Just had my congratulations mag, it says I was rejected in the Ballot, but am one of the lucky 1,000 winners of the Bequest Draw.

That will do me,better start planning my long runs.

Rejection came this morning - not sure how many consecutive I've got now - 3-4 I think - complicated a bit as I did get a club place one year so I'm not sure if that cancels out a ballot rejection from the same year.   Oh well.

Anyone else still waiting? Gnawing my knuckles off at the minute!   

Good luck to all that got in, add it to the reject bedpost for the others. Sounds like there are several people quite relieved as they are nursing injuries or have had other problems since applying.

How does the system work with those places that are deffered? Presumably you're either in the ballot or not so you can't have the 'closest losers' situation? Is there another ballot?

Not in. 4th rejection but not consecutive. Checked out the charity route. They can whistle. £2k to run in London or £2k to run in NY. Hardly a tricky choice.

My postie has been early this morning and still no news either way. And I was a bequeather, so thought I would of heard by now. Even phoned up the Flora team on Friday and they confirmed they had my correct address. Anyone else in the same boat? I'm assuming it's a no and there's a fleece waiting for me at my post office somewhere.

Still no news!!!

My brother got in but i'm still waiting - no money gone and no magazine. What do you guys reckon? Is no news good news?

Didn't beqeath this year

 Don't think so. Mine shows as active, end date 7th and shows the next possible payment as being today. Still not in.

unfortunately I made a boo boo! The card I used actually expired 08/08........ so surely they'd try and contact me for the money or just reject me?

I'm not in either. Thats five consecutive rejecyions. So I'm guaranteed an entry in 2010. A bit disappointed but when the winter arrives and the weather is shit maybe i wont be!

Lucky to get on of the 1000 places in the Bequeathed Draw having been unsuccessful in the main ballot. Bequeathed last year and was unsuccessful. After looking through magazine now thinking about running for a charity without the pressure of having to raise a mininum amount. Congrats to all who have got places and commiserations to those that haven't.

I'm in - wasn't expecting that got used to getting jackets and fleeces

Damn this means i'm going to have to put down the pie and put on the trainers

Reject magazine just popped through the letter box for me and hubby too.

Oh well.... Stockholm looks interesting perhaps?

Congratulations and good luck to everyone with a place.

I'm confused..........just received my rejection for the 6th time?

I am supposed to have automatic entry next year???

 Anyone else got this problem?

I applied in 2003 in maiden name same address

then 2004,5,6,7,8 in married name same address

I will have to ring them on monday I suppose.

Talos, on the application it asks you how many times you've been unsuccesful in the ballot. Maybe you didn't answer correctly? Yes 5 unsuccesful attempts and you're in the next year so you should have ran this year  ie 2008. Hope they can do something for you now.
