Virgin London Marathon Club Places Ballot - November 2019

Following the success of this year's London Marathon the Club is proposing to put in place a policy relating to how the ballot for Club places that we receive from UKA is administered.

Historically, each year UKA provides one or two entries into the London Marathon to affiliated clubs including ours.

The number of places provided depends on the number of paid-up UKA affiliated members in the Club.

Last year Kirsty Woodwood-Owen was drawn from the hat for the one place we had and she successfully completed the Marathon last weekend.

Training opportunities through Stroud and District Athletics Club

Our junior waiting list is growing and we would love to offer more opportunities for local children.

But in order to achieve this we need more coaches/assistant coaches for track and field events. The club will cover the cost of any training required in exchange for at least one hour of your week (term time) helping the Junior section.  

Great for your CV / great for the club / great for your self esteem. You do not need to have had any experience of the discipline you coach as full training will be provided.
