How can I increase my chances of gaining a place?

It is a totally random ballot with no weighting. However, ballot applicants are asked if they would like to bequeath their entry fee to the London Marathon Charitable Trust if they are unsuccessful. All applicants who bequeath their entry fee and do not get a place are then entered into a random Lucky Bequest draw of another 2,000 places.
