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.

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
