I'm not sure if I want to do it yet.
Can I just turn up on the day and run?


I've seeen lots of people in fancy dress Is it a more of a fun run?

well I heard that it's very quiet... no support, few runners, crap medal no tee or goody bag and really not worth the effort

I won't do it
























unless I get in!

I think it's over rated, and it smells.

Nobody else apply for a ballot place

















that's it Max......they may fall for it.

I heard that aswell Max, but I am pretty sure that it is one of those 'turn up on the day and run' things.

NT, DV says (I think it was DV) that it is further than the local pie and chip shop if that helps. My brother has done it a couple of times, he works in London and lives in Bristol so I am pretty sure he didnt have any time to train for it so it can't be THAT far.

So, does anyone know how do I get to the start ?

.... etc etc

Apparently there is a limo that comes to your door to pick you up in the morning :o)
Can't quite remember who told me but I have it on good authority he is a reliable source :o)

Welsh Alex, you come out of my flat and turn left for about 2 miles then right turn and walk for another 1.5 miles......well that's what I do anyway.

So no limo then Max :o(

Everywhere I've read indicates the odds of being selected are 1 in 5. Does that include foreign entries as well? I am from the USA and wondered if they select a certain number of foreign entries. With my luck, the odds on the foreign ballot is probably worse than 1 in 5.

I absolutely love London and the UK and I will be keeping my fingers crossed until December.

Regarding one of the above posts, I know the following is not true: very quiet... no support, few runners

However, what about the second half of the post: crap medal no tee or goody bag and really not worth the effort. Is that true, too??

Good luck everyone. I will hope to see you all in London in the Spring. Cheers.

So is anyone thinking of doing it then?
27/09/2006 at 14:58
Depend what else I got on on that day!!

I'm thinking of doing this one. Is it on or off road. I'd like to know because I can then subsequently post on what would be the most suitable shoe for an overpronator from Yorkshire, with a house numbered 85, who has no pet dog.

I think its road and you run past the queens house
