New York Marathon GFA qualification

Posted: 19/02/2016 at 09:53

I think I will head for a week, and can get it for £310 with avios, but hoping to wait for a BA sale and maybe pick them up for hopefully around £340-50 and save the points... fortunately we have ages to wait!

OK thank you - fingers crossed then. I actually sent my submission without the link to my Wokingham time, but instantly sent a follow up email with it, but I haven't heard anything back so far. Didn't realise it was not how far under you were which is a shame as was 3.5 minutes under the half time which I hoped would be enough of a buffer

Do you mind me asking what the time was and what category? I also sent a half time from Wokingham last year, but was worried this this may be viewed less favourably than a full marathon qualification time

Have just sent my GFA time off, still not quite sure what this means though and how likely I am of obtaining a place. Is it purely FCFS or is it based on lowest qualification times? Registration opened a couple of weeks ago so fear I may have missed my opportunity

Ironman UK 2016

Will also get up for a recce or two from about March time onwards. Ran the course but didn't get to ride it last year before i had to pull out. 

Mick I would try and find a half IM around around early June for a good test run. I have two half distances in 3 weeks around then which as well as racing should mean some good training as well

Starting to think about the Full, but don't want to enter until probably, so hopefully (and can't imagine it will) it won't sell out, not before then anyway

Running Clubs around Greenwich/ Canary Wharf

@philpub - bringing this one out of the history books but it the post ranks highly on a Google search for Greenwich running clubs. Are you still involved with the club?What other days do they run on, or is it only based in the track session on Tuesday's? Cheers

Could be a challenge over the weekend though. Especially as tomorrow will be spent watching the rugby at Twickenham. Going to be difficult to eat anything that isn't a burger and chips I fear!

Double up on the burger (w/o bun) and bin the chips - easy!


That will be the plan and what I did earlier in the week when eating out. Much easier to do midweek when working away though (as somebody else is paying for dinner)


May cheat over the weekend for a couple of beers though I guess. (Though I think these are allowed, which I do disagree with)
