The Club is generally allocated a few places for each London Marathon, which are allocated amongst the membership by ballot in the November preceding the marathon.
To be eligible for a place in the ballot you must:
Only members who meet all of the criteria above will be included in the draw for the first half of the available places. However, members who satisfy points 1 to 3, but failed to meet the criteria in 4 will be included in the draw for the remaining places if they met those criteria in any of the previous four years and have maintained unbroken membership since that year.
Please note that after the allocated places have been awarded, names will continue to be drawn as reserves. So, assuming there are 4 places on offer, the fifth name out of the hat will receive a place if one of the initial winners has to withdraw for some reason.
Those members who are lucky enough to receive a place would be expected to run the marathon in a club top and to co-operate fully with the club’s press officer regarding marathon publicity.
If you would like to apply for a Club Marathon place, or have any queries regarding eligibility, please contact Sim.
