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 cub Moorfoot Runners get one guaranteed entry to the London Marathon each year. The cub 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 by Friday 8 December so if you would like to be considered for the Moorfoot entry please email me firstname.lastname@example.org by end of Friday 1 December to allow time for entrant to be selected.
