How late can I leave entering the Loch Ness Marathon?

I'm running the Brighton Marathon in April (my first) and am interested in running the Loch Ness Marathon too.  However, having never run a Marathon before, I might be all 'never again  wah'.  Dunno?  So, I guess it makes sense to run Brighton first and decide after, but will it still be open?  Does anyone know when the race tends to fill up?

Doesn't really fill up as such, but they close entry in July, so plenty of time to decide after Brighton.

Thanks.  Strange that they would close entry so early.  You'd think they would want the maximum amount of runners.  Anyway, that all works in my favour, so splendid news

they close it early so as to maximise those forced into taking up a charity place. lots of marathons do this now. bit of a swizz. this is the reason ive never run the loch ness marathon.

Hmm, I've failed to get in by leaving too late in the past and it is always full. Never eard anyone grumble about it before tho! It is a crackingrace and I would go back to do again. well worth the trip/effort from Wales

Is early May 'leaving it too late'?

If you are a member of a club entries don't close until September, I've always  waited till then and entered, too expensive to enter too early then find you can't do it! Fantastic race btw.
