I’ve made the online application for our club entry for the 2019 London Marathon (for only 1 place unfortunately). Below is the automated response (with subsequent timeline) I received. This has been concurrently posted to the club Facebook page.
An internal club ballot will draw the lucky runner (and one reserve) in mid-December, details TBC. If you were unsuccessful in gaining a general ballot entry for the London Marathon 2019, send me your rejection email/letter (if not already done so).
