 Entry criteria for entering the  club draw for two  2023 London Marathon Places

1) Must have been a fully paid up first claim member of PR since 1st April 2022, and

2) Must have helped the club out at least twice during the 12mth period leading up to the ballot. This could include (but certainly not limited to): marshalling at any of the races we host; assisting with coaching / c25km/juniors; officiating; assisting in an admin basis (on either committee, race organisation, website, kit, awards, social media etc); leading Wednesday group runs. This is not an exhaustive list but simply ways you may help.

3) Must not have won our Club’s London Ballot within the last five years.

4) Must not be eligible for a Good for Age place, and must have entered the standard London Marathon ballot and be in receipt of a rejection from them. (or screenshot of rejection )

The London Marathon is an iconic race and places are increasingly hard to attain (with GFA times becoming more competitive and charities requiring upwards of £1,500 in sponsorship). These criteria have been selected therefore to maximise the opportunity for as many of our members as possible to make the race start line.
