Not In!

Postby BGit » Thu Sep 30, 2010 2:38 pm

Why is it that, in all the years I've entered this I have never got in by the ballot. I reckon probably 10 or 12 times, (tho' I've always managed to cock up the 5-times-in-a-row thingy.)



What have they got against a fat slow bloke from Nottingham, eh?



Just what?!?



Do they not like my shorts?



Do they want me to dress up as a flippin' endangered species or chuffin' gladiator or what?



C'mon, Branson, tell me, I need to know.

I don't think they've dropped the 5 in a row if you were already in a sequence; this'll be my third failure in a row, so I just have to fail twice more and I can then fail miserably on the streets of that-there-London.

Yes you will be OK, anyone who entered for this years race on won't be.

I sent my best for age off and registered it with the post office to prove it was sent. When I contacted them they've got no record of my entry. **** em, I'll do Kinder Downfall instead.

I walked the Downfall race route yesterday. Far far better than the Streets of London.
