Samples of Tom’s entertaining FB posts from 2017:
- Time to quit that nasty Netflix binge watching over a glass of wine (really a bottle) and bar of chocolate. You need to train. You just got into the Knee Knacker.
- Time to start livin’ the dream of going to bed early, always being hungry, always needing a shower, and spending your whole weekend doing something to make a run happen.
Enzo summarizes this year’s lottery stats:
- 498 entrants
- 270 to be selected – with attrition of ~24% this will put ~205 runners on start line (based on historical attrition rates)
- 26 entrants are guaranteed based on rules at http://www.kneeknacker.com/
- after 26 guaranteed entrants, we are left with 472 names into the lottery (498-26=472)
- 244 spots left to draw (270-26=244) from those 472 names
- odds of getting in – 244/472 = 51.7%
