Every year, as an England Athletics-affiliated club, Royton Road Runners is granted a small number of guaranteed places in the following year's London Marathon. These places are allocated by a draw which takes place at the club's annual Presentation Night in December. This draw is open to all club members who meet the following criteria:    

  • have entered & been rejected for a place in the main London Marathon ballot for the next race
  • able to provide proof of rejection (i.e. rejection e-mail or name/address slip along with rejection letter)  
  • a current 'first claim' member of RRR
  • an RRR member at the time of entering the London Marathon ballot
  • not qualified for a 'Good For Age' place in the next race
  • not selected for one of the club places in the current year's London Marathon

If you have any questions about your eligibility for the draw, please get in touch.
