I got the same message - their facebook page says

The Marathon News magazine, which all registrants should receive in the next seven days, will officially confirm whether you have been successful in the 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon ballot. The payment link does not confirm the outcome of the ballot. We are unable to respond to individual requests regarding this matter.

Just wait and accept your rejection like a man!!!... or you may even be unfortunate enough to get in.

Humm is this a very dodgy site?

It could be perfectly legitate but someone first post ... Is that their actual URL

I would be. VERY VERY CAREFUL following some random link that will ask for payment didn't you provide details when registered ?

I second that, don't you give your payment details when you register?

That link suggests I am in but will await the official mag

However, how do those that bequeath their fee pay ? if its this method it would make sense what FLM say - because they could be asking people for their money that haven't got through the ballot but have bequeathed their fee (who may not pay up if they get rejection mag first)

I tried logging in at first with an incorrect password just incase it was dodgy.  It said it couldn't find my details on the system.  I then tried logging in with the correct password.  It said I hadn't been successful in the ballot.  People who are successful will be taken through to payment details.  Of course, sensible people will wait for the mag and official emails before putting their credit card details in.  If you are unsuccessful there is no option to put any payment details in.

Phew, that's that bit of excitement over with for the afternoon.  And it's given me a bit more motivation to go for that GFA time in my autumn mara

I too thought it could be a dodgy link. Though I'm happy to be proved wrong, I would have thought the payment screen for those accepted would be unlikely to have adverts for people wanting to pay for charity places. And the URl doesn;t look 100% legit

It's not a DF3 thing is it?

If it was a joke I am sure it would tell everyone that they are in only for them to receive the rejection mag a few days later ... that gives me an idea.

It looks legit. According to a DNS lookup the URL is owned by realbuzz.com

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 Money London Marathon team on 0207 902 0200.

Boo! Oh well, better pick another one.

I got that too but after reading TR85's post above I clicked on 'forgot password' and entered my email for them to send a password reminder.  And got a message saying they couldn't find my email address - which is odd as they've emailed me confirmation of ballot entry to the same email.  Makes me wonder if this part of the website is fully functional at the moment.

25/09/2013 at 14:24

Or it is a bogus site looking for passwords to try for e-mail accounts

25/09/2013 at 14:27

i was just wondering that!  A bit late now

25/09/2013 at 14:32

I paid when I entered so I'm guessing that's why it doesnt recognise my details

25/09/2013 at 14:33

It looks OK to me. Mine came up with a different message when I entered an incorrect password than the message is different.
