Hi guys, just registered.

 Thought I'd try, surely it should be too early, but the ballot was open.

Let the training commence, 1 year... and a 1 in 7 chance, oh, probably not then.

Who else has registered ?

Good luck everyone!

10th application made- never gotten in on the ballot so holding out no hope

Haven't even got a confirmation email yet even though the page says application has gone in.

Me and my boy both entered...places filling fast, over 40,000 already. I'm in the not donating category as I don't need any more limited edition jackets!

I've done it as well...  I was told that it was opening at 9am but that means that I can head out for my run early

Pity we have to wait 6 months to find out whether we're sucessful or not!
30/04/2012 at 08:53
Agreed^^^ Wish they'd let people know sooner.

I've entered but not got email confirmation yet. Anyone got email?

Do they cut the ballot off at a certain number of entries?

Yes, they cut it off at 125,000. No, I've not had an e-mail either, but am still hopeful!

I'm in (the ballot at least!) Wasn't up when I checked before I went to bed at about 12:30 last night, but was taking entries when I was up changing a nappy at 3 this morning

^^ Classic multi-tasking. You deserve entry for that alone. Good luck everyone
30/04/2012 at 09:12
I was going to ask if anyone has got a confirmation email, but that seems a little superfluous now
30/04/2012 at 09:14
i got mine about 30 mins after i entered at 12:45 last night. just as i was falling asleep. stupid phone beeping.

I have just entered. I don't think I'll be lucky but it is worth a try. It would be nice for a first marathon, but I have a place in Brighton.So I am hoping that my fitness and training will go well for next year

Check your spam mail guys! My confirmation email went straight into there.

hey jelleybaby - i'll be celebrating my 40th if i get a ballot place - hope to see you there running with balloons too! (3rd time lucky & fingers crossed!)

Just entered the ballot. Would be my first marathon after a couple of half's!

Think i will enquire through contacts i have in a few charities to see if they can help too...
