The ballot entry system is now live at http://www.virginlondonmarathon.com/marathon-centre/enter-2010-virgin-london-marathon/

Good luck everyone!

thank you for that

you're as sad as me. I entered at 4:30!
27/04/2009 at 06:35

Checked the site on the off chance and there it was live thought it didn't open till 9.

Oh well I've applied.

Think it opened at midnight, had my entry in by half past, all a tad easier than last year's attempts!

Thanks Ibecks!

Got mine in....

It's all Shade's fault. I swore I'd only ever do one and now I'm booking my second and planning my third.....

And my first was only yesterday!

lol Liverbird! How did you get on yesterday?

I thought I was an early bird by applying at half 6, seems like everyone else has had the same idea. Did anyone else go for the very dashing rain jacket that looks like a crisp packet? Here's hoping for a place in 2010! FIngers crossed until October.

mine was in before 3 this morning  expecting my 5th rejection

Damn, the good for age deadline appears to be in August rather than I believe January previously. My debut is not until September so I have no chance to get in this way.

all done

Got rejected 5 years in a row, got my rejection place for the 6th year and deferred through injury. Gave up the place this year as got married  (there was a moment yesterday when I regretted that decision lol-the place not the marriage), so back on the trail now. Not going to go down the charity route as it's a lot of pressure so fingers crossed.

Thats it, fingers crossed now! gutted about the good for age cut of though, was banking on that being after Berlin, guess im gonna have to build up some serious good karma to get a ballot place now instead!

Ooh ta.  Thought I'd read the ballot opened at 9am - thought it'd be a rush to do it when I got to work!

I can't get the page to load - has it crashed already?
27/04/2009 at 07:47

Wouldn't load the first couple of times I tried Mouse.  Keep trying.

Kept expecting my dodgy pc to crash while I was going through the 7 pages but, thankfully, it behaved itself.

ok thanks

*twiddles thumbs*

thanks for info just entererd (at 23 miles yesterday i said never again ) expect to get another 5 rejections before i get in again so will be up for it again by then!
27/04/2009 at 07:52
I'm in. Did it about 30 mins ago, no website problems at all.  Didn't pledge this year, if they did women's sizes I would have done!
27/04/2009 at 08:10
Has the link / virgin site crashed?
27/04/2009 at 08:15

site has crashed AGAIN. nice of the dodgy s###-bags to open early so no-one can get near it at the proper opening time. hoped this lot would be better organised but obviously not. did note though that i received e-mail yesterday offering a bond place, not bad as there were still people out on the course!!!

27/04/2009 at 08:18

It's really slow - Ive been trying since 07:45, furthest I got was page 2 and it crashed. Ive just been waiting 5 mins for the front page to load

Just like yesterday.....keep plodding along and persevering and it'll come right in the end!
