Just looked at the website and despite VLM promising to open GFA entries on the 24th June there is still no link. 

i called  them yesterday and they claimed that they would set it up yesterday afternoon.  They did not.  

Any idea when or indeed if Gfa entry will actually open this year?

Maybe after all the GFA controversy they have decided not to do it this year. I can see the time coming when they do.

I think they need the GFA to make sure the race flows properly. Otherwise you'd have the elites, and then hardly anyone else for the next half hour.

The TV coverage missed out all of the 2.45- 3.30 finishers so at some point I can see them getting rid of the GFA. They only get about 30 quid from the GFA entries and a lot less fundraising. They could probably flog the placed to charities and make a fortune.
Maybe I've just got my cynical head on today.

Does anyone know if they are accepting GFA entry times for that short (all bar the winner) marathon. Was it Sunderland or somewhere?

Or that person who had the very dubious splits for a race on the south coast.

That one who had GFA time under her name but was actually run by a man using her name?

they wouldn't accept the cardiff half results a couple of years ago when it was proved to be short.......on the power of 10 it wasn't counted.they put a special indicator against the time I believe indicating it was short
