    I don't think you can pass entries on. You need to let the organisers know and they'll allocate to the next person on the waiting list - seems a reasonable approach to me.

    You might want to be quick if you are going to give it up and dont want it to go to waste - a friend of mine was injured a few years ago a few weeks before the race but after the runners cards had been sent out - once the cards go out I dont think they allow any further changes. You've probably got a few weeks yet but I'm not sure exactly when they do post them - early August if I remember right? Real shame if you cant make it, I've known people drive up from way down south in the morning purely for the race and I dont think they regretted it.

    I've emailed the secretary of the race so things can be done properly, told them to keep my entry fee as well which, coming from Yorkshire, really hurt
    Dissapionted not to be doing it but they'll be other times and someone will not miss out this year

    Shame your missing it, you seem a decent bloke and you've obviously got a conscience, doing things to help others. Hats off to you.

    Glad the new job seems to be okay for you.

    Never know the way little merrylegs is running, 10 years you can do it with him!!!
