London Marathon Ballot system is a joke.

Hi. I was lucky enough to get a ballot place on my first attempt in 2012. Had to defer as I got injured during my training. Picked up another injury and a chest infection just before 2013, and was debating dropping out until the terrible events in Boston.

I thought that my niggles and lack of quality training were nothing compared to what those runners went through in Boston.


Best decision I ever made!!


I had the most fantastic day, ended up doing 5.28.26 due to my injury, but you know what, that doesn't matter!

Still limping but also still on a 'high'.


I said I would only do it once, but guess what, I've entered the 2014 ballot!!


Good luck everyone!

Running RaRa - all clubs get places in the marathon.
Elite runners get in. Any half decent runner can get in on a good for age.
They're all real runners.
