Have just been reading entry requirements for next year's Brathay Windermere Marathon (a fave race of mine and my marathon PB course) and am feeling a bit disheartened about the new entry commitment for racers to raise a minimum of £200 in support of the charity. I do too many races to keep asking people to sponsor me and I certainly wouldn't pay £200 to enter a race, so I guess it's one race I won't be doing next year. Am I being tight? What do others feel?
I guess the Brathay charity must be confident of getting enough people to enter on this new basis, and I appreciate that it's cheap compared to VLM "golden bond" charity places, but I still feel that it's going to make it a "no-goer" for a lot of people in these financially-difficult times. Or am I missing something?
