I'm 18 and have ran the VLM this year after surpisingly gaining a place through the ballot first time. I have entered the ballot again for next year, by which time I will be 19.
Whilst running the marathon last week it came to my attention that there were very, very few young runners aged 18-22.
From my limted personal experience it seems as if Marathon running is not really a 'young mans game'.....
Therefore, is it possible that people in my age bracket have a greater chance of gaining a place considering less people my age will be entering?
or is it COMPLETELY random?
