London Marathon place

Each year, the Manchester YMCA Harriers are awarded one place for the London Marathon.

Applications for the Club's London Marathon place should be made to the Club Secretary before the end of November. The Committee will award the place to a member in early December.

As you might expect, demand for the place within the club is high. As such, the Committee award the place on the following basis:

  1. First preference is given to members who have:

    • Completed that year's Club summer championship; and
    • Applied for a London Marathon place in the public ballot and have been rejected.
  2. Second preference is given to members who have:

    • Completed that year's Club summer championship.
  3. Third preference is given to any other member.

Where the Committee receives multiple applications of equal standing, a name will be drawn from a hat.
