Mag was sent to old address so had to ring up this morning and check... and was so happy I told the poor sod on the other end of the line that I loved him
My record so far -
2006 - Accepted first time, bequeathed
2007 - Rejected, bequeathed
2008 - Rejected, did not bequeath - got club place
2009 - Accepted, did not bequeath
My first post so Hello
I still havent heard anything, had no money taken etc etc etc. No post at all yesterday, so will wait for post today. If no mag I think I will have to phone up as this is doing my brain in.
has anybody been accepted, and bequesthed and NOT got one of the 1000 "extra" places.
Hi all - this is my first post even though I've be using the site for a few years.
I've just been accepted into the 09 LM (5th time lucky!), but am currently recovering from a series of injuries, so I think I've only about a 50% chance of doing it. I'm intending to decide one way or the other in the new year,
Does anyone therefore know what I need to do - if accept immediately can I defer later? Or should I wait and not reply until I know whether I can do it or not? The instructions in the magazine don't seem to explain this.
I had to roll my 2008 slot over it was nice and easy. When you were accepted you would have received a slip of paper with your details on, there is a box on there that you ned to tick and post beack to them if you want to pull out. Last year you could pull out right up to the day. If you do need to pull ouyt though make sure you post it back recorded delivery and then you can check they have it. I then received a letter not that long ago asking me for a cheque for the 2009 entry fee to ensure my place is accepted, there is a time limit on this reply so again recorded delivery is the best way..
I wouldnt make your mind up yet, I'd wait for as long as you need
Hope that helps
Great - many thanks for confirming that. I won't send the form back for the time being then and will also keep everthing crossed! Good luck with your training.
Got my rejection mag last week, so haven't been hanging around here since then. However, I just phoned the charity that I applied for a GB place with, and they've offered me a place.
Looks like I'm doing London!!!!
Damn, I'm a bit scared now....
ok - so it looks like the ballot results are still coming out?? haven't had mine yet and as i've moved have little confidence in the royal mail redirection service!! have convinced myself mine's got lost!! (probably with fleece enclosed!!
Is anyone else still waiting??
I'm in! Got the good news last Friday.
Can't believe it really, never entered the ballot before, put my entry in just before the deadline and got a place. Gobsmacked!
Its now dawning on me that I'm finally going to run a marathon and I'd better start training!
