Hi guys, just registered.
Thought I'd try, surely it should be too early, but the ballot was open.
Let the training commence, 1 year... and a 1 in 7 chance, oh, probably not then.
Who else has registered ?
Thats me into 1st day of holiday and a early alarm to enter guess i can go for a run now after brekkie
Just entered! What a potential way to celebrate my 50th Birthday!! Off to work I go now in what seems like hurricane force winds......
Good luck everyone!
Another one entered here.
Live the dream, good luck all
10th application made- never gotten in on the ballot so holding out no hope
Haven't even got a confirmation email yet even though the page says application has gone in.
Check your spam mail guys! My confirmation email went straight into there.
Just entered the ballot. Would be my first marathon after a couple of half's!
Think i will enquire through contacts i have in a few charities to see if they can help too...
I entered about 0:40 last night and email then took about 15 mins to get the email through. Now non nocturnal people are applying I guess there will be a rush and the network will be very busy.
If anyone thinks there is a problem my confirmation email shows the VLM office number as
0207 902 0200
Good luck to all
Sounds like it's not a good idea to reapply (re Andrew Edwards 20). I quote from the confirmation email:
"Please don't enter the ballot more than once as this could result in all your entries being cancelled."
If you got the page with the reference number (and wrote it down hopefully) you ought to be ok.
Having gone through the fiasco that was the Olympic ticket application and having read comments from past years about the VLM process, it seems the servers are faring slightly better this year.
I woke up at 5:30 (not sure why) blearily looked at Twitter on my phone and saw people had applied so fired up the laptop and did so myself. It will be my first if I'm successful, but if not I'll do another one anyway, injuries permitting.
I think if you've got a confirmation number you're OK
