London City Athletics Club have two places to ballot off to our members for the London Marathon 2019.
Members will receive confirmation of the number of places in early November when you will be invited to apply to enter our club ballot. The number we are awarded is based on the number of First Claim members we have, as explained here. The draw will take place at the Christmas Party & Awards Night on Saturday 15th December.
The London City AC committee have agreed the following criteria for entering this year’s ballot:
- You must have entered, and been rejected for, the London Marathon 2019 public ballot and be able to evidence this with your rejection email or letter – KEEP YOUR REJECTION EMAILS AND LETTERS!
- You must be an EA Affiliated First Claim London City AC member.
- You must have raced or volunteered 3 times during 2018 for the club. Races only include all Met League, Southern Athletics League and Surrey Road League Races, plus the Helsinki and Lanzarote club trips. Volunteering does NOT include taking track registration (members receive a free track session per registration).
- You cannot enter the ballot if you have received a place from the club in the previous 5 years.
Members – Keep your rejection emails and letters. If you haven’t raced for the club this year we have three Cross Country events remaining in 2018 starting with Claybury on 13th October.
