Last Chance to BQ Race

Post  carleenp on Sun Apr 27, 2014 11:17 am

I just registered for this race in the fall. If anyone is looking for a last chance to try to BQ before registration is likely to close, this is a good option!The entire race is set up to maximize the chances of qualifying: Last Chance BQ.2 Race

I was going to try to BQ at Bayshore this spring, but all my predictor races don't quite get me there, or if I do make it, I doubt it will be by enough to guarantee registration, so I figured this might be my best chance in the fall!    

Anyway, I figured I would share it in case anyone is looking for such a race.

Interesting idea. I didn't read too far into the website, but I assume there are qualifying standards as they want entrants who are close to their BQ

Yes. People have to have run a half at their BQ pace or a marathon within 10 minutes of a BQ. I qualified at my half this past weekend.

Whether it will be 2015 or not is yet to be seen, but I think I have fairly decent odds. I'm certainly getting close to being able to qualify.
