If you have been rejected in the VMLM ballot and wish to try your luck in the club ballot, you need to keep hold of either your email (if rejected electronically), or your paper rejection slip (if you received a rejection magazine through the post).
Emails should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org and rejection slips should be handed in to Alan Mills on a club night.
Once Steph has received further information regarding the number of club places we have been granted, details will be released to members regarding when the club draw will take place. (As a rough guide, the club were granted three places for the draw last year.)
IMPORTANT: Please see below a list of the rules regarding our club ballot:
* In order to apply for a club place for London 2017 you must have been a paid-up member of the club since April 2015 and have received a rejection slip through the post/via email. This will give you one entry into the club ballot for a chance at gaining a position in the London 2017 marathon.
* You can gain a second entry into the club ballot if you marshaled at the Club’s Welly 5 race in July or ran one of the first 8 Northants Road Running League races for the club over the Summer months.
* A third and final entry can be had by running 5 or more of the NRRL races (or by marshalling at the Welly 5 and running 4 or more of the NRRL races). This has been done to encourage runners to run for their club in the league races.
The maximum ballot entries for a club position in London 2017 is three.
It is also a requirement that if you win a club place in the draw for London, you must represent the club by wearing your club vest during the race.
