On the City 2 Surf website there is now a note on the entry page that reads:
"Due to huge demand for the top groups, the qualifying times will be changing in 2012. Further details and tighter qualifying times TBA."
Action Jackson suspects maybe a change to sub 54 for males and sub 59 for females for preferred. They may bring in the Q times on the red and green groups as well.
So anyone reading and aiming for a time better run just a little bit faster than you thought you would run this year.
This could be my one and only year of preferred if they tighten them too hard for 2012.
