The London Marathon is probably the premier mass participation running event in Britain and a real experience for anyone who has taken part.
As a British Athletics affiliated club Moorfoot Runners get one guaranteed entry to the London Marathon each year. The club has a policy for the fair allocation of the place as explained in a blog post in May http://moorfootrunners.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/london-marathon-2018-ballot-for-entry.html
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 were not eligible for a ‘good for age’ place when that entry was open.
Club secretaries must submit an application for the London Marathon place which opens on Mon 5th Nov so if you would like to be considered for the Moorfoot entry please email email@example.com before 5th Nov
