Sorry to be a pain Alan but i can't do this now. I've signed up but my hubby surprised me yesterday with a trip to Prague for the bank holiday weekend.
Is it possible to defer my entry till next year??

Standing in a nothing but a paper thong in front of a screen while some 18 year old with a fabulous body sprays an airgun at you is quite an ordeal though....

LB - by the way - don't think the photo worked - unable to open / view it ?
Poo! It was a good photo too....
AGT - I would LOVE a surprise trip to Prague! There are no deferrals sadly, but who cares when you're going away?
LB - the photo worked for me and I agree, it was good.
Shrek - now that I've past 40 I don't really have any crisis with age. They say everyone gets older, but also their is an exception to every rule. I intend to be the exception.
Over 40's are culled from my Facebook!
I can't be seen to be associating with pensioners....
Thanks LB. I knew there were no refunds but wasn't sure re deferrals. I will console myself with a nice pint of Czech beer
Hope the weather is lovely for you all whether running or spectating.
Have one for me AGT!
And runners are the exception LFC.....

We're on page 3 (thinks of LB!!) and need to be on the front page.
I told you those photos were for your eyes only!
Great news that you're getting the numbers on board for this - its a pretty unique race!
The Metcheck forecast for 30th May is cool and cloudy. Now that would make a pleasant change from last year!
Alan thats a great turn out and surely adds more weight to the bid you've submitted for the Mersey Marathon.
Met at the Wallasey Town hall last night to confirm arrangements with the Fire Hydrants - should they be needed! October 10K entries now open by the way!!
What do you mean "should they be needed"?
They're needed - even on a cloudy day! The firemen provide a little spring in the step of every girlie running this race!
Though you should probably even it up and get the guys some cheerleaders
I have no intention of doing page 3! I am a serious competitive athlete innit?
I would like to think so - but more importantly, the work we have done over the last five years under difficult circumstances. The city (!!) has an excellent portfolio of race events which I still maintain is not supported in the real sense of the word - by the private or public sector.
Look what MANCHESTER delivered last Sunday.
Our first phase submission for Mersey Marathon will go in for consideration the back end of next week, just before the deadline. We then wait and see if Liverpool City Council considers us a suitable candidate for the delivery of a marathon event. I'm sure they will consider it long and hard!!
thanks for the info for Liverpool 10k Alan,I just entered online.
looking forward to the tunnel run now,have been running pretty well of late,did a couple of races whilst stranded in Spain because of ash cloud and got 2nd in my category twice so got 2 nice pots on the mantlepiece.
Theres a good local race tonight if anyone fancies a warm up for the tunnel 10k,its the Walton park 5miler, starts at 7;30 outside Walton hall park sports centre,entries on the day accepted,costs about £10,traffic free route,1 small and 2 large laps of the park all on paths.
It does sadden me that Manchester can attract 35,000 people and an amazing elite field whilst charging (what I feel to be) an huge amount for a 10K but all credit to them for delivering what appears to be a fantastically well supported and well run race day.
Its only down the road - so why couldn't Liverpool deliver something just as good? I would argue it has the better vista with the waterfront and the people are brilliant!
Something to aim for, I guess....

If the girlies have the firemen on one side, we could have some ladies in white t-shirts in the spray on the other. Not too far into the spray mind you.
