Each year UKA provide to the club an entry to the London Marathon to give to one of our members. The Club Committee decided that the member will be chosen by random draw. However only members who meet the following criteria will be entered in the draw each year:
You have not won the draw in the previous 3 years.
You must be a member of the club for a minimum of one year.
You must have tried to the enter the London Marathon this year through the ballot system and been rejected.
Your intention must be to enter the marathon as a Langport Runner and be a paid club member when you take part in the marathon.
Since the rejection emails and letters have just been released (and there are a lot since this year there is only a 4.4% chance of getting in by ballot!) we are now collecting names to be entered in the draw for entry to the 2018 London Marathon.
So far we have the following names in the draw:
Melanie Munday, John Howard, Mike Norton, Selina Jervis, Nicky Chrascina, Sam Landrigan, Sue White, Brad Taylor, Ben Fogwill, Natasha Howells, Shaun Howells, Liz Martin, Grahame Turner, Mark Romans, Kyle Oliver
The draw took place at Wednesday club on the 1st November 2018, and the winnner was Selina Jervis !👏
