Club marathon places

We are likely to be given just 1 place in the London Marathon this year (to be confirmed by December 12th). 

Places will be prioritised in the following order: 

  1. Must be a fully paid up club member
  2. Those who applied and were rejected in the public ballot
  3. If we don’t get 3 applicants who qualify under 2, then will open up to other club members

If we have more than 1 applicant at stage 2, a ballot will be held in the clubhouse to allocate the place.

If we have only 1 applicant at stage 2, that person will get the place.

To submit your interest, please email Club Secretary David Hollingworth (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )

Charles Stockings: 24/10/1929 - 28/07/2017

We say a fond farewell to Charles Stockings, who passed away on 28th July in hospital in Harlow. At 87 he was one of the oldest members of Woodford Green Athletic Club having been, in his younger years, a good cross country and road runner who also took part in track events.

He was a Life Member and Past President, and served as General Secretary for six years. Apart from running, he took part in many club activities, including the events organised by "The Evergreens", the association of older members of the club.

Charles organised many of The Evergreens' activities, including visits to the Brick Lane Music Hall, games in his garden in High Roding, The "Two Charlies" games evenings (with Charlie Crump), musical entertainment evenings, comedy evenings, lectures, visits, outings and walks.
