Anyone know the date of 1999 London Marathon. I am organising an event and
need to avoid a clash of dates.
The Flora London Marathon will be in Sunday 18th April 1999.

Application forms will be avaiulable in August I recall reading. As for your
chances of getting in, last year about 80,000 entered and 40,000 were
accepted of which nearly 10,000 didn't actually run so about 50%. Number of
available places is limited by the course and facilities so the only
variable this time will probably be the number of entrants. If you want a
better chance I suggest you keep quiet about it !
Not everybody is aware that if you don't get accepted many charities will
give you a place as long as you undertake to raise a specific minimum amount
in sponsorship. Minimum is probably around GBP600 - I ran in 1996 for
Barnardo's and had to get GBP750.
