The ballot for entry for the London Marathon on 23 April 2017 has just opened and closes on Friday. Details here: Ballot Entry
It is the premier marathon in Britain and a real experience for everyone I know who has taken part.
The club is guaranteed a place each year but it order to be fair there is policy in place to allocate it. the following factors are considered:
> Have they been a member for more than 12 months
> Have they been not been awarded the club place in the previous 2 years
> Have they unsuccessfully tried to enter via the ballot and not eligible for a good for age place (entry for which opens later in the year https://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/en-gb/how-to-enter/good-age-entry/ )
So this is a heads up for anyone wanting to enter London
