orapidrun - I was lucky as I entered the last year before it became a ballot (2012), so I got in on a first come first served basis. It's certainly a popular event and much like most other big city marathons one that's becoming more popular year by year.
I'd imagine the odds might be slightly better than they are for London, but I'm not sure how the ballot separates out allocation of places to foreigners. From a UK perspective it's not a race that seems to attract much interest at all, not sure if that is also how it plays out from other nations.
