Got a number of 56075 this year. Can I read anything in to this? Any ideas whether this means starting from the Green start or one of the others?

The number that I got with my acceptance last year was different to my acttual race number, so not sure if it does mean anything.

yes you're right - just dug out my number from this year totally different from the running number on the acceptance form. Oh well doesn't matter at this stage.

FLM have just chenged their numbering scheme - I know how it works for Gold Bond numbers but not for ballot entries - last year there were two numbers - one they gave out on the entry form and one number that they give you at the exhibition - your running number. They have abolished the double number system this year so the first number you are given is your actual running number. It makes their admin a lot easier this way. I'd imagine that, as they are doing this for Gold Bonds they are likely to be doing it across the board.

Does this mean my international Entry Number of 512 will be my race number????

Good, my number is 55 something which means both of us will be at the green start, from where i have started my last 2 marathons, this is the best of the 3 starts (red,blue & green) as it is the smallest which means we will get over the start line quicker...
