VIRGIN MONEY LONDON MARATHON 2019 – BALLOT ENTRY AND CLUB BALLOT

Morning all!

 

Following last weekend’s awesomeness it’s nearly time for the ballot for 2019 race to open – the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon will take please on Sunday 28th April.

The Public Ballot opens this Monday 30th April 2018 and closes at 5pm on Friday 4th May 2018 more information here:

https://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/en-gb/how-to-enter/ballot-entry/

If you are eligible to make a Good for age application you are still advised to make an entry in the public ballot this year as they have changed the qualification process this year – more information here:

https://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/en-gb/how-to-enter/good-age-entry/

We hope to have a number of club places available to us again for the 2019 race – details are yet to be confirmed in terms of exact numbers but as in previous years we will ballot our club places on our Mince pies night in December.

To qualify for the club ballot you must meet the following Criteria:

1: You must have been a fully paid up first claim member of Bracknell Forest Runners for a minimum of 12 months as of 1st December 2018

2: You must have entered the Public ballot for the 2019 race and be able to produce an original rejection letter or email NO EXCEPTIONS

 

As in previous years we will then split the ballot entries into two sections each of which then has additional qualifying criteria to the above

 

Section one will be for the places gifted to the club in return for our volunteer efforts for the 2018 race. 

To qualify for this section of the club ballot you must have been and officially accredited volunteer at either the elite drinks station at 40k or Finish line baggage trucks 10 and 11 for the 2018 race

Section two will be for the places gifted to the club by UK Athletics because we are a UKA accredited club

To qualify for this section of the ballot you need to have supported the club personally over the past 12 months of your membership – examples of this include:

• Marshalling or volunteering at our club events in 2018 – this includes Bracknell Half Marathon, The Forest 

        Five, Club Handicaps and our Cross Country Race

• Regular run leading for official club runs on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Sunday

• Committee members, Web Admin, Race results

For the avoidance of doubt, running in club kit in races does not qualify you for the London Marathon Ballot for club places.

Given the growth in our membership over the past couple of years alongside the changes to the process for the public ballot it is becoming increasingly more difficult for runners to get an entry to the London Marathon so with this in mind in order to try and give as many people as possible to run this iconic race the committee have decided that there will also be disqualifying criteria for the 2019 club places.

You will not be eligible for the club ballot for the 2019 race if:

• You ran the 2018 race in any capacity (this includes good for age, charity and club places plus ballot entries)

• You won a place in the club ballot in 2016, 2017 or 2018.

We hope that you all understand the reasoning behind introducing the disqualifying criteria for the 2019 club ballot - The London Marathon is the Holy Grail of races for runners all over the world and we want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to take part in the greatest race in the world.

If you have any questions regarding the club ballot please email secretary@bracknell-foret-runners.org.uk
