Hi, I do not want this post to become one of those "change the ballot entry system" posts one can easuly find every year right after the rejection letters are sent out.
I am running this year's VLM so my question is purely out of curiosity rather than frustration.
I often read and hear quite a lot of people saying they have done the London marathon several times and never worked out how that is possible.
Can someone confirm there are only 3 ways of entering it? GFA, ballot and charity? If so, what are the splits betwen them? Are the club places part of GFA or is this a 4th method?
So... people who have run London several times (up to 5 consecutive years) are either very lucky, very fast or with very generous friends.
