VLM 2015 Ballot

Postby Woolly » Tue Apr 22, 2014 9:15 am

Well the ballot opened today for the London 2015 marathon

and closed around 10am!!



I think it opened at midnight!



All who registered will have to wait for a magazine October time saying Congratulations or Commiserations!!!



Watch this space for club draw news as another opportunity to get a place in 2015



Unless you are already in deferred or good for age that is!

Or championship :-D



On a more serious note, next year's VLM I will be taking it a bit easier, as I need more basic speed before I can get a faster marathon, so won't be doing the same 4 month buildup and racing it. My next serious marathon will be at least 18 months. Consequently if anyone wants pacing round in a GFA time, or sub 3 hours, then let me know, as that will make me a bit more restrained!

Yes club ballot on the AGM night



The draw for club entries for the VLM 2015 will take place immediately

following the closure of the AGM, usually for 3 places plus 1 reserve.

For the draw to take place, a slight addition to the wording in LERC

club rules must take place and will be proposed earlier, during the

meeting.



To be considered for the draw, you must have applied to enter the VLM

via the ballot, been rejected, and have received a letter of

rejection. Names to Rob Fox ASAP.

That's not many, we need more names.
My name is not really Sheila, or Iris. It's just plain old Laura.
