Lucky recipients of Serpentine London Marathon club places 2018

Many thanks to everyone who applied for a club place at the 2018 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 six applications with the full 22 points, hence a ballot took place at last night's Serpies Christmas party. The lucky members who got a club place are:

  • Andy Williams
  • Natalia Delfino
  • Jamie Giles
  • Tom Bartlett

Good luck to all and may the training commence!

For those who were unsuccessful this time, and anyone thinking about applying for a club place in 2019, the criteria for applications reward members who represent Serpentine at races and give up their time to volunteer for the club. We encourage you to participate actively in volunteering opportunities and league and club championship races in the coming year so that you can stand a good chance of succeeding next time.
