Tigger that is brilliant news - so pleased for you!

Stan - sorry to hear you didnt get a call. If only I had that kind of influence, I'd have you all in!

Good luck tomorrow Hans!

I knocked 26 mins off my PB following Ady's thread the year before! 

(how's that for a fine bit of mutual back slapping )

Definitely doing a spring marathon Ady, just a question of which one. Fancy Great Welsh again. 

Well done to all those who have had the call - very excited for you! Sorry to those who haven't made it. There is still a possibility of a call on Monday but I appreciate the chances are reducing now. So sorry for booktrunk - really wanted you to make it this year

Andrea B - I'd say that surely qualifies as good news!

Frocker - I know exactly what the tough 5K time trial is. I think some of the others know too but have avoided commenting because they're still having therapy after last year's beasting

Be prepared for a world of pain; to take your body to places you've never been before; to boldly go where no one has been before! 

Steve is usually in charge of this one and believe me he's a harder task master than Lydia Grant. Except sweat is too low a currency for him, you pay in blood when Steve's around!

Oh yeah, be afraid, be very afraid!  

(cue Dr. Evil laugh...)

Yep, I was truly done for fun

The mud makes a huge difference doesn't it? Orpington has become very sloppy recently. I'm using this as an excuse for my drop in speed

Good luck tomorrow Hans!

Anyone from here make bootcamp? SupermanRuns is in, which is great news!

Superman Returns! 

Massive congratulations mon ami. 

Feel really sorry for the guys missing out. Still time yet and you never know, there may be calls on Monday too. If it's not to be then please do stick around, you'll learn alot on these forums by following the campaigns when they get under way. 

Meant to say earlier, very best of luck tomorrow emdee! Glad I'm only jogging round Parkrun

Yep, I was dead and buried last year and then got a late call. Sadly this was because of Clive's misfortune having picked up a foot injury. 

(surely you should have had an automatic entry this year Clive!)

The calls were over a couple of days if I recall so still time yet.

emdee - that is amazing, massive congratulations on making such an awesome milestone *bows down at feet in admiration*

Gingermagic - very well done! Sub 3:30 is the best group

Congratulations Charles! 

In your excitement you may not have spotted that this thread was from last year.

This year's lucky ones are congregating here:

Ruffles - I've said it before, you definitely can do it. Half the battle is believing. 

Moustachioz - congratulations, you're in for a treat!

Carl - it does look like the 3:30 calls are coming in. Don't give up hope yet though. 

booktrunk - you could be right about them working through the categories. Still got my fingers crossed for you.

Ruffles - that's brilliant! I know someone else who'll be there from last year too. Are you in for the 3:30 category?

booktrunk - eek, I'm still hoping for you!

I will indeed be there - but I'm not in the competition though...just in case there was any doubt

Greetings all. Looks like the Bootcamp phone calls may have started. Exciting stuff! Would be brilliant if all of you who entered from here could make it to Bootcamp.

Angela - sorry to hear about the cold. I will be sure to de-louse the youngsters before bringing them along next time

Hans C - there was a guy at Dulwich last week who was avec buggy. Very quick - couldn't catch him. There's a little downhill bit at Dulwich so I had my beady eye on him to see if he was freewheeling but no, he played it completely by the book. 

reikirabbit - any news from work this week? If there is news then I hope it's good news!

Not much running for me this week. Decided to give the foot a break before it gets any worse. I did a gentle 6 miles on Wednesday and had no pain but the tendon was getting tired towards the end. 

Still doesn't feel quite right but I'm tempted by a little jog today to test it out. If all is ok then I may pace Malcs Jr. round parkrun on Saturday.

There have been some phone calls already? Blimey, nail biting!

Hang in there folks, it may take a day or two. Wish you all the very best of luck. 

ShadyClive - great to see you here, hope all is well with you both!

Mmmm, Krispy Kreme...
