The public ballot for the 2015 marathon is set to open on April 22 2014. Last year some 125,000 applications were received in just 11 hours. It is expected to be the same format again this year, with 125,000 people able to register before the ballot closes.

People who are successful or not find out by way of a magazine through the post later in the year?

How can I make sure I get a place?

The only way of getting a definite place, other than being a world class athlete, is to run for charity. Charities expect a certain amount of money to be pledged in exchange for the place. A guaranteed spot means that you can begin your training earlier.

To find out all the details and to register on April 22 go to www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com
