What Entry Fee Do I Pay ???
I've applied for, and have been given, a Good-for-Age guaranteed entry form using my own address here in Ireland. My question is what entry fee do I pay, the £27 quoted on the form or the £60 overseas entry fee I've heard mentioned?
Good question, well presented!! Try ringing the hotline hopefully they will be able to help.
Thanks Slaphead. Did you choose that name yourself ?
You're having a laugh! I've been told 'hey, did you know you're going bald?' since I was 11. I wouldn't mind but it aint that bad, but living in Naples, Italy I decided it was time for the plunge when the hot summer arrived and had it all shaved off! - the Mrs thinks its great. Have to say its a lot more comfortable when running now!!!!
Slaphead, I'm not far behind you in the folicle department. I was a tad reluctant to make contact with official sources on this question as I thought there was a possibility of them saying "oops, good-for-age entries aren't for you overseas chappies at all", and that my application had been taken in error, because there's no mention of an oversea's fee on the form. I don't want to trick anyone but then again it's nice to know whether the dog bites before you wake him up !
I'd give them a call anyway. I rang them with reference to the GFA entry as I finished last year in 3:15:14 so I enquired if this was good enough for an entry - they said NO it isnt but being blood minded I sent it anyway and guess what - I got the entry form through!!
Now, you could say from that that they don't know what they're talking about so why bother? - they wont take your name or anything so I wouldn't worry too much.
I don't think it would be an issue for Ireland anyway. I'd be inclined to send 27 quid with your GFA entry anyway and just plead ignorance.
I'll take your advice. There always Boston after all :-)
