I'm selling my place in this years's Abingdon Marathon as I won't be able to run due to injury. The FAQ on the Abingdon Marathon website says it's ok to transfer, we just have to email the organisers with the details.

First person to PM with their email address can have the place for £40, which was the original price I paid.

P + D training for VLM 2013

Barcelona was excellent last year. I'd definitely recommend it. Only downside was it got quite hot for the second half. Think it was around 21 degrees on the day. Great city though and really good course. To me it felt slightly flatter than London.

I'm thinking of signing up for Amsterdam. Any one on here done that one?

Thanks for signing guys. I agree I don't think it will make a difference but might as well try.

And yes, it is a terribly worded petition... ("We are partitioning Virgin that...")

Mark - the people who are most annoyed are those that purposely paced themselves for a 'safe' 3.09, having been assured by VLM HQ that the times woudn't change. I actually think 3.05 is a better benchmark for 18-39 but really feel sorry for those who had a master plan to sneak under GFA this time to go for a faster time in 2014.

There's a petition against the VLM GFA changes here:

Even if you don't feel that strongly about it, consider signing it for me - the creator of the greatest marathon training thread in history!


London Marathon 2014 GFA

Me too! Phoned them one week ago and they practically promised me GFA times wouldn't change. So much for my 3.09...

Dammit GFA goalposts have been moved after I was assured by the marathon office last week it would stay the same. My 3.09 is now no good, male 18 - 40 now sub 3.05
