How to Enter
This page explains how you can register for and enter the 100-mile challenge event, when entrants attempt to walk the full 100 mile route in one continuous walk, starting on 2 June 2012. Entries remain open both to members and the public. If you want to enter the smaller Marshals Walk and this is your preferred walk, please see the Marshals Walk Entries page.
Registration and Entry Process
The LDWA Games 100 opened for initial registration of applications on 16 October and unless the entry limit of 550 valid entries in reached, will remain open until 30th April 2012. There was an initial registration period that closed on Sunday 20th November 2011. As fewer than 550 entries were received by 20th November no ballot was required and all valid entries were accepted, subject to payment being made.
Entry for remaining places opened on 19 December, 2011. The remaining places will be filled on a first come first served basis irrespective of LDWA membership. All entrants will need to have completed an approved qualifying event between 1st January 2011 and 30th April 2012. Provisional qualifiers will now be accepted but you must complete one to walk the event (with a partial refund if you fail to do your qualifier and withdraw). Entries will close on Monday 30th April 2012. No credit cards will be debited or cheques presented until entries are confirmed. Notices of rejection, including any returned entry fees, were sent from 4th December 2011.
If 550 entries are accepted before 30th April 2012 then a reserve list will be started, with those on the reserve list accepted following any withdrawals.
Before you register or enter either online or by post please read the Rules of the Event for other details and options.
How to Register and Enter
Entries are open both online and by post and no preference will be given to entries made by either method.
We hope the majority of you will be able to enter by SiEntries. It removes the use of paper (particularly the need to produce evidence of qualifying events) and reduces the administrative work that falls on the Entries Secretary. However for those entrants who are unable or do not wish to use SiEntries we will continue to provide the facility to enter in the traditional way.
Registration is now open (from 16 October 2011).
