is it or not???
Yay got my email so I'm now entered. It is on 13th April isn't it?
I think so, though it did say 20th on the registration site!
I entered last tuesday and have heard nothing yet. I am slightly concerned that there was no way of checking what you had loaded before you hit submit? I know I have qualified and have entered via GFA before (when I knew exactly what was going in the post!!!) but a bit worried that if didn't load properly then I won't be accepted. Anyone else still waiting for the email 7 days later???
Me too Laudy! I entered last Tuesday and not yet heard so called Virgin yesterday. They explained that they are short staffed at the moment and have over 3k applications to go through. She said they would contact people if there was a problem with the application. It worried me as there were lots of people on twitter saying they had now paid for their places! But I suppose we just have to be patient. I wish they used social media more to give updates though. It takes less than a minute to send a tweet - must be more efficient than having to answer the phone all day to impatient runners!
I also have not heard anything...no need to overly worry though. I will call at end of week if haven't heard.
Applied last Wednesday and still waiting to hear from them. To be fair, it does say you'll hear from them within 7 working days. doesn't seem to be too well organised. At first it said check the website at the end of May, then they added in June that you had to go back for the link on 24th. wasn't until after 24th that they added the link and even then it wasn't very clear(to me anyway).
Waited long enough already so a few more days won't hurt. Would be nice to put minds at rest though.
I applied last Tuesday and hadn't heard, so I called this morning, they found my details and said that I needed to supply a proof of address, so I have now emailed that to them.
I called this morning and they said they haven't got as many people as they need to go through all the applications... They confirmed they've received mine so just need to wait for the email now.
Mine also says "Championship Entry" on my comfirmation email, everything prior to that says "Good for age entry".
Got the email now to apply, mine also said championship entry.
I applied laser Tuesday too and still nothing. Guess i'll give them a couple more days but getting twitchy too! Closing 8th July is a fairly short window.
You would think/hope that if they needed further info like for you madmillie they would email/ call. That would be far too sensible though....
Last Tuesday even........
I got the email to apply within a couple of hours so it may be worth giving them a call.
Nothing yet. Applied last Tuesday. I do not recall entering birth date in American format - surely I can't be the only one who missed that. I meet the age requirement regardless. Used a drivers' licence for proof of address because that is the only official proof I have. e-bills make these things such a pain in the neck!
Does anyone have the no. to call handy?
