Thanks Dannirr and benignmurmurring for putting my mind to rest as I was told by another runner who knows that I am not a "natural runner"  that I would be disqualified and would embarress myself

thanks for putting my mind at rest

Thanks for answer running rodent  I am a very slow middle aged plodder and I ve picked up the marathon bug after completing london (notice no running word) I put in for the Paris Marathon and got a ballot place but am unsure if they are as welcoming in Paris as in London to people who have trained hard but are still slow my time is around 6 hours and I d love to do it.  For the last three years I have followed the asics participants and watched their acheivements specifically Malcom and shady aidy but I would be in never never land if I thought I would ever come close to emulating their times but if the french are as welcoming of hard training slow coaches I will gladly pay right this minute for my place as its been worrying me.

I hope you don't mind me asking the following question about the paris marathon to those faster marathon runners who have completed it.  The cut off time is 5.40 but the results show that quite a few finished after the cut off time.  What happens after the 5.40 cut off point do the finishers still get a medal  I hope you can help

Thanks Twinkle
