London Marathon Club Places

HAC has only 2 club places on offer to club members for the London Marathon on the 24th April 2016.

If you are a fully paid up club member and have been for at least 1 year, have a VLM rejection slip for next year’s race, not previously won a club place in the last 3 years and want to do the marathon please email me, Martin Bateman at mbateman@hillingdonac.co.uk by the end of Thursday 29th October 2015.

Places will be awarded again this year by ballot and the draw/s will be at the clubhouse on a date to be decided.  Once all applications are in I will decide, in my role as club competitions committee chairman, the exact ballot process. It will either be 1 straight draw or 2 draws with the first “seeded” draw for one of the places then all names going into the second ballot for the remaining place. Anyone applying will need to pay the entry costs themselves if drawn from the ballot. With only 2 places on offer it is difficult to please everyone with the system. These places are offered by VLM as a kind of reward to clubs so in turn the seeded applicants  will be those that have put a lot into aspects of  management and organisation of HAC.
