    Thanks. I'll make sure all of my documents are in order.

    what documents do i need - is it just a certificate from previous race with time on? Do we have to pay now or when accepted? How does it all work?

  • They will tell you what you need to send. Last year I had to pay once I had sent my proof of time

  • MillsyMillsy ✭✭✭
    Last year you needed certificate of your time or link to website results and then passport / driving licence to prove ID.

    I use an app called cam scanner where you just photograph the documents and then it converts them into a PDF file which you can then email to your PC.

    I think they have a check of the documents and then send you a link to confirm and pay. I think this was a week or so after sending off the results.

    Was a pretty simple process from memory.

    Thanks for the app tip Millsy! I should have all the documents as applied last year but PC and scanner both out of use with decorators in. I seem to remember sending my passport and driving license pics last year plus link from results. 

  • Strange question but anyone know how much it is to enter?
  • FreemersFreemers ✭✭✭
    Last year you needed proof of ID - so passport or driving licence (something with a photo and would have your DOB), plus proof of UK residence (e.g. utility bill or bank statement). Plus the proof of marathon time of course image

    Runningowl - something around ??35 or thereabouts I think.
  • Website still saying return on the 13th June..........

  • I know I keep referring back. I have GFA a few times and every year the entry procedure is different! I do hope it is not going to be more complicated!

    All Done image - hopefully in now with my 2:57 at aged 40 - happy days

  • SlowkoalaSlowkoala ✭✭✭

    All done??! When I go to the website it still says to check back on 13th June! image

    Edit - tried again and now it has the link. That's weird.

  • Er how do I prove I'm a UK resident ? Bank statements are all online now. Pah - will have to dig something out.

    New style 'photo' driving licenses have your address on (as well as photo ID and DOB) image

  • ahhh
  • andyc209andyc209 ✭✭✭

    i used passport - but driving license will do i think

  • MillsyMillsy ✭✭✭
    Done, I had better train for it properly this year.
  • Woo! I've applied now as well. image

    The UK Residence proof tripped me up a bit, but I just took a photo of my last bank statement and wrote Copy across it in Photoshop. Fingers crossed that's enough for them...

  • Applied image.  Have had to use driver's licence for proof of age AND proof of residence and not sure they'll accept that.......

    Brilliant time Andy!

    Tiny, I'm sure that's fine to use your drivers license for both.

    All done. Better get in as am applying for GFA rather than using my deferred place as you can't defer the deferred place again!

    See you all at the green start. 

  • andyc209andyc209 ✭✭✭

    cheers tiny - after years of ballots, them changing the times last year and heartache i cannot believe i can simply tell them a time and get a guaranteed place - surely its not that simple - must be a catch somewhere that means i don't get in?

  • andyc209andyc209 ✭✭✭

    image I am In - just got my verification email - how easy was that - this fast time thing is good - makes me want to train harder

  • After starting this thread it took me 2 days to sort my printer and scanner out to enable me to send my details!
