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!

If you were born after the 12th day of the month - you'd notice that it was the American system.

Does anyone have the no. to call handy?

I just got my confirmation through (applied last Friday).

The good news is it now says "Good for Age" application, not Championship.

The bad news is the date of the event is stated as 21st April 2014.  Which is a Monday

Who exactly do they employ to do this stuff??!!

Maybe that's your estimated finish?

In which case "Good For Age" might be stretching it a bit

That's why I questioned the race date, it looks like they've just copied and pasted the email text without changing the date or something.

Applied last Thursday, not heard yet

I applied last Weds soon after they opened and have just received the emailed confirmation.  I'm now in. 

I'm pretty sure the date is the 13th.

At £32, has it gone up?  I thought it was £28 last year.  Nonetheless a long way to go to reach Brighton's cost and a long long long way to go to regulate the demand...

03/07/2013 at 15:24

 I paid £35. ...because I'm not in a club?

My acceptance email says championship entry. Does everyone's say that? 

03/07/2013 at 16:32

Still waiting

I think it's going to be busy at the championship start this year.
