London Marathon Places

Every year the club is allocated a certain amount of London Marathon entries by England Athletics. The number of places we receive is based upon the number of members we have who are registered, first claim for EETC, with England Athletics. 

Two absolute requirements is that you have affiliated to England Athletics and have named East Essex Tri and your primary running club. After that we operate a points based system to reward longer serving members and those who've been unsuccessful in the ballot in recent years; see the following example:-
