It’s that time of the year again where many of you will find out whether or not you were successful at the London Marathon Ballot.
As usual we will be holding a club ballot for those who didn’t get in. We are expecting 1 place.
To enter our draw please email your ‘unsuccessful’ email or a photo of the magazine with your adress attached to me at @.
I will notify of closing date and draw date when we start to see notifications coming through.
Full club rules:
London Marathon Entries
V) The club, as being part of the UK Athletics Association, shall receive no less than 1(one) Guaranteed Entry for the London Marathon each year.
VI) The decision on who receives any allocated places will be made by a random draw organised by a nominated member of the Committee (the “Draw Secretary”) and subject to the criteria as described below.
VII) The draw is open to all fully paid First Claim members only.
VIII) A draw entrant MUST have been a club member since July 1st in the year preceding the race for which the draw is being held (i.e. for the 2020 race, membership must date back to July 2019).
IX) Draw entrants must attempt to enter the London Marathon open ballot. If the ballot closes due to reaching its limit before a member has been able to enter, that member will still be eligible for the club ballot by e-mailing the Chairperson within one week of the open ballot closing.
X) Draw entrants must supply to the Draw Secretary before the draw takes place, proof that they entered the general ballot for a London Marathon place.
XI) Failure to adhere to any of conditions in VII) to X) above, will render the entrant ineligible for the draw.
XII) In order to maintain a degree of fairness, a member who wins that place in the Marathon in any one year, shall become ineligible for the draw for the subsequent two years.
XIII) Should a member, through illness and/or injury, be unable to take up his place as a draw winner, then he/she shall retain that place for the following year and enter accordingly by London Marathon rules and regulations.
XIV) This guaranteed place remains continuously under the rules and regulations of the London Marathon and at no time is transferable, except in XV) below.
XV) Should the draw winner feel that he/she will be unable to compete, for whatever reason, there is the option to transfer that place to another eligible club member (declared as Reserve at the time of draw). This option is restricted by date limitations as declared by the London Marathon.
XVI) Any member winning a club place under the above system will be required to wear a UKnetrunner club vest.
