Was right at the end of sept or 1st week in Oct the last couple of yrs so not long to wait.

I think that they are due about the first week end in October, so around the 6th, as Millsy 1977 says not long now, finger crossed for every one

 I have got a place in Brighton marathon next year, so this is probably the year that I get a place in London, too It will be my first marathon, so which one shall I do first?

14/09/2012 at 17:12

Whichever is on the earliest date

Didn't enter this year, but Mrs Cat5 did.

I really hope she gets in.

I'd live to get in again.... But the odds are against me!

Do London, it's harder to get in Plus - I may be wrong but I believe Brighton allow you to defer for a year if you get into London. Both are great though.

I too have entered Brighton and London. I did London this year but had to pull out at 13 miles due to injury so entered Brighton on the thought that I wouldn't be lucky enough to get into London this year again. Hubby has his injured entry from London this year so I guess I will be running one week and spectating the next.

I'm still in the old five strikes and your in scheme. Was rejected in 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008, so this should be the year.

I wish i was a z list celebrity "runner" who doesn't need to apply to enter. No need for them to worry about the rejection mag!!!!

The celebrities get their places through the charities mainly, not directly through the organisers do you can't blame them for that. Although you could blame them for selling too many entries to the charities rather than "proper" runners but I think that's been discussed on here many times before.

Without the charity runners the London marathon would just be another big city run and wouldn't get 6 hours of prime TV coverage.

First marathon entered. Not fussed if i get in !! funny if i did
