Just had my congratulations mag, it says I was rejected in the Ballot, but am one of the lucky 1,000 winners of the Bequest Draw.
That will do me,better start planning my long runs.
Anyone else still waiting? Gnawing my knuckles off at the minute!
Good luck to all that got in, add it to the reject bedpost for the others. Sounds like there are several people quite relieved as they are nursing injuries or have had other problems since applying.
How does the system work with those places that are deffered? Presumably you're either in the ballot or not so you can't have the 'closest losers' situation? Is there another ballot?
Still no news!!!
My brother got in but i'm still waiting - no money gone and no magazine. What do you guys reckon? Is no news good news?
Didn't beqeath this year

Im still waiting too..... the online thing says money will be taken by 7th Oct so waiting till then I guess.... can you find out any other way if successful (incase royal mail lose magazine etc?)
I'm a reject again..paris her e i come
Lucky to get on of the 1000 places in the Bequeathed Draw having been unsuccessful in the main ballot. Bequeathed last year and was unsuccessful. After looking through magazine now thinking about running for a charity without the pressure of having to raise a mininum amount. Congrats to all who have got places and commiserations to those that haven't.
I'm in - wasn't expecting that got used to getting jackets and fleeces
Damn this means i'm going to have to put down the pie and put on the trainers
Reject magazine just popped through the letter box for me and hubby too.
Oh well.... Stockholm looks interesting perhaps?
Congratulations and good luck to everyone with a place.
I'm confused..........just received my rejection for the 6th time?
I am supposed to have automatic entry next year???
Anyone else got this problem?
I applied in 2003 in maiden name same address
then 2004,5,6,7,8 in married name same address
I will have to ring them on monday I suppose.
Did you inform them of your change of name when you got married
Hope you can get i sorted out
*waves to stylish*
Hi all, I got in yesterday with my acceptance mag arriving which was a bit of a shock!
I spoke with someone I know at Marathon HQ, yes's and no's are going out in random batches with the last lot being sent on Wednesday so fingers crossed for everyone who not yet heard.
I'm in. I got the good news yesterday. It was a bit of a shock though to be honest as i had forgotten that i had entered.
I will have to get back out there running again, as i have only been running with my dog for the last few months.
I am sure i will be ok though, as i did the FLM last year, the really hot one.
Its a pity i cannot take my dog along for the run around london he would love it.
Good luck to all those who were successful
A big fat no for me also - didn't beq so at least I don'y have to suffer a fecking huge fleece!
2005 - No
2006 - no
2007 - yes
2008 - nope
2009 - nope
Oh well, back to planning ironman NZ instead
Oh, and good luck to all the great north runners tomorrow.
got my acceptance today...
Sorry to say this but I am so happy some people still haven't had a mag one way or the other. Its so annoying, all this hanging on and I may not even get in. I have decided if by lunch time Monday I have nothing still I'll ring up Monday and ask whats happened.
Good luck to those who are in GNR tomorrow, I'm doing my first ever Liverpool 10K quite looking forward to it even with out my usual level of training behind me (illness, slight injury and little bit to do with rotten weather!)
