Isn't it about a week or two after this years race.

Thanks LS21!

I will make sure I set my alarm early on the 22nd. I did a golden bond place once, the charity were great ( CLDF) but raising the money was very difficult. Decided I would just enter the ballot every year until I got in again.

Oh don't people say they manage to enter just after midnight on the day entries open and don't they close within a few hours?  Let the panic begin

does that actually work? Wasn't that bothered this year but now I have serious marathon envy. Never thought I would say that!

How long did it take for this year's ballot to fill up?

12/04/2014 at 23:05

It was full within 10 mins. amnasty international, cancer research and the royal society for the prevention of fwuffy bunny trauma took all the places.

Does that mean if I exterminate lots and lots of fwuffy bunnies I have more of a chance?

Lisalamb: don't worry you have weeks and weeks *

 

* technically I'm not quite right, about 11 hours last year.

13/04/2014 at 18:40

Yup, about 11 hours last year and that was 6 hours quicker than the year before.

Can anyone help me; if I sign up via the ballot for VLM 2015, when do they take the entry fee for the race, now? Or in October when places are confirmed? 

Also, if I pay now, and I don't get a place, do I get my money back ?

Thanks

Jeez, does it really close that fast?

I'd like to know the same as Jazz, and also what personal info they need for the ballot entry, as I've got to enter my friend as well as he's away on the day the ballot opens.

Does it really open at midnight?  Don't particularly want to stay up to do it!

Thanks
