Ranelagh have been given 2 club entries to next year’s London Marathon on 23rd April. We had hoped for a larger allocation but, having not had any places to give out for the last couple of years, we are grateful nonetheless.
Any member who wishes to apply for one of the two places will need to meet one of the following 2 criteria:
1. Has taken part in at least 3 Ranelagh races this year, either Surrey League, mob matches, club handicaps or a combination, OR
2. Has volunteered at a minimum of 3 Ranelagh races this year (either cross country or road events)
To ensure that we give people who have not recently had a chance to run the London Marathon, applicants also need to meet both of the following criteria:
A. Has not taken part in the London Marathon in the last 5 years, AND
B. Has not obtained a championship/Good For Age qualifying time in the last 5 years.
One place will be awarded by way of a ballot. The second place will be awarded by the Executive Committee as a “thank you” to a member who also meets the above criteria and who has made a special or significant contribution to the running of the club.
Should you wish to apply, please email Ranelaghpresident@gmail.com by 6pm on Sunday 18th December. Apologies for the short notice but we have not been given much time before the club has to register its entries.
