London Marathon


The London Marathon

Sunday 21 April 2024

Entry through the online ballot usually opens straight after the preceding race. See how to enter for more details.  We do receive a small number of club places, which we allocate to those who were unsuccessful in the ballot and didn’t obtain a GFA (good for age) or Championship place,

London Marathon 2022 – we even had our own spiderman taking part!

We usually have a large number of club members taking part in the London Marathon with championship, good for age, ballot, charity and club places. To prepare, we suggest you take part in our long runs, either the Saturday morning long run or the Sunday Richmond Run. In addition, members often do a mid-week semi-long run as part of the Wed night social run. Shortly before the big day, we organise our Last Half of the London Marathon long run, so that you get used to the course, particularly those challenging last miles. If you want any help or advice, please get in touch with our coaches, and we will do our best to help.
