Weekly roundup: 9th October 2016

  • Adventure Embassy: Is the Virgin London Marathon ballot fair? Sorry, I know it’s naff linking to my own post, but this one is topical since as of tomorrow the magazines will start landing on doormats telling you if you are in or out of the London Marathon. Last year (my third consecutive unsuccessful attempt to get in) I wrote this blog post addressing the common complaint that the system is unfair and/or needlessly cruel, and also looking at the dominance (in my opinion over-dominance) of charity places in this and other races.
  • Yankee Magazine: The sinking of El Faro. The kind of true-life longform disaster story I find fascinating. Well worth a read if you have some time to kill.
