I second Elizabeth, the ballot was Mon 30th, 8 days after the race, and my confirmation email is dated 1.28am! I went back and looked during the day and it was still open mid-afternoon IIRC but had closed by nighttime.
maybe you could help me....I would like to know how to join a London marathon next year to raise a fund basing in the Philippines. may I now the procedures???? thanks!
The London Marathon is April 20th 2014, which according to my diary IS Easter Sunday. *confused*
I've failed one ballot before so fingers crossed for getting a place - I wont hold my breath though!
Where are people getting the 20th April 2014 from?
The London Marathon is on the weekend before Easter Sunday, 13th April 2014.
Chimpster, is that off the VLM site? I can't find anything on there.
Public ballot opens on the 29th April... good luck!!!
From this years final VLM magazine, ballot for 2014 opens 29 April 2013 and will close when 125,000 applications have been received.
Dont think they do the enter 5 times your automatically into London marathon anymore! Iv entered over 15 times & only got in through the main ballot once!!! Think too many people enter for this system to be feesable now! Stopped it a few years ago.
Debbie, you're right. They did away with the 5 times rejected a few years back.
29th it is....again!
Opps sorry Cinders missed your question. It is indirectly on the VLM website, it's hidden in the VLM 2013 media guide
I ran the marathon last year and went on holiday 5 days later. The ballot opened whilst I was on holiday so its normally about a week after.
Hope this helps.
Silly question but what time does the ballet open at on April 29th
Thanks for all the info here... planning to apply for the first time this year after doing a few half marathons. Good luck to all applying!
Anyone know when they're likely to post the new Good For Age info for 2014? I've got a qualifying time for next year if they keep the same times as 2013 (but only just, so if they change them I'll need to go in the ballot!).
I'm looking into applying for 2014 London Marathion but have never done it before. All the information you have provided has been great but can anyone offer any details about the actual applying process and what's involved. Would really appreciate any information.
This year is the last year for the 5 rejections/automatic place system. So anyone rejected for the last 4 years will automatically get a place for 2014. Then it's pot luck for everyone!
amy.you go on the website.put your information in and your card details and press submit......
same as most other on line purchases....
it is different if you live abroad
