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.

And when do we have to apply for entry? What kind of chance do you have
of getting in?

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.
