I agree David.  It hasn't stopped me putting my name into the hat though!

29/04/2013 at 09:10

I have no idea why I entered. Answers on a postcard please....

29/04/2013 at 09:26

I entered. It seemed like a good idea at the time, well past midnight with several drinks inside me and nothing but work to look forward to.

29/04/2013 at 09:37

Eeeeek! I've just entered as well! Considering my luck though I reckon I've got more chance of winning the euro lottery

I did three entries.none of them donated....i was tempted to put one in for david as well

Side - no because theres an extra draw to con ...er sorry to incentivise you to bequith your fee of 1000 places

I dont agree with it but thats the way it is. Theres precious few place in the ballot anyway. So its like having a ballot thats free to enter and another ballot you have to pay to get into ?

The event is all about money now and I can honestly see the day no one just wanting to run a marathon will get in. When this was the FLM there was a system in place that if you got rejected 5 years on the run you got in authomatically, I got in that way once. But thats been stopped now

Were they all for you Seren?  If so, what happens if you are successful under someone else's name?  I.e. Will they need to attend the expo to pick up the number themselves, or can you collect it 'on their behalf'?

You can go get someone elses number but I think you need to take a signed letter from them (well used to be the case anyway)

And.... it's closed.

No, I get that Schmunks!! Just the way that Seren suggested that she would for other races but specifically not for London?

Why all the downers about getting in? I got in twice in three years via the ballot a few Years back so don't assume it will be negative! Good luck!
