Lucky recipients of Serpentine London Marathon club places 2016

Many thanks to everyone who applied for a club place at the 2016 London Marathon

Every year, the London Marathon allocates guaranteed places for members of Serpentine RC. Where possible, we choose to pass these on to members who have played an active part in making this such a great club. This year we had four places available.

This year we had a large number of applications – more than the four places we had available with the full number of points. Many thanks to all those who applied.

On the basis of the points allocation system set out on the website, we drew names out of a hat at the Serpentine Christmas party for the four available places. The successful applicants are as follows:

  • Barbie Chan
  • Nick Fairclough
  • Nicola Kerr
  • Pete MacKintosh

Good luck to all and may the training commence!

For those whose names were not pulled out of the hat on Saturday, the club will have the chance to apply for five club places at the 2016 Brighton marathon. Please let me know if you woud like one of these places. For others who were unsuccessful this time, we would encourage you to participate actively in volunteering opportunities and league and club championship races in the forthcoming year so that you can stand a good chance of succeeding next time.
