Okay so waiting for me at home last night was a very nice waterproof running jacket and a letter explaining that I hadn't made it for next years London Marathon. A fine bottle of wine and a few ports later I seem to have got over the shock and plan to try and secure a guaranteed entry from a charity. From your experience which charity would you choose and why? Both from a worthwhile cause and who gives best support point of view. Help 4 Heroes - Great cause but no guaranteed slot ABF - May have places left, good quality T Shirts and support at end (Brews, Sandwiches and a well needed Massage last time) Combat Support - Great cause not sure if they have guaranteed places.
