The results of the 2013 London Marathon Ballot will soon be announced. Weston Athletic Club will once again be securing our allocation of club places based upon the number of members who have taken out UKA individual registration. We will be drawing the lucky winners of these places out of the hat at our festive training night in December in the normal way.

The criteria for your entry into the draw is as follows:

1. You have been a member of Weston AC for over 1 year (therefore you have paid at least one club membership renewal).
2. You have entered the 2013 London Marathon ballot and have been unsuccessful.
3. You are registered with UKA individually (you have paid the additional £5 on your membership fee).

If you wish to be entered into the draw and meet all of the above criteria please email Malcolm Gammon, using the link below, attaching a copy of your London Marathon rejection email (if they send one) or give him a copy of the cover of your rejection magazine. Good luck!
