London Marathon – Club Ballot Draw Rules.
To qualify for a place in the GRR club ballot the following rules are to be adhered to:
- The club membership year runs from 1st April – 31st March each year. The Annual Membership subscription period for GRR is formally notified as 1st – 30th
- You MUST have joined or renewed your Annual Membership subscriptions to Gosport Road Runners with affiliation to England Athletics (UKAA), and returned your membership renewal form no later than 30th April each year in order to be eligible for the opportunity to enter the club ballot draw for a VLM running club place.
- Members, who have previously been successful at gaining entry to run the VLM through the club ballot draw (held each December), will not be permitted to reapply for a club ballot place until a period no less than 5 years has been served. (There remains no restriction to entry to the club draw if you have had a VLM public ballot place over that period).
If you gained a club running entry to VLM during the club ballot draw in December 2012, (running the marathon in April 2013); further applications would not be accepted until December 2017 for the marathon held in 2018.
Allocation of Club Ballot places:
GRR is currently only allocated one VLM place, so everyone with a rejection slip that meets the criteria above will be entered into the draw. The allocation of the space will be as below.
