Didn't mean to be a party pooper but if the organisers knew of any numbers which were being transferred 'illegally' they could use their 'bouncers' to stop that runner during the race. Again, it has been known to happen.
I don't think there is a waiting list. Is a good idea up to a certain time before the race otherwise would be a logistical nightmare. They do need to have the correct name of the number wearer in case of that runner being involved in an emergency.
Incidentally it looks like I won't be able to take part and my number will be unused (unless my podiatrist works wonders).
