You contradict yoursef. Its not a true ballot if people are picked depending on what they put on the forms. If it was a true ballot then the possibilty of all finishers being between 4.00 and 4.30 would be a possibility
So in fact the ballot is a ballot in time frames ie its decided up front that there will be an even flow of runners so theres mini ballots within the time scales ie a ballot for all those putting 3.30 to 4 another for those putting 4.30 to 5
But of course I can understand why its done this way
I have got in!
And based on that, I think that the ballot is fair and just.
Probably not the greatest British marathon. I p[referred the Brighton Marathon for its finish, great welcome.

That's wonderful. It could get better.
If they can add Irish descent Jewish with a speech impediment to that list it'll get them a frontline job at the BBC.
And a guaranteed televised (well paid ) run (plus interview by colleagues) as well.
