New York City Marathon Lottery

After yesterday’s long run I am enjoying a rest day today. I certainly picked a good day for a rest day this week as we have had rain showers on and off all day.

I am looking forward to tomorrow as the New York Road Runners will be announcing the winners of the lottery.

Since I read the odds of being accepted via the lottery are approximately 11% I do not really expect that I will be running in New York on November 6th. However, until the results are announced tomorrow the possibility is still there and I will be waiting the results with great anticipation.

If I don’t get in this year I will likely continue applying until I receive a guaranteed entry – if you do not get in three years in a row you receive a guaranteed entry the fourth year.

Did you entry the lottery for the New York Marathon? Have you run the New York Marathon before?

Stay tuned for an update tomorrow!

  1. Yep, entered NYCM, thinking I’d strike out three times giving me guaranteed entry. But got in on my second year (2009), but deferred by one year. Entered again, thinking it’ll take me three strikes 🙂

  2. I did not get in this year. I guess I will apply again next year.

    Now looking at other options for this fall. Philly might be an option.
