6th time lucky, very very pleased!
Question has probably been asked thousands of times, when & why did they abolish the 5 rejections if you enter the 6th time you're in rule?
Right...as this is my first time I suppose the battle to book a Hotel room starts now?!
Any hints/tips - Is it better to stay as close to the start line as possible or would that be too expensive?

Ahhh....Thank you...I'll take a look now!
It's a hard task, especially when you get so many rejections.
Reading on Twitter there's people who have been rejected for even longer than me.
When did the 5 years rejection then automatically in after the 6th attempt get abolished?
After 6 long hard years of trying to get in to the London Marathon...finally...I'm in!
Who else is lucky enough to get in this time around?
Seen as though this is my first London Marathon I suppose the planning better start now.
Anybody got any hints/tips for best places to stay?
I'd say no more than a couple of mile but it was stopping and starting.
She went to the local JJB but she wouldn't get on the treadmill to check her foot gait, something about it being too busy?! I think she was "shy"
