The Philadelphia Marathon has been selling out the past couple of years.  The Atlantic City Marathon is a nice alternative.  It is fast and flat, is a certified course so can be used as a Boston Qualifier.  It is also a lot smaller and easier to get to the starting line.  Their are casino hotels that offer nice packages to stay overnight and you can literally walk a couple of minutes to the starting line.  The other nice feature is running on the boardwalk for about 5 miles - which is a lot softer than pavement.  Two of my friends set PR's there in 2009.  You can signup here for the Atlantic City Marathon.
