Annabell- I would be very careful about putting your phone number on a totally public forum like that.
You really can't just ask people to give you their race places- if anyone has a succesful ballot place in London, and doesn't want it , they will almost certainly defer until next year. Ballot places are like gold dust- some people go years waiting for one.
You can still run the London marathon via the charity place route, but will hav eto raise a lot of cash.
Also- most races do not allow transfer of entries- obviously if you try to do a number swap without the blessing of the organisers, the time will be allocated to the wrong person, there are also all sorts of implications for insurance etc. I believe that unofficial swapping of race numbers carries a hefty penalty, in terms of potentially being banned from future race entries.
There are loads of other marathons going on in April/ may- why not enter one of them- but don't keep pinning your hopes on someone else giving you a race place.
