The VLMM website now says refer back for details of how to apply after 13th June!

Good luck everyone

Thanks. I'll make sure all of my documents are in order.

what documents do i need - is it just a certificate from previous race with time on? Do we have to pay now or when accepted? How does it all work?

They will tell you what you need to send. Last year I had to pay once I had sent my proof of time

Last year you needed certificate of your time or link to website results and then passport / driving licence to prove ID.

I use an app called cam scanner where you just photograph the documents and then it converts them into a PDF file which you can then email to your PC.

I think they have a check of the documents and then send you a link to confirm and pay. I think this was a week or so after sending off the results.

Was a pretty simple process from memory.

Thanks for the app tip Millsy! I should have all the documents as applied last year but PC and scanner both out of use with decorators in. I seem to remember sending my passport and driving license pics last year plus link from results.

Strange question but anyone know how much it is to enter?
12/06/2014 at 13:57
Last year you needed proof of ID - so passport or driving licence (something with a photo and would have your DOB), plus proof of UK residence (e.g. utility bill or bank statement). Plus the proof of marathon time of course

Runningowl - something around ??35 or thereabouts I think.

Website still saying return on the 13th June..........

13/06/2014 at 09:17

I know I keep referring back. I have GFA a few times and every year the entry procedure is different! I do hope it is not going to be more complicated!

its going to be an F5 day today

13/06/2014 at 10:16

All Done - hopefully in now with my 2:57 at aged 40 - happy days

13/06/2014 at 10:29

All done??! When I go to the website it still says to check back on 13th June! 

Edit - tried again and now it has the link. That's weird.

New style 'photo' driving licenses have your address on (as well as photo ID and DOB)

i used passport - but driving license will do i think

13/06/2014 at 11:16
Done, I had better train for it properly this year.
13/06/2014 at 11:33

Woo! I've applied now as well.

The UK Residence proof tripped me up a bit, but I just took a photo of my last bank statement and wrote Copy across it in Photoshop. Fingers crossed that's enough for them...

13/06/2014 at 12:13

Applied .  Have had to use driver's licence for proof of age AND proof of residence and not sure they'll accept that.......
