London Marathon Alternatives
The London Marathon Ballot results are out, and there are a lot of disappointed runners who didn't get a place. If you're one of them don't despair, because A) you're not alone (apparently you have a less than 10% chance of getting in via the ballot these days, such is the demand for places), and B) we've curated a list of brilliant London Marathon Alternatives for you. We've filtered our marathon database for big-city marathons from next spring onwards - so that you still get plenty of atmosphere, you can train in the cooler months (ok, the cold months), and you don't have really hit the hard training until after the Christmas holidays. You can find our suggestions below.
Alternatively you can check out the full Find A Race list of Spring Marathons.
