  1. Be fully paid up club members
  2. Have entered the public ballot for the 2019 London Marathon and received a rejection (please send evidence of this)
  3. Be willing to assist with marshalling or other duties at the Roding Valley Half Marathon (or enrol a friend/family member)

 It is likely that we will need a ballot to allocate the place, and this will be drawn in the clubhouse on Tuesday 27th November.

National CC Relays

We had 9 full teams and one incomplete young athlete team who travelled to Mansfield for this prestigious event. It was a mild day with the going underfoot firm, but a strong wind blew around the course.

Unfortunately for us it was a case of "if only" as, unlike the road relays a month earlier, there was no warning announcement of 5 minutes before each race. Our unlucky Under 17 men's team, victorious last year as Under 15s, were victims of this and were not on the starting line when the gun was fired. One or two other clubs were in the same boat.

Runner survey: Finding info on supplements

A pharmacy student at the University of Hertfordshire, Jarin Khalique, is looking for help with her dissertation, 'on how members of running clubs in London get information about health supplements'. 

There is a survey which will take no more than 5 minutes to complete.
