I am in South Africa next year for a friends wedding, and thought whilst I was there I would do the Two Oceans 56k Ultra marathon.
As an international runner from outside South Africa, I don't need to qualify for the race and could start at the back.
But I would like to qualify and to get a decent seeding. I ran the Brighton marathon in 2010 in 4:02 and would expect to run another marathon before the Two Oceans in a time of around 03:40.
My question is what are the qualfying races? On the website it says "races run under the auspice of the IAAF." But having seen the IAAF calendar this appears to be London, Paris, New York all the big marathons. But the marathons I intend to run before then are Rutland and then I may look at another small English marathon. Am i right in thinking these wouldn't count?
If someone could provide me with a list of eligible races or some tips it would be much apperciated. Thanks.
