If you have been unsuccessful in obtaining a place in the London Marathon for 2018 it may interest you to know that we have four places up for grabs.
Applications for club places are open to all members regardless of ability, age and gender. However, we do restrict the ballot for the London Marathon to members (first claim) who have applied for a place and been rejected in the main ballot. We anticipate getting more applications than places and in determining how our places are allocated we take into account two key factors over the past year:
1. How many times you have competed for the club
2. Your history of volunteering for the club
Consideration is also given to length of membership and if whether you have competed in the LM in the past few years. Members who have been awarded a club place in the past three years are unlikely to be awarded a place for 2018.
Applications will be considered mid-November and the closing date for submitting a completed application is 5th November 2017
If you are awarded a club place you are expected to pay the entry fee and run wearing a club vest.
It may also interest you to know that the club is allocated places for the Brighton Marathon so if you apply for a London Marathon place but are not successful, there is a good chance you will be awarded a place in Brighton.
