Not running this year but will apply monday morning. I ran last year but technically I was rejected because I got in through the bequeathed second 1000 place ballot. When I fill the online form out and put rejected last year they'll have it on their records that I only ran because of the second ballot won't they? So technically I've had two rejections so far.
Is it 4 rejections then in the 5th time?
if that makes any sense? lol I'm just kind of thinking in terms of accruing rejections as I dont think I'll get in next years either.
5 rejections and in 6th time . . .
dunno if success inthe 2nd ballot is or is not a rejection . . . . . . I would say that it should be . . . but . . .
Yeah I might check. I got a rejection letter but then also a letter saying thanks for bequeathing your money you're now in. Hmm, I dont want to lie on the form
Just called them, it doesn't count as a rejection because I ran. Thats a bit harsh I think, oh well not to worry will apply on monday anyway. About as much chance of me getting in as Newcastle staying in the premier league, lol
So you want another bite of the cherry while we wait patiently for our first?
You ran. Back to square one is the only fair way as far as I am concerned. I admire your honesty though. Some might have been tempted to do otherwise.
Yeah go down and watch/support people and take in the atmosphere. It's pretty inspiring as an event.
I do come across a bit cheeky wondering about a 3rd London marathon go, it's not like that really. I did only get in last year because I bequeathed my money to the cause, it's not like I cheated my way in, haha I'll apply on monday but I dont expect to get in. Will try and break 3 hours in Rotterdam for the guaranteed entry.
