2018 London Marathon

The public ballot entry system for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon opens on Monday 1 May and closes at 17:00 on Friday 5 May 2017. The ballot will be open for five days to give everyone who wants to enter the event a fair chance to do so.

London has one other category that could be useful for some members called Good for Age, where the sliding scale of full marathon times by gender and age bands can ensure some runners are guaranteed places and can avoid the ballot.
