The Cheltenham Circular Challenge course, I've noticed, has had yet more kissing gates put in to replace a number of stiles since last year. Their 'on line entry' system at www.thechallenge.co.uk is much slicker. What is it about Cheltenham and the Circular Challenge that attracts the ladies? It is still the Marathon which has the highest ratio of female to male finishers in the whole of the UK and Ireland, the next highest, last year, was the London Marathon. Their Half Marathon results also show a high proportion of female finishers. Could it be the views? Could it be the attraction of having a 'go as you please' system so that you can arrive, meet up with friends, have a chat, when you are all ready 'START' and you are timed from then? None of that 'mass start' rush? Some like it some don't, they seem to! What do you think?
