Ballot places

This year the ballot for the London Marathon has been changed. The ballot will now open on Monday 4 May 2015 and, instead of closing when the limit is reached, will stay open until Friday 8 May 2015. This will allow a lot more people to apply for a place than in previous years. You will then find out if you have been successful in the ballot in October 2015.

To apply through the ballot please take a look at the London Marathon website from Monday 4 May 2015.
