UNLUCKY

Didn’t get into the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon Ballot?

We get it, missing the ballot is annoying but if we just pause for a moment and think about it, is it really that bad? Just because you didn’t make the cut for the London marathon ballot this time, it doesn’t mean you should take to your bed and start eating vats of ice cream just yet. Luckily for you there are literally thousands of other marathons going on every year and with a greater stroke of luck Let’s Do This will help you find them — oh and if 26.2 miles now feels like a long way we can also show you the best 5ks.
