Paid your fee upfront? Chances are, you didn't get in!
undercuts PP: 250 + tight shorts (slightly less salubrious GFA place), only offered to scammed Leeds runners. Essex runners need not apply. No Australians (do Sydney).
Ok. From the variety of different opinions we can agree to disagree but this is what I will do next year. Apply but don't pay and if I don't get in, give my £35 to charity. I don't need an more loser jackets thanks. my chances might even improve, allegedly? Thanks for the comments though folks.
Just to go back to the beginning - I didn't bequeath my entry fee and didn't get in. A friend did pay up front, and she did get in - on the 1000 extra places ballot. So it worked for her.
They used to be proper posh like, with sinks an' all. Carpet too. Now they're just ordinary portaloos with shorter queues.
My jacket's very short in the arms.
Carpet in a portaloo
Maybe 225 is fair on reflection; there was certainly no carpet. I'll rethink this one - I don't want to be accused of a scam.
I thought with a celebrity name like yours Curly you would be in the very posh tent.
Has the OP got tickets for Glastonbury or is that a scam as well?
If Glastonbury had any sense they would make that a ballot too.
With an option to bequeath to the X Factor contestants beneavolent fund if you don't get in?
There are posh loo's when you run GFA!?
*gone for run*
Just to add to the conspiracy theory, this year 23 people in our circle of friends,family, etc. applied, non bequeathed, ( yes we are tight buggers) and guess what? No-one got accepted, so try again next year. Good luck to those who succeded
Dave.don't let fact get in the way of a good conspiracy theory.........
the fact is very very few did get in via the ballot...
That detracts from the conspiracy theory.
I bet if London went down the Boston route, there would be even more complaints. There is a guaranteed way to get in and that is to train and get a GFA time. But it seems people with do anything for a place...but they won't do that.
Excuses the dots but if was for my Meatloaf effect.
