I know it's a bit early. Application forms are now available online. Good news for me, qualification time is a bit softer this year. Means I do not have to go via tour operator.

Starting the list:

I'm going to pretend I haven't seen this thread.

I'm already in trouble for wanting to do Amsterdam in October.

Great race though and I could just about manage a trip to NY in early November......

I am also trying to ignore this thread. I have got a guaranteed place because I went to New York to do the marathon last year, got sick and had to cancel.

I really don't want the expense all over again and it will eat into my 2005/6 holiday entitlement.

But I'd also like to go....

Sunday, November 6, 2005 is the magic day :)

I definitely want to to NY this year but don't know whether to wait until after FLM before I apply (I'm hoping to improve on my previous marathon time).

Is it feasible to enter via the ballot or is it safer to go via a tour operator?

209 is sold out already!!!!

Have to look at the others.

Ohhhh... now... I wonder.

Sports tours don't say they are sold out. Their basic Fly/Entry package is £569

Josie -- stoppit! Really don't tell me that

I've entered the Lottery. Fingers crossed :-)

Me too ;-)))

Went with sports tours was fantastic!! DO IT!!

Went with Sports Tours in 2003 and got in through the ballot last year. I must not apply this year. I must not.

I've just entered the ballot, does anyone know what the odds are? I assume they're less than the FLM ballot.

I said I was try for this pre-Christmas, then it was Washington, and Cardiff yesterday...bother...choices!
When does the ballot close, in other words, when do I have to make a decision by?

Application and Instructions

"International lottery applications will be accepted until midnight on May 1, 2005"

Andy, it said on the form that 40% of ballot get in. If I don't get in there's always Dublin..

Thanks a couple of months to decide. Maybe I should just focus on Prague first (my spring adventure)!
02/02/2005 at 08:58
or Cardiff. I've always fancied doing NY though.

NYCM 2004 was one of the best days of my life.

I still have "way to go Gareeee!" ringing in my ears.
