Abingdon Marathon

Just read some of the comments on the abingdon thread and looks like there's a few people who've already missed out on a place so starting this thread so that everyone who's missed out can put their name on the waiting list as apparently although there is no official waiting list , the organisers are quite happy for runners to give their numbers to other people if they have to drop out...as long as they make sure they let the race organisers know all the relevent details !!!

    I did this last year and the course was so empty - there should be loads more room!

     Fingers crossed to all!

  • Please could you add my friend you missed out for GFA in FLM by an agonising 20 seconds. WOuld be much appreciated.  HIs name is Mark Skev and also my other friend Jacqui W. Contact via me.  Many thanks.

  • Sorry that should be 'who missed out!'
  • Have just thought I'd do what others seem to be doing and adding to the list myself.  Hope this is ok with everyone.

  • no worries S Hirst, it's a purely runner fed list, simply put your name on the bottom and you're on the list, cheers Fast Legs, as i was reading down thought I'd have a bit of tidying up to do but you've already sorted it...not that it's my list I simply started it as requested by runner bean, lets hope you all get on. As mentioned earlier with less than 700 turning up out of 1000 last year should be no problem

    mmm looking forward to a 5k race tomorrow, wonder if my legs have recovered from FLM !

    cheers

    there you go wibles !

  • Thanks Fastlegs and apols to Custard Cream!  Obviously i'm not very techie.  I'm in luckily but my mates missed out by days it seemed - seems to have filled up really quickly.

  • Not too techie myself S Hirst. Had to edit it twiceimage. Should leave it to bedersimage.

    Beders, good luck with the race. What time you hopeing for?

  • cheers fast legs, not going flat out so anything under 23 mins will be fine. There are 3 of them over the next 3 weeks and depending on how the first two go might have a chance of a PB (under 21.45) by the last one if the legs have recovered from the marathon... I'm only slow !.

    blimey first time I've ever been thought of as a computer techie !image more like a computer moron I'm afraid

    Did this in 2008 in a none too shabby 2.57. I swear i didn't even enter till june last year, and this time it's full by the beginning of may. Crikey!
  • Looks like I've been unlucky with my postal entry, as I'm not on the runners list.  Thanks for setting this up Beders image

  • I knew I should have paid the extra three quid and sent my entry via runnersworld site... I see my cheque did not arrive on time, so I'm on list (thanks for setting this up, Bedders, strange to see you out of the 'other' thread we are both on!)

  • Hi can you add me and Chris, my boyfriend, to the list. I have done London 4 times and due to Flora making a mistake ended up running my own Oxford/London Marathon last year. A very small mobile cheering section and Chris as my supply bike it was a very different marathon. Chris wants to run his first ever marathon and we thought close to home would be good. Since Abingdon didn't happen 2007/8? I never thought it would close so early!
