According to CRunCH...
...Apparently the 2011 VLM will be on 17th April.
However, they have also said that the ballot will open on 26th April 2010 so maybe take that with a pinch of salt.
Right, I`m booking the hotel for 15th, 16th, 17th April.
details in this year's Virgin Marathon runners pack said 'general ballot' opening on 4th May...
people who entered and lost out by entering into both the ballots for 2009 AND 2010 get priorty ballot entry, i think from 19th April till 4th May...
so who knows!!!
17th would be about right wouldn't it?
Hope you're right about the priority ballot cjbessex - my OH is on an automatic for next year and I'm entering for the 5th time so it would be good!
I have read elsewhere that its Sunday May 1st. The CHruCH website founder does have a link to LM. I think Andy Etchells use to be withRW so that date might be true. Either way its April 17th or May 1st as Easter is inbetween.
But I would wait until LM announce the date so we can start our annual moaning.
I didn't think it was ever in May? Would be nice though with the bank holiday....!
I have spoken to the London Marathon organisers and they said the following:
-Marathon 2011 is 17th April 2011
-if you entered the ballot 2009 and 2010 and failed to get in you will receive an email so that you can enter 2011 early. The link will work from 19th April -4th May
Re hotels, think they knew the marathon date before we did, the hotel room I have booked is already nearly twice the price of the normal sat night rate for the night before the marathon
Hope that helps. Am only repeating what they said on phone so dont shoot me if wrong
