Is it just me, or is the "link" for the good for age place for the VLM 2014 not there? It says it is meant to be live today but I can't find it anywhere??

It's not just you.
No links on the page at the moment. A very poor show.

At 6:00 this morning on Twitter they announced 'We'll let you know as soon as the Good For Age entry link is live on our website. You have until the 8th July to enter. Stay tuned!'.  I think they have  a few problems to sort out.

Now available.

I take it you've entered via the link. Have you heard anything back yet? I entered last week and haven't had an email back yet. I think it said 7 working days. Just curious how long it takes for the email to be sent.

Did you get the initial email ?

"Thank you for applying for a 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon Good for Age entry.

We will be checking your application and if accepted we will send you an email confirming your log on details and a link to allow you to complete and pay for your entry. You will receive this within 7 working days."

I got my accepted email 2 days later ? I'd check your spam folders maybe ? It comes through from -

Cheers Cougie.

Yeah got the initial email but haven't had anything in either of my folders. Will see if I get anything tomorrow and give them a ring if not.

Stan - did you get anything? I entered on 25th June and still haven't is now 7 days. Will ring tomorrow.....

I rang and they said they had already sent email, I told them I hadn't got it so they sent again. So worth ringing.

Thanks 15West - I will ring tomorrow. Did it take ages to get through on the phone? Thanks

I rang today and waited about 10 mins to get through to someone.  But when I got through my application was checked in a couple of minutes, got my confirmation e-mail and have now entered.  Worth a call as I am not sure how they are working through the emails as I applied on Tuesday 25th and heard nothing whilst others applied after me and have already received their confirmation e-mail.

Hi Kate,

I received my email today. I did ring them yesterday though and I think they're just working their way through them. Didn't take long to get through when I rang just a minute or two. See you on start line in April!

Brilliant- thanks

Took me no time to get through at all - and the person I spoke to put me on hold for about 1/2 minute and then it was all sorted. I rang mid morning.

05/07/2013 at 09:38

It's official- I'm in....woo hoo! I'm really excited. Thanks for your help and see you all next April. Kate xx

There is now a recorded message when you phone saying that provided you got your application in by the deadline, then you will hear back by the 17th July. I just phoned them up to verify that they'd got my application (they have), so now it's just a case of waiting.

same with me.  Phoned and they said they had got my details and should here by 17th.  Myay not be relevant to me of course due to my permanent shin splints since last vlm......
