Well the London marathon ballet how has now closed with a record number of entries with 253,930 people registering that's up 6,000 from last year which isn't so bad. I believe there are 17,000 starting places for the ballot entries. Good luck everyone I hope at least one of us gets in.
Also well done to Shannon Foudy who was the one millonth finisher running in her 1st marathon at a time of 5hrs 45minutes, and running for her local Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She only gets a special t-shirt and entry into next years race!
