Anyone been sent a ballot key that works? 

I got a second chance email today with a ballot key to input into the VLM website. I stick the number in, and it doesnt work!  This was sent to make up for the problems with the ballot system when it first opened.

Nice gesture, pity it does not work!

Nope, mine doesn't work either. The training will be a lot less effort than the entry system!

An email has just come through saying " sent in error". So thats the pleasant "second chance" offer taken away then!

Lets all ring up tomorrow and claim " emotional distress" due to their mistakes  which can only be resolved by getting a place in their marathon!

I'm glad I'm already in. I couldn't put up with all the "am I/aren't I" malarky again.

I'm glad I didn't enter.  I couldn't put up with all the "am I/aren't I" malarky again.

Just received a 2nd chance email because I have entered 4 years in a row but I haven't enetered this year!! I damn well did enter, have the saved email etc.....

Whats going on at Marathon HQ? Has somebody lost all the entries, someone hit the delete key?

I cannot complete the applicaton process because my realbuzz account already has my email address registered with them, and I cannot change the email address!!! 

Not a happy bunny

Same thing here Robert - I'm going to contact them by phone - got the confirmation of entry from earlier this year so hopefully not a problem.

I think there has been a major cock-up here!!

Robert Hilton, just leave the realbuzz account stuff blank, I did and it let me past.

Seems like my key was one of the few that worked!

 I had applied 4 years in a row and missed this year due to the speed it filled up, I swore at the computer a lot and cursed Virgin even more, I was amazed when I got this email. Virgin - i take it all back

Thank You!

thanks for that andy watson (a fellow Tigers fans as well, Altidore looks a good signing)

Going to try again now.

Completed the entry form, and received my confirmation email. So looks as if I am now back in the ballot!

Great news.

At least we signed someone, I hope more can follow!

Well I have had 5 rejections so I might ask them for a guaranteed entry into the Brighton Marathon,

Grrrr....I spent AGES back in April trying to get the ballot entry to go through without crashing....finally did it. But if only I'd known that a few months later I'd have got a second chance. Huh.

BTW - does anyone know how I notify VLM that my email address has changed? Just phone them up, or is there an online system to do it?  Or I could leave it - let's face it the next time they will email me will be (I presume) to tell me whether I am in or not....but I'll get a mag (and rejection jacket probably!) anyway. At least I'll be oblivious to any email traffic in the meantime!

What is this 'second chance' e-mail you're speaking of?  I haven't received anything.  Should I have done?
