Does anyone know roughly when Edinburgh Marathon usually sells out? I'm reluctant to commit the cash too far ahead of time (but I've booked my hostel bed!) but I don't want to leave it too late and not get a place.

Last year it didn't sell out - entries closed around late January (I think) and it was possible to register right up until the deadline. I know this as I only realised it was closing 30 minutes before it did so had to rush in an entry.

I had a look on their Facebook page last year and noticed that it always seems to close just after the New Year.

4th January 2015
3rd January 2014
3rd January 2013
19th April 2012

They always give a countdown on their Facebook page.

Thanks! I'll make my mind up before Christmas. I guess lots of people sign up in a fit of New Year enthusiasm :)

the first year I ran, 2006, they had a ballot and I didnt get a place and had to join a club which then got me a place and having run it once I didnt need to enter a ballot again. Not sure when the ballot stopped, but donran is right, it hasnt beenselling outand also...depening on past times there are also GFA slots open until very late on
