Didn't get in with that ballot. Holding out hope now for the general ballot.

Anyone now the numbers who apply for the general ballot usually VS the number of non-charity ballot places available?

Will be doing my 16th this year. Luckily I didn't have to use that paper's ballot as wouldn't enter then. Got my entry through being a Great North Run member.

Thanks MeLAR. I've had some great advice already (including a direction to this website) and have downloaded an easy plan to get me started so all good so far!
