London Marathon Applications

Discussion in 'Health and Fitness' started by Jimima_Shark, Apr 17, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone out there know how the organisers of the London Marathon select runners from the ballot of entries submitted?

    Is there a way (other than running for a charity) to improve your chances of being selected? ie is it first come first served or if you have applied before.

    Any help would be appreciated.



    ps I will obviously be applying for 2007 as I think its a bit short notice for next weeks race.

    Its a lottery

    I applied 3 years in a row, I'm running this years
    It really is the luck of the draw...

    ...but if you go to a running club they may get places, also there are corporate places if you work for a big company , sometimes
  3. Thanks Polar,

    Hope you enjoy it!
