My Fleece arrived this morning so no Marathon for me. I started running in July and this was my first entry for a Marathon. Think I'll try the Watford half in Febuary.

Anyone else got in or got their fleece ?

Hard luck Emma, It took 4 times for me to get in but I kept my chin up, kept positive and enjoyed it all the more when I eventually got in!

Sorry to hear.
If at first you don't succeed...
27/11/2002 at 09:39
Sorry Emma

It took me 7 goes to get in through the ballot.

Don't give up!

Thanks for that, my partner has applied too and nothing arrived for him this morning so fingers crossed he will get in and I can continue training with him.

Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear.

hi everybody, new to the site, both myself and a friend are waiting to hear also, very nervewracking as a firsttimer.

Keep up the training and enter the Potteries, well organised and supported as well.

I'm not in either. Keep your rejection slip though, as this year FLM allow those with EVIDENCE of five straight rejections since 1998 to get in. I'm certain that with pressure "we" can get this down to 3 or 4 years on the trot. Its not much to ask: to be allowed to do the marathon once every World Cup - so long as you apply through the correct channels each year.

Sorry to hear that guys. It seems as if the Rejections have come out before the Acceptances this year.
Unless they've flogged ALL the places to charity and none of us are getting in ?

Theres talk elsewhere of everyone doing the Dublin Marathon - we can train through the summer and celebrate in Temple Bar. Now that does appeal !

can i just ask, did you have to sign for your fleece??, only my postman left a note to say i had something to sign and it was taken back to the sorting office, just wondering if it was my fleece!.
27/11/2002 at 12:18
nothing from postie for me today (well only the usual junk mail) just waiting for my fleece to arrive,1st time applicant so not feeling very hopeful.
27/11/2002 at 12:28
Saw the postman in person. It was in a black bag with 2 magazines in. Too big to fit through a standard letter box.
I didn't realise how difficult it is to get into the marathon until I strated looking at the forum ! I don't feel quite so depressed now, could take another few years before I get in. Might have to try for another one in a sunnier city.

but did you have to sign for it??
27/11/2002 at 13:00
No. No Signing.

27/11/2002 at 14:31

I got an M&M's catalogue this morning and Exodus holiday catalogue yesterday morning. I wonder if I will get a tough luck magazine tomorrow?
27/11/2002 at 15:01

Just the usual three credit card applications for me today. Not even my copy of Kerrang! arrived (and I'm not sure which I'm more upset at not getting....!).

Though it looks like we've got the confirmation of our holiday too (addressed to the Mrs)! Hurrah!
27/11/2002 at 15:36
I have a card from my postie saying i have a recorded delivery letter awaiting collection! What can this mean (jury duty!) or something else? has anybody else had this. Will let you know what happens when i collect thursday.
