  • I shall make myself available for sweaty hugs at 17!

     

  • *queues up for sweaty hugs*

    I promise to try not to cover everyone in white face  paint this year LOL image

  • EP, you'll need to wait for you mag image

  • Hang on a minute, how do folks know that they are in?
  • Maybe if they haven't got your details it could be because the link is from 2012 and not your registered detail for 2013?



    I didn't register last year and it says sorry we don't have your details but I have the confirmation email from April and get plenty of annoying realbuzz emails so they obviously do have my details.



    Just a thought
  • Keggi,as all the pages start like this

    Pay for your 2013 Virgin London Marathon place

    it seems unlikely its an old link!

     

  • I've had confirmation of entry to 2013

  • Well, I paid up front, and the web site doesn't seem to know who I am, guessing I am not in, fingers crossed for a club place.....
  • Has anyone who has paid received a confirmation email?
  • So am I a reject too then...??

    We're sorry, but we can't find the details you entered as being successful in the ballot. If you have any queries regarding this please call our Virgin London Marathon team on 0207 902 0200.

  • boooooo.. oh well not surprised. At least i can now say I am 100% doing Brighton.

    you have missed out again VLM !!
  • yes paid and got confirmation email for 2013

    if you have bequeathed that link won't tell you anything you'll need to wait for the mag

    if you get a "we can't find you" type message, and haven't bequeathed you're not in image

  • Forgive my ignorance, bequeathed?
  • Lor, paid and now frantically refreshing email....

    Thats a no image

  • bequeathed is if you give the money upfront regardless of whether you get in or not and you get a jacket/fleece or whatever the consolation prize is for that year. as you'll have already paid you won't be on the in and not paid database. so you'll just have to wait for the in or out mag

  • MK for me then.

    This will be my fourth rejection in a row, 7 rejections in total. You would think I would learn by now not to get my hopes upimage

    Only a matter of time before my reject mag arrives.

    Good luck everyone!

     

  • guaranteed for 2014 though Katy?

  • Nope!

    I missed out on the old rejection rule as I last ran it  in 2009. But as I am both  pesistant and stuborn I will keep applying. I might go for the most number of consecutive rejections. image

     

  • Phew, got my email, now it really is true. 5th time lucky - woohoo!!!!

  • oh that's a pain katy.

    lol LL image

  • Still, it will encourage me to explore marathons other than London. I have unfinished business with Milton Keynes. I did all the training but was ill the day before so could not run. But not in 2013! (hopefully)

  • Congratulations! To everyone who is sucessful in getting a place.

  • abingdon is really nice

  • Must add it to my list. I have heard good things about it. Have a real desire to "go long" in the next year, maybe tackle on ultra if I can get the time to train.

  • I did it a few years ago and it was lovely. the cup of tea they gave out at the end was the best cuppa ever image and finishing on the running track was brill.  image training for a marathon is enough for me I think image 

  • Got a bit excited to get to payment page - then got 'no details' bit so am thinking am probably not in.  Never mind - looking forward to being at mile 17 supporters spotimage .

  • Did Abingdon years ago and loved it. It's Brighton for me as got the no details message but as hubby is in London it's a quandary as it means down south two weekends in a row. Not sure about the logistics and expense of that. Guess I need to book hotels in both places.
