Hi Tom

There are no guarantees. But if you can do the run 30 seconds faster than is required, then it would take a pretty big underperformance not to qualify.

So you have quite a large reserve and it shouldn't be a problem to crack 5 minutes. But, as I say, no guarantees. Just make sure you're rested and ready. Don't try train now and start tired.

I'm sure you'll make it.
