Is anyone else having problems accessing the site to register for next year's London Marathon?  Or is it just me?

I cannot get on at all!!  Am worrying that the ballot will close before I get a chance lol

Must be very very busy...

It is not just you  join the other thousands having the same trouble... have a look at the FLM tread

Yes problems getting connected here too.  Not everyone has chance to sit by computer all day.  Very unfair system.

Soooo very frustrating! I keep getting a network error. Ive got my team leader on her computer trying for me too!

It is a rubbish way to do it though! What if you were working in a hospital or something!

yeah me too got into work early to try!!!!!!

FLM isnt the only marathon out there you know!!!

Mr F - It isn't the only marathon out there I know, but it's the best!   I got my 5th consecutive rejection last year and I'm desperate to do London before my knees pack up!  I'm delighted it's not just me that can't get on - at least if no one can we are all in the same boat!   Will keep trying....

got to page 6 of 7 taking about 40 minutes to do so before it then crashed - so be prepared even after you manage ot get on.!!!

Wee Curly Dave - if you've had five consecutive rejections then you should be able to get a guarenteed entry from next year.

I'm still trying as well...

Is it always this hard to apply or is it a sigh of things to come!!!

Don't have much time for this "London is the best" view.

Unless you have run several dozen marathons around the world, I don't see how you can possibly have a view. I've taken part in a measly 6 (inc London), but each has been unique and wonderful in its own right.

It was easy last year. The Bearded One needs to get his act together...

Also trying to get on, last year was my 5th consecutive rejection so should be guaranteed a place for next year, however i think you do still have to get into the ballot before it closes - aarg

still cant get on the site
27/04/2009 at 11:02

just getting a blank screen

and yes my pc is on!

No problem registering at 1.30 this morning, after getting a heads up from another insomniac.  I was still very elated after cracking yesterday's FLM.

 Weight of network traffic?  Hope it soon gets sorted.

1.30 this morning?  Good luck to you but disgraceful work from organisers.  problem is they don't care how many they upset cos there will always be more than enough wanting to enter.

Surprise surprise - can't get on site either .  Couldn't get in last year, so I'm doing Edinburgh instead  - can't wait.  Have done Dublin as my first, and loved it - but expensive as you have the travel, poor exchange rate with euro etc.  If I can't get in London will do another 'big city' one.
