Sunnysider I think you have to prove ..... If someone has a 3.00.xx time then one might be able to blag it. I don't have anything to base that on.....but I'd try it. I sent them proof of a 2.58 and they moved me straight away. With 3.07 I'm not sure, but Red is fine, so much quieter than blue. I suggest those in red seeking sub3.15 but just under should move to the back of the red zone and those seeking sub3 should get up as high as possible, possibly in front of the 3 hour pacer (cause they get a bit mobbed)

Yes Urbane Fox ..... good ploy with the Philidelphia race plan .... you take a little off, practice having a good execution and enjoy the experience of running in a new place .... and then you will hopefully recover quicker so you can get cracking on the serious Paris training. I'm hoping to run at least 40 miles Christmas week to limit the mince pie and cheese damage. My spring campaign will only be 9 weeks plus 2 week taper so I have to make it count and have adjusted my expectations.

Heroine, you mean Paris spring Valencia autumn. .... good for you. A full block of training for each race, no knackering yourself at other races effectively killing the goal race plan. Doing it this way you will be able to see what you really capable of! Eye of the tiger baby!

Urbane Fox .... getting away early and getting into a good rhythm early will help you have a positve race experience. Train hard through the winter for the times, but on the day just concentrate on a good race execution. ... and the times will (hopefully) take care of themselves

If anyone else entered has a sub3 I advise you to contact the organisers and get them to bump you up to Preferential. I emailed them my details and a link to my result and they replied saying they had done it and gave me a shiny new (3 digit) nombre de dossard. When I logged back into ASO it had updated and I was able download a thumbnail of my bib with the new number on it.

With 57,000 entrants in April it will be chocker! I'm thinking it'll be nice to start from there but I'm sure I'll overtaken by quite a few peeps from Red. In 2013 I went from blue and it was heavo. ..... Purple and green would be even more so.

Hello All, For Florence I scanned / emailed my EA membership card for my entry and they accepted it. I'd assume it's the same for all the Italian races but drop them a line to be sure.

ES I was stalking. Your run was amazing, I think you have to knock 5 mins off for course difficulty. A lot of positives for you today, the main one is you managed to pace the late 2.40s for a lot of the run. A bit more training, hard work and dedication and on a course like London with good conditions, you could have a serious crack at 2.45-2.48. Congratulations, enjoy the beers!
