We will soon close down postal entries and the remaining places will be online only. If you are posting an entry form we suggest you send it First Class.
We remind entrants to the half marathon that they are not able to switch/upgrade to the full marathon or Transfer their half marathon entry to someone wanting to do the full marathon.
We have now closed entry to the Full Marathon as we have reached our limit. This has been achieved earlier than expected. There is no reserve list. We have places left for the Half Marathon.
If you enter the Half Marathon after the 3 February 2010 we will not accept a request to switch/upgrade to the Full Marathon. In fixing our entry limit we have anticipated a certain number of cancellations and no shows on the day.
Entrants are permitted to Transfer their entry to another person and so if you now want to enter the Full Marathon, you will have to find someone with a Full Marathon entry who cannot run. This must be done strictly in accordance with our terms – please see Transfer Request form under Entry Forms on our website and FAQ 2. The Runners World forum for our event may be a good place to look but you must note that it is up to you and the transferor to agree terms and we must then approve the transfer.
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL FOR A PLACE IN THE FULL MARATHON
As you are all aware the Marathon is full. The organisers have taken extra entries to allow for the normal drop out so no reserve list will be compiled. The 1/2M is filling fast as well. There is an opportunity to have a marathon race number transferred from another runner, see the FAQs on the organisers website http://www.shakespearemarathon.org.uk for details.
You can check if your entry has been received and accepted on our website http://www.jandresults.co.uk (follow the link on botton LHS of Home page). Todays update contains all the Marathon entries that have been accepted. If you are not on this list and you have sent an entry form by post it will be rejected.
