Has anyone received their "accepted magazine" yet??

Letter says they're sent out in September, I haven't got anything yet. Getting slightly paranoid, as I asked them to use the fee I put in for the standard ballot to pay for my GFA place (they said this was fine on the phone, but I'm getting paranoid that it's all gone wrong!)

I have not received anything yet but will post here when I do. I would not worry at this point, as I was not expecting any notification until early October.

I received it today!, (yay) I also received the rejection jacket for donating my normal ballot fee! So I've definitely managed to confuse them! Will have to call today and send jacket back!but I'm in!

Did you get a GFA time after you initially applied for the ballot ?
No need to send back the jacket - I doubt they'll refund you.

Yeah, I got gfa time in may, after I'd already replied and donated my fee! When I submitted my gfa, I didn't pay anything because they said they'd allocate my original ballot fee, but then surely I shouldn't have got a jacket?!

I did have a mini heart attack when I saw it when I got home last night!

Haven't received mine yet.  Anyone else still waiting?  They don't seem to have debited my account either..

Question for those who've had GFA before: Are all the GFA runners all in together in their own pen or are GFA runners split by times? Ive just bettered by GFA time and wonder if worth telling them

There's a separate Fast GFA area at the front of the red start. Not sure what the cut off point is, maybe sub3h15. Presumably GFAs that aren't in this pen are in the other pens somewhere.

Also, the Fast GFA has 3 pens in it as well but they pretty much merge into one as you're led round to the start.

Good question Johnas, I was wondering how the GFA start works as well, are you in with ballot people and charity runners, are there then "pens" according to your time?
