London marathon 2009 - 80,000 applicants in a day

I just happened to be browsing the London marathon website and this is what I found:
Due to an overwhelming response Phase 1 of the Flora London Marathon 2009 online entry ballot has now closed. The limit of 80,000 applicants was reached at 10pm on Monday 14 April.

Incredible. This is just a day after this year's race on April 13.
