Closing date for Ballycotton '10' entries is Thurs 15th Dec...

Just a reminder that the next closing date for Ballycotton '10' entries is next Thursday, the 15th of December. Entries are now only open to the following eligible runners...
1) Members of AAI registered athletic clubs
2) Anyone who completed all 4 of the Ballycotton Summer Series races.

Entries received up to and including Thursday will be accepted. So if you haven't posted your entry form then do so straight away! Overseas entrants have until the 9th of January to get their entries in. More details with a link to the entry form in an earlier post.

So what were the entries like this year compared to last? On the first day (Wednesday) in 2010, they got ~840 entries. This year, they got 1,520 which meant that less than 1,000 were left for the second day of post (Thursday). As a result, not everyone made it on the second day. In 2010, over 400 got in on the third day (Friday).

The first 2,500 entries should be out later in the week.

.....and for a useles bit of trivia! The number of entries on the first day were up 82% on last year. The traffic to this website in November was up by.......82%! The exact same......connection? ;o)
