I guess I could always try to get my marathon PB down from 5:08 to 3:10 and avoid the ballot altogether. ha!

How soon can someone start the "Its not fair, my mate/boss/cat got in at first attempt and I didnt despite me running 100 miles a week and entering every year since 1066  and them not even owning a pair of running shoes" thread

Yeah I like that one as well - £2,000 how much, don't they know there is a recession on, why do they get so many places etc.

which is the most obscure charity offering a place, you know, in aid of blind mexican penguins?? also which charity offers the "cheapest" place for fund raising....

Blind Mexican Penguins! I'd run for them. Poor little fellas.

Can't beleive it, I'm in.  Checked that link last night and got magazine this morning. First attempt. So pleased as always wanted to do it, fingers crossed for those of you still waiting to hear.

Franners - the guaratee entry after 5 rejections no longer operates, I'm afraid. Enjoy Brighton - its fab. Manchester for me, I think.

It still does for those of us that were so far along the rejection scale. I think Franners and I must be in the last year that it still operates. If I get rejected this year I'm in for 2014.

I guess I should be expecting the rejection magazine when I get home. Much like Christmas it comes once a year.

Or you can really wind yourself up and look on twitter at the "Didn't get a place for the London Marathon... phew, i'd forgotten i'd entered!!" posts.

Mo farah didn't make the ballot either so going to stick to 10km.

I am going to get a Championship place and avoid the ballot! lol

27/09/2012 at 13:22

Think I'll treat myself to some new shoes. Only been running about 18 months. Started to lose weight then got the bug and started in races this year. 3 halfs and 4/5 shorter races.  Entered the ballot with no hope of getting in and wham straight in........frantically looks for a training plan 

27/09/2012 at 13:23

nice one gaz! I would recomend going at getting gait analysis done if you are planning on doing the big one...

27/09/2012 at 13:50

These penguins are sure getting a lot of press recently...should help their fundraising efforts! Minibus and sombreros are within touching distance now.

Reject for me...Brighton here I come
