I fjol var det 15% enligt NY Times:
Last year, 105,184 people entered the drawing, a 7 percent jump from the year before – and the largest group ever. Of that, 15,640 were chosen.
That percentage has been dropping: from about 23 percent in 2016 to 17 percent in 2017 to just under 15 percent last year.
The percentage of runners chosen is based on how many guaranteed entries are already claimed, and the number of people who entered the drawing (in 2016, for example, when 23 percent of applicants got in, New York Road Runners, which runs the marathon, received 82,172 applications, according to a spokesman, far fewer than entered last year).
