I get it, but it's not a new thing. The cutoffs used to be 2:45 HM equivalent and 5:30 M equivalent. A 5:30 marathon converted to a half marathon using their calculation is a 2:36:30. So to submit a marathon POT you had to be faster than the cutoff they were using for if you were running a half marathon solo event. Same thing when it was 2:30/5:00 and the 5:00 hr marathon equaled a 2:21:52.These POT rules are soooo confusing! I had thought based on the original language that I just had to show a POT for a HM under 2 hrs, but now it seems like my 1:54 half isn't good for much since it's a minute slower than the number rD came up with? Trying not to be bitter about club rD taking over corral C....
You're so close. There isn't a 10 mile or HM before Sept 30th that you couldn't squeeze an extra 15 seconds off (1:23:45)? If not, like @MissLiss279 said, if I were in your shoes I'd submit it.
