Yes they have scrapped it but kept it going for those that had already tried at least twice. So 2014 will clear everyone from that I'd have thought, then onto purely pot luck every year.
Been a long wait for this one
I'm pretty sure I've been rejected five times now and I will be in for 2013 but there was no mention of that when I entered so it might be 2014 when I finally get my place.
You'd have got an email with Priority Ballot entry or something like that & given a username and password..
Just dugout the email, starts off like this -
Dear Runner, Further to our email to you on the 5th of March we are now sending you the link to your Priority Online Ballot Entry System to enter the ballot for the 2013 Virgin London Marathon. Our records show that you have made 4 consecutive unsuccessful applications and as a result we are offering you the opportunity to maintain your record of consecutive applications in the ballot by following the link from this special invitation email to the Priority Online Ballot Entry System and completing your registration. The username and password provided below are exclusively for your use and cannot be used by anyone else; you must have completed your Priority Online Ballot Entry System application by 5pm on the 2nd of April 2012.
I ran in 2011 for charity in memory of my Dad. Rejected for 2012 & 2013 so whats my chances If any?
Hi Terry - don't think the fact that you have run it before or had rejections for the last 2 years makes a jot of difference. Tonnes of ballot applications and a lot, lot less places up for grabs so perhaps a 1/10 chance of getting in?
1 in 7 after charity places apparently.
125k applicants to close the entry, 37k runners includes charity places
