London Marathon club ballot places

With the London Marathon ballot announcements on the horizon, this post is to explain the Club’s London Marathon ballot draw for those who may not know about it or how it works.
The ballot enables those unsuccessful in the general VLM ballot to get one of the Club’s places.  
To qualify you need to have been a member of the club on April 1st 2013. Anyone who joined later than this will unfortunately not be eligible this year.  You also MUST have a VLM 2015 rejection slip in order to ender the ballot.  You cannot qualify for the extra entries into the ballot unless you satisfy this requirement. It is a condition of the ballot (along with club membership since April 2013)  that any entrant has a VLM 2015 rejection slip.
You can then obtain up to three entries into the Club’s ballot in the following ways:-
  1. Have a rejection slip from VLM 2015 (1 entry).
  2. Marshal the Welly 5 2014 OR have run for the club in one of the Northants Road Running League races in Summer 2014. (1 entry).
  3. Run 5 or more of the Northants Road Running League races for the club in Summer 2014 (1 entry).
In total you can obtain up to three entries into the WDAC ballot.
Keep your eyes peeled for the date on which the ballot will be drawn, to be announced nearer the time.
Any questions, please direct them to club captains.
