This might be a good time to look forward to next year's London Marathon!  Every year the club is given one (or maybe two) places.  These club places are allocated through a ballot process, normally held at the end of November's Galaxy Run.   The committee recently voted on the criteria required for entry into this ballot in order to make the system fairer to all members.  The following criteria were decided: 

The runner must be a first claim DRR; 

The runner must have been rejected by the original ballot;

The runner must have been a paid up member at the time of the official London ballot opening;

The runner must be an active DRR member (this was proposed as running 4 SA races in the previous year or being a volunteer at 4 races. The final decision will rest with the committee.)

The runner must not have had a club ballot place within the last 5 years

A  stand-by runner will also be chosen in case the winner is unable to run.
