Hello all, I ran the London marathon last weekend and loved it so I want to apply again. The ballot opens on 29th April (tomorrow). My question is, does anyone know from experience what time it opens on the day? Thanks
Craig, I read on another thread here that it opened around midnight ( tonight) last year, good luck
Thanks Martin. I'll stay up for it then.
Will be joining you in burning the midnight oil
Im setting my alarm
if i have a good for age time is that a deffo entry or should i do the ballot as well?
I'm not 100% sure but I'd imagine that a good for age entry would be similar to deferring your place to next year because of injury. In which case there's a special part of the website to fill in. Good work getting good for age though.
Andy the Good for Age times for next year haven't been released yet, unless you've run ridiculously fast in which case good work!
People I know who have GFA are still entering ballot because as Oliver says GFA times havent been announced yet so unless your 15 mins quicker than this years GFA maybe an idea to go onto ballot just in case
Good for age is supposed to be automatic entry but as Oliver says they haven't been released yet, gfa applications are end of May , last years times there was 70 year olds cracking out better times than me so gfa is not gonna be my point of entry
som my 3:06 for the 35yo is a bit close then....yikes ....best do the ballot then
4 minutes to go .........
is it me or is the ballot not open yet?
nope, doesn't appear to be open
4 minutes past, but still no joy ;-(
not open yet!
Cant see its open yet either off to my bed will be up at 7 anyway so will enter then
suppose best set the alarm early then
yep, not gonna wait around. will try early tomorrow. night all
and i thought i was mad....yup up early for me
This happened last year I went to bed, and then couldn't get back on line until late in the evening. By that time the ballot was closed.
Was gonna say not open till I read the last entries
Entry in... now just a six month wait!
its not open on the website???
entry done - now waiting for GFA at the end of May
entry in, fingers crossed, 2008-2012 I got knocked back from the ballot, lucky enough I have had club places.
