London Marathon Club Ballot – Registration

As 2019 draws to a close, it’s time for another Christmas party and more importantly, another London marathon ballot!

For 4 members, there is still chance to reach the minimum of 8 qualifying events since 1st January 2019, with the Hogs Back Road Race this coming Sunday (8th Dec). The current tables can be found -> here <-

I would ideally like to know ahead of time those who wish to enter as I need to double check eligibility in terms of all aspects of the ballot rules which you can find -> here <- 

To enter the ballot please drop me an email captain [ at ] 26point2.co [ dot ] uk. Entries close at 9pm on Wednesday 18th December with the draw to take place at around 9:30pm during the Christmas Party in the club bar.

Good luck to everyone entering, we have 2 club places for the 2020 London marathon therefore you have far higher odds at being successful than with the public ballot.

 

London Marathon Club Ballot – November update

With little over a month to go until the club ballot for the 2020 London marathon, now is the time to update you on who has completed or close to completing enough qualifying events, click -> here <- for the updated tables.

42 members have qualified so far, with a further 5 members falling one race short of reaching the minimum 8 races required to meet the qualification criteria. Ballot rules found -> here <-

The next Grand Prix event being the Hogs Back Road Race (11.4k) on 8th December is the final opportunity to boost your tally between now and the ballot being held at the Christmas Party on Wednesday 18th December.

If you spot any discrepancies with the tables, please drop me an email captain [ at ] 26point2.co [ dot ] uk

London Marathon Ballot – August update

For those of you dreaming of a place in the 2020 London Marathon and are unfortunate enough to be rejected in the public ballot due to be drawn in October, one of the perks of being part of a running club is that we are entitled to 2 free places each year. The club ballot is held at Christmas party.

click -> here <- for the updated tables.

To be eligible for the ballot, you must be a continuous paid up member since 1st February 2019 and complete the minimum 8 qualifying races. For a  reminder of the ballot rules, please read the following link -> here <-

Plea for help with clock and gantry

The club regularly hires out the clock and gantry to support local races. This acts as a welcome revenue generated but relies on trustworthy volunteers to transport and assemble before the event and stick around to disassemble after the final finisher has completed their run. On Sunday 7th October, the club have once again agreed to hiring the clock and gantry for the Titsey Trail 10k race near Oxted, but our regular team of volunteers are unavailable. This is a fantastic, locally organised event, held on the Limpsfield Chart, a true cross-country course. In return, we are granted 2 free race entries and cover your fuel. If you are able to offer your help, please contact: captain [ at ] 26point2.co [ dot ] uk
