I am sure it's been asked before...
Hello everyone, I did it and came in a surprising 3 hours 42 minutes, so it seems I qualify for a quarantied 2009 good for age entry. Please help me, I couldn't find any info on it. Does it mean that I don't have to apply for the online ballot? Thanks, and well done all
From what I remember about GFA entry, you do NOT go through the general ballot but apply on a completely separate entry. Having said that, things have changed this year, with it being an all-online affair!
Well done on your time by the way! It's a fantastic achievement. I have no idea how old you are, so I don't know if it is a GFA qualifying time. I thought GFA for under 49 females was 3.15 (which I will never do in a blue moon)
I am delighted for you Edith, that you have a GFA! You must be like Speedy Gonzales!
Bloody well done!
The FLM website is best avoided at the moment, as I hear nothing but trouble from other forumites! As you will have a guaranteed place, I wouldn't worry about it too much. The closing date for applications is not necessarily fixed this year. and cannot be relied upon as I believe they are closing it when they reach 120,000 applications.
I could only get near 3.45 if they allow heelies.....
I am in the same situation 3:42:59 and have found I have to apply by the closing date for a GFA entry for 2009, and the closing date isn't stated on the website! I think I will leave it a few weeks, and then phone them.
