VLM 2013 Ballot 30th April!

Postby Woolly » Mon Apr 23, 2012 11:49 am

Who's inspired to run London next year or like me would like to do it again with some unfinished business to resolve!!!



Online ballot entries open 30th April 2012, like a raffle and names drawn around October!

I still remember that lovely commiserations magazine last year!



Prince Harry let it slip that Wills and Kate Middleton be running it in 2013!! Do they enter the ballot too, or are they a guaranteed entry!!?

So, the ballot is now open. Who's applying?
My name is not really Sheila, or Iris. It's just plain old Laura.

The ballot's a bit rubbish if you ask me. For example, Nancy got a ballot place 2 years in a row, some people don't get one for years!!! Maybe you should be banned from entering if you ran the last year!



Just looked at the times required for a 'good for age' place (who's laughing?), unless I can pass for 65 that's a no-go (don't answer that)



I am considering applying for a charity place, but I may be tempted to look further afield for a 2013 marathon....maybe Paris?
