About Club Entry

Athletics clubs associated with British Athletics were able to apply for club entries into the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon. The number of entries given to each club is based on the number of first claim-registered members over the age of 18 who are registered with British Athletics.

Clubs with fewer than 10 first claim-registered members will be placed in a ballot. After the application deadline, 20 clubs will be drawn at random and allocated one place each.

Please note that we will only accept the number of first claim members registered for a club as at 5 November 2018.

The allocation of places to clubs will be as follows:

Number of first claim-registered members Number of entries
10-150 1
151-250 2
251-350 3
351+ 4
