Hi - does anyone know how many places are offered to those who enter through the ballot for next years London marathon (2013). I did the race last year (2011) through a gold bond charity place and it was great to raise what I did in the end (nealy £3k!). I would really like to run the race again next year, however without having to raise charity funds this time as I feel like I have asked friends and family for enough. If I apply in the ballot I wonder what my chances are of getting a place outright would be?. Thanks alot

I think it's normally about a 1 in 5 chance. They let 100,000 enter the ballot for 20,000 places.

Not sure if that's the case this year though.

Doing exactly the same all good for the charity but it's a big ask to do it again asking the same people for money!

I have a question as well about London if the OP doesn't mind my asking. I've never registered for this before, but when you enter do you have to pay anything on the day you enter or only if you get offered a place? Also any ideas on how much the entry fee is this year?

thats right, around 1 in 5.

Does anyone know what the GFA qualifying times will be for VLM 2013?

They only have the previous year's GFA times up. But looking at your picture, it would suggest a 3h10 time might be relevant if they haven't updated the rules.
