Virgin London Marathon Club Ballot

All being well, the club is entitled to a number of "Club Places" in the London Marathon. The number of places we get is determined by the number of members we have. This year we believe we are entitled to 2 places.

In the interest of fairness, we allocate places by way of a ballot that takes place at the club's annual birthday bash.


  1. You must have applied for a place in the Virgin Marathon Ballot and been rejected.
  2. You must have been a first claim member of the club when you applied for a place in the Virgin Marathon Ballot
  3. You must be a first claim member at the time of the ballot
  4. You will need to have paid your subs for 2020 before the ballot
  5. You must not have had a place in the London Marathon for 2018 or 2019

Places in the ballot

  1. Everyone who enters the ballot gets one ticket with their name on in the ballot
  2. You get an extra ticket for being present on the night
  3. One extra ticket for each year you have been unsuccessful in the club ballot. If previously you have won a ballot place then unsuccessful years count from then
