2014 entry list analysis

Posted on Posted in Entry, News, Uncategorised

The 2014 whw race entries were allocated on Monday 9th December 2013.

Race Director Ian Beattie posted this explanation on our facebook page …

We have now considered all of the entry applications for the 2014 West Highland Way Race. There were 305 applications in total. Of those, 4 withdrew from consideration prior to the review process. 27 were not considered to have adequate relevant experience at this stage and their application was rejected. That meant there were 274 ‘qualified’ entrants for 265 places, and so a ballot needed to be held to determine the 9 people who could not be given a place in this year’s race.

I will be sending an e-mail to each entrant shortly to let them know whether they have been accepted or rejected. If you have been accepted, please accept the invitation as instructed and pay the entry fee. If you have not been accepted, bad luck, and I hope to see you at a future race.
