On the morning of Thursday 1 November I, along with several thousand other people, spent nearly 2 hours trying to enter the Two Oceans half marathon. The website was doomed to clog up because entries on that date were only open to those who had run the race before and were limited to 10 000. However, what really held it up was an enormous 13-page medical questionnaire that had to be filled out as part of the entry process. A similar questionnaire was introduced last year, but could be filled out later, once you had your entry. However, the race organisers (and the sports scientists involved) decided, in their wisdom, that this questionnaire was so important that it must now be part of the entry process.
