Just to let you know that, because Darren’s doing some running himself this coming weekend, and therefore won’t have finished with the necessary catering and goody-bag purchasing, we’re going to keep entries open for another little while.
Entries are well above 30 in both marathons, so they’re definitely going to count for the 100 club (which needs 15 finishers).
Half marathon is above 20, which is more than we’ve had many times since we started in 2014, and we’ve still got a few spaces left for teams if you want to enter.
It hasn’t been a great month for us with marathon ballots. This is our second in a month.
To be fair, there are going to be far fewer places available in the big city events over the next couple of years as people take up deferrals and such like. That’s how come we’re running in Chicago in October, deferred a succesful ballot place from 2020!
Of course, there are plenty of other marathons available in November, including a lovely little event in Cleethorpes on the 19th and 20th. We’d definitely be running that one if we weren’t busy that weekend.
If you’d like to run a marathon or a half, or to take part in one of the best relay races around, then get entries in now. There’s no ballot, it’s first come-first served; but even though we’ve increased available entries, once it’s full, it’s full.
