Has to be, because the number of finishers (and for that matter, starters) can vary between the 2 qualifiers. So you should be ok :)
Well, we can test it out, since after my terrible run today I seem to be sitting right at 26th!
Startlist says you made the A final :)
Thanks, happy to be the first starter in the A final tomorrow. :-)
I'm curious whether those 6 runners who didn't show up for the quals end up running tomorrow -- maybe some of them registered knowing all along that they'd only make it for the weekend! In any case, it helped me out.
