Last night before I went to sleep, I saw an announcement that entries for the lottery to enter the 2014 Virgin London Marathon opened today, April 29, 2013. This is a huge marathon, one I’ve wanted to run. So my plan for this morning was to enter the lottery and to write a blog post informing others of this.
Except, I woke this morning, and only to learn that the ballot has already closed after being swamped with entries.
We’re sorry but the online ballot for the 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon is now closed. If you’ve already entered the ballot, we’ll let you know in early October whether you’ve been successful.
There are still other methods of entry – and they are listed on this page. They are:
Good for Age entries
UK Athletics Club entries
The 2014 Virgin Money London Wheelchair Marathon
Deferred entries due to injury or illness
Of course, there is always the possibility of entry by waiting another year, or just choosing another race. There are certainly many others. Isn’t it insane how popular the sport of marathoning has become?
This is one of the funniest videos ever – Its hilarious! The Day After The London Marathon!
