Is this the last one where folk get a guaranteed entry for five rejections?

I believe so. That's how I found out, with an e-mail giving me priority entry to the ballot opening on 19th March

That's just typical isn't it as if i get knocked back this year that would be four and i would have been guaranteed next time oh well!!

The advantage, though, is that fewer folk will enter with no intention of running simply to defer because they have to keep up their record of applications. That's what I'm hoping anyway, seeing as how I'll never run 3.10.

I have two bites of the cherry for GFA between now and then.

I ain't chasing them. It'll have to wait until either a year when I'm fitter, or 20 years or so when the target's so much easier ;-)

Always last
Got my email for the "priority entry ballot" last night as well.. Having been rejected 4 times previously it looks like I'm doing the 2013 VLM :-O I'm sure I've seen a thread round here somewhere about advice for first time marathoners???? ;-)
