Club London Marathon Places


2021 Virgin London Marathon

Lancon AC are allocated one London Marathon place each year. This is offered to someone who has been rejected in the open ballot and has competed and supported the Club in the previous 12 months.

Following discussion and consultation with key AC members the 2021 London Marathon place has been given to Simon Banfield. The marathon is hopefully taking place on 3 October 2021. Simon was rejected in the ballot and has supported the Club in reces in 2019 and early-2020.

The 2022 place has already been taken. This was awarded to Will Nelson in 2019 earmarked for 2020 LM that was cancelled. Will opted to defer it to 2022.

So the next available LM place will be for the 2023 event. To qualify for this runners will need to apply for the ballot that will be held sometime in 2022.
