Sent 2 letters  - nothing yet in the post and getting stressed- will try phoning

I've just rang up: A very helpful person confirmed I'd met the criteria and said it would be sent out now. She also said they were only half way through doing the mens' GFA entries. Must say that I've spoken with London Marathon people a few times over the last 4 years and have never come across anyone who's not been polite and helpful.

Ode: I'm a 'W' so was being a little impatient maybe. Although when I mentioned this to the girl on the  phone she did laugh as if to say, 'don't be silly, of course we're not sorting them alphabetically'.

I just spoke to someone there and "they are sending them out as we speak and are on M and working through them alphabetically" apparently. She was more than happy to confirm reciept of my proof of qualification using my postcode and said that they'd be out at the end of this week / early next week.

I realised when I got mine why they are taking so long - it's because they write all the envelopes out by hand

I have built up an image of the GFA office as being all candle light, quill pens and mounds of paper. Glad its not alphabetical as I'm a 'J' and would have thought they were well past that.

Cheers peeps.

This might sound silly, but I received my good for age form today, does this count now as a guaranteed entry? Or does good for age go to a ballot??

Provided you get the form back in time you are in. I think you will even see your runner number on the form (I say think, as I'm still waiting to see mine!)

ROBBO: you're definitely in.
