I opted for Brighton for my first. I decided that while I liked the idea of London, I really didn't want the uncertainty of the ballot nor the money raising pressure ON TOP OF the training and running pressure. I think for the first the added pressure to reach a value might make it all far too stressed.
It's not like I can compare the two, and the way I feel now I never will.
I love both of them. I think I actually prefer Brighton, but London does have more of a buz about it. Can't go wrong with either. Each have pros and cons. Finishing Brighton on a warm day and heading straight for the sea at the finish is quite special though.
Totally agree with CM. Brighton is a fantastic race, London is very special.
There is one more way of getting into London - join your local running club. They (nearly) all get some places and usually put these up for ballot. That's how I'm in this year (damn them).
