Full entry list for the 2011 Ballycotton '10' now out...

At last! The full entry list for the 2011 Ballycotton '10' is now out and it looks as if there are 3,192 entries. On race day of course, there will be a large number of 'no-shows' so it's probably likely that around 2,300 will run.

Interestingly enough, the total number of entries was down slightly this year. Last year, they got 3340 while this year, it's 3,192....about 150 less. Then again, that's only roughly a 3% drop so it's not a whole lot anyway.

Onto the lists....
The list in numerical order is HERE

The list in alphabetical order is HERE

Some points from the organisers...
We would ask people to please take note of the following points:



(1) The race packages (number, programme, etc) will be posted out approx two weeks before the race day of March 6th – on the week commencing February 20th


(2) We do not have a waiting list. We allow for a certain percentage of ‘no shows’ and therefore accept more than we can accommodate.


(3) We do not refund people who are unable to run.


(4) You cannot give your number to another runner. Last year, despite our warnings, a few runners again ignored this rule. As a result, we took the unprecedented step of publishing pictures of people not wearing the correct number on our website. We are prepared to do the same this year and also will not accept entries from the offending parties for next year’s race. So don’t say you haven’t been warned!

what's the story with no names for the first 50 numbers. i know they are elite runners but any idea when we know who they might be ?

Yes I'm a little disappointed too. My friend posted his and mine together by dropping both of them to the post office on that icy afternoon when the forms came online. His name made the list and mine didn't. Must have been something wrong with my application I guess. Maybe I'll give someone else a chance this year :-)

Cathal,there is no "story" with the first 50 numbers. These numbers are simply retained for elite athletes, as is standard procedure at Ballycotton '10' for many years. We will obviously not know the identity of all elite athletes until closer to race day.

In reply to Colin....
If you are not on the full list then alas you're not in. An alternative might be the Mallow '10' on the 27th of March.

I also posted mine and my friends together...he's in...I'm not! Not even going to bother complaining...but very disappointed with them.

Now that the full list is out, obviously a certain number of people will be disappointed.

There may be a number of reasons why people didn't get in....
1) Didn't sign the entry form
2) Didn't qualify for the particular entry date
3) An Post...did they deliver your letter on time?

Looking back at a poll that was carried out here when the SAE forms were sent out in 2009, it would seem that there is a big difference in term of when the actual letters arrive.
