Bear B.Hind - What internet browser are you using? I remember having problems in the past using Firefox so reverted to Internet Explorer for online payments via RW.
Race organisers are usually fairly approachable on this if you want to ask, otherwise there will always be people wanting a number nearer the time if you get two.
Long time no post, are you well ?
Not for me this year I'm afraid, finances dictate a more local approach to races.
That said I'm thinking about it next year .....
I did swear blind I'd not put myself through the torture of Beachy again. Guess what?! God, it'd be cheaper, and less painful, to just buy a sossidge roll
Lo MB, how's things?
Am I the only person to be fed up that after last year's none too brilliant attempt toget the entrance numbers right and the finish times recordced Beachy is now becoming a 'normal' marathon with chip timing and registration on the day (and why is that closing at 8.30?)?
Am I the only person to be really shocked at the outragous hike in entry fees to cover this? (And why there was all that trouble over last year's finish times/numbers I can't imaginme - the software to cope with this has been around for years.).
I think I may have done it for the last time. It's the Farnham Pilgrim for me instead : shame, cos I've loved this event and done it for years.
Hello there MB. I'm fine, had a good year run-wise after an early injury but am now a bit broke and undecided. Haven't got my new year head on yet.
You're considering doing Beachy again?? Anyone would think you actually enjojed this running lark
Well, this is my first post on the RW forum
Just entered myself & partner for Beachey Head in October - we've both done a few half marathons but thats it although walk and run in that area anyway so have a good idea whats in store!

I'm fine thanks Kaz, just taking a year off running Marathons to try and lose a bit of weight and strengthen the abs.
Going to concentrate on the Longmynd Hike walk (50miles), and local races this year.
Next will try for London (5th time), White Peak, and maybe Beachy.
Depends on finances really.

I only did it as a walker last time, need to run it next time to fully appreciate how tough it is.
I do enjoy running, problem is my back doesn't, and I still can't get past 14 miles before having to stop and walk.
And I know what you mean about broke, I did 17 Marathons last year (36 races in all), and am a bit short of dosh this year (oh and got married as well).
So local only this year (apart from one or two walks in the peaks).
Good luck though.
