I wouldn't say absolutely no chance but pretty slim. If you can raise the cash there are always guaranteed charity places. I got in the second year of trying.

You're chances are pretty much the same as everyone else I should think. I was in the same situation as you last year and managed to get a place along with 3 of my friends, so it is pretty much a cross your fingers and wait...

Hi Jon

Not Brighton - on for Blenheim this weekend. I think the next after that will be the Bedford Half in December. Fancy breaking that PB?
cheers

You have three chances of getting in:
in the ballot
through a charity
through your Club (if you are a membmer of one)

Ditto to what Dangly Spice said above - wait and see if you get through in the ballot, if not try and apply for a charity place.

My guide to entering the London Marathon.
