Got my official email,which told me what I already knew. Entered the competition for one of 10 places, do think I should get another entry in that ballot as I knew the answer without having to check the magazine! Then again think that defeats the purpose as I'm sure the competition is only there to make you look at the ezine!

I have another way you can try - it'll tell you whether you have the email rejection or not - so not a definite yes but would mean better odds?


Go into any email you have received from Virgin Money London marathon. On the red banner at the top there is an 'unsubscribe' option - click into that and it will list all the newsletters you're subscribed to.


If you are going to get the ezine email rejection, it will list "2017 e zine" as one of your subscriptions. Just another game to play - will mean some of us are put out of our misery sooner?


I don't have the ezine but couldn't pay using the link so assume I'm a no again.....


Interesting catch! I have the e-zine link so guess I'm not in!

Carrying ID when you are on a run

I always have my phone one me. May have to start taking pictures of cats, though they do mostly run away from me when I'm out running!

Do you prefer to plan your routes or are you more spontaneous?

I mostly plan my routes in advance, or have a rough idea where I will be going. On some of my longer marathon runs the route was flexible as I needed to be able to add a bit if I hadn't quite got up to distance.

Anyone know if there Is a Yorkshire 10 mile this year?

Actually it is on the website, but no link to enter and no date/time (though I assume from the runbritain page it would be 9th Oct at 10:15)

Last year there was a 10 mile event on the same day as the Yorkshire marathon. Does anyone know if this is happening again this year? I can find a link on RunBritain to a race licence, but there seems to be nothing on the Yorkshire Marathon website about it.

Good to see lots of people are ahead of target. 

As we approach the half way point I am on 487. Projected miles for the year: 999! Just need to find a mile somewhere. 

Evening run

I'm not a morning person so I always run in the evening. Even then, to get me motivated I have to go straight from work. Once I've got home and sat on the sofa it's hard to get out again! Also have you considered joining a running club? They tend to meet in the evening and having people to meet could give you extra motivation.

Hope everyone is doing well with their target. Looking very close there Harmander! 

I haven't been to this thread in a while after a poor May (25 miles total for the month!) due to a post marathon foot injury. Seems better now but I've lost all the cushion I'd built up in early months. Still, even with that bad month I'm 70 miles ahead of this time last year and projected mileage for the year 1005. Just need to stick at it for the next 6 months.....

How do you target a race, when you think a pb is definitely off the cards?

Am trying to decide how to approach HM on Sunday, so thought I'd see how others usually approach this...
