I make a small request that I'd prefer for it not to start around the 14th, as I may be on vacation that week. I also intend to submit to Frame Fatales which happens on February the 23rd to the 29th - however, my times can be adjusted to stop potential clashing, so it's less of an issue.

You don't have to cater to me, but it does indeed feel like this place is in need of submissions.

@TreyaTreya That's fine 🙂 don't worry. We'll try to cater as much as possible to runner's availability. I'll be posting in the Discord server after the submissions close with a poll to ask which dates people would prefer the marathon to run on and will then try to work around it as much as possible 🙂 hope this is ok
