YAY I'm in!! But I was lucky to be confirmed for a charity place in July anyway so knew i'd be running Can anyone confirm that the Congratulations magazine means you are successful in the BALLOT and not just a golden bond place? Trying to be 100% sure whether i've definately got a ballot place or whether Charity place runners who got accepted before the ballot came out also get a Congrats mag!
Mrs Cat5 didn't get in. .
She doesn't run.
Aizxana, i can comfirm that you are in on the ballot, so you will not have to raise some exorbatant sum for the charity, you can raise what you can afford! Well done anyway, have a great time
So long ago I applied cant remember did we have to put CC details on application ?
gemgemx, enlighten me, please...
i didnt get in !! gonna throttle the penguins
katy briggs 2: yes, come over to the ultra side! It's fun, honest.
Yup got mine
Got this welcoming e.mail from Virgin...ahhh, how thoughtful of them
Debra Bourne - Just entered MIlton keynes marathon which is the start of may, if this goes well I may have a go at the northants ultra ( 35 ish miles) which is held 4 miles from where I live and build up slowly to longer events. Never been speedy but distance does not bother me.
Yes mad ... race started as a way to get athletes into running race amd marathons. Now to be honest they couldny really give a toss about runners all they want is people to raise money for charity. Its now just an event where people do little or no training walk round and claim to have "run the London Marathon"
It just makes me laugh as people seem to think they cant give to charity unless someone runs 26.2 miles !!!
People also can`t seem to grasp the fact that I run for fun. Come early next year i`ll have to fend off all of the questions of "London Marathon? What charity are you doing it for?"
Yes annoyed me as well people used to ask me that and I would say Im not but then advised them thet do not have tpo wait until somone run the LM to donate to charity
Probablt the same folk who sit around for years needing double glazing but have to wait until somone rings them up to ask them if they need it !!
Katy, that's great. Do go and run northants - I've heard good things about it, although that's not one I've done. Come see us on the "wannabe ultra runner" thread over in the Ultra / Adventure Racing section.We're friendly! - Mad, but friendly!
......can I whisper my aspirations to be an ultra-runner.
Definitely got the qualification of mad. I might have to shyly nip over and wave sometime.
