does the priority entry thing mean that anyone with 2/3 rejections is still guaranteed entry after 5 rejections? i am on rejection 2 from 2011 so hoping either 2012 or 2013 i will get a place? l ran with a charity place in 2009 and am so hoping for a ballot place for 2012. if not i will do edinburgh
sorry, typo, 2012 is my 4th consecutive year of applying
If the same as last year, the second class post timed for the Monday 2nd October meant some were received on the 30th September. I remember having to wait for my rejectdion. I think it still seems like a good idea...
Ohhhh I was miffed then FF
oh i got overly excited for a minute then hah! wonder if itll come before the end of the week
A couple of years ago anyone who got in had a link on the main site to pay for their entry. Everyone was able to log in and if you were "in" you went to the payment page if you didn't get in they just said they didn't find you.
Think they stopped this last year ...anyone who's in got such a link!!!
This is my 4th out of 5 years to enter (enterered too late one year) and the first year that I haven't been doing the long runs... trying to put some weight on.
I am therefore expecting to get in , by the law of the sods!
