Er yes - I haven't even done a half yet so possibly might be a good thing to get rejected!!

Fleetgirl - I've never done a half either, but i've done a marathon!!

I'm off to work shortly, but will keep my fingers crossed for you.  If you get in don't panic there's plenty of time for training and you can do the Fleet half next March as a training run.

Good luck.

Have signed up for Reading Half which is on the same day.  I don't want anyone I know seeing me!

Maybe a stupid question but I've got a place in 2010, the magazine isn't overly clear. Do you have to send back the acceptance form to kind of confirm you'll be taking part or do you only have to send it back if you need to correct any details on it?

I'm in - got my email telling me so today!

This will be my first marathon (after deciding that I really didn't want to make London my first oh well)..

 I suppose I'd better pay!

Has anybody else had emails today?

i've had nothing yet and i think i'm going to break the refresh button if i press it much more!! the suspense is killing me!!

No email, no post, going slowly mad. Brother got his rejection Friday!

Fleet - Awwwww i'm gutted for you, i was really hoping you'd get a place.

K8 - No, all you do now is pay.  Keep the acceptance form somewhere safe

Stephen - Yes, just got my email  5 minutes ago.

Stillsmiling - London will be perfect for your first marathon, the crowd support will help you through.  I did Paris as my first and felt a bit lonely at times.

Finally the email arrived  -  I'm in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Commiserations FG. I got me email an hour ago.

 Chunky Chops here's what to expect:

By now you should have received the news that your application to run in the 2010 Virgin London Marathon was unsuccessful. This news was contained in our Marathon News "Rejected" magazine which should have been delivered to you by post.

We are aware of some postal difficulties in certain parts of the country and if your area has been affected then your magazine may be delayed a little.

There is still a chance to run however as the magazine contains details of charities that have Guaranteed places through our Golden / Silver Bond schemes so why not consider running for one of them.
