London Marathon - change in criteria

The club has three places in the London Marathon set aside for it.

Following some queries from members and discussion at the committee meeting, the club has decided to slightly amend the qualifying criteria:

• Members who have not received a free club place in the previous 3 years will get priority

• Must be eligible under the rules of the London marathon;

• Must be a paid member of KTH for the current and previous season;

• Must have raced in Kettering colours at least 3 times prior to the marathon (to be confirmed by the Fixture Secretary) held under UKA rules in the last 12 months;

• The number of years you have been a member of KTH determines the number of times your name goes into the hat.

As part of the 3 races mentioned above, the committee has stated an expectation that the runners will have competed in at least one of the following competitions: Northants Road Running League, East Midlands Grand Prix, Charity Cup, County Champs (either XC or Track), Midland Vets, North Midland XC league or the Midland Track & Field League.

The draw will be held in Dec 2014 once the number of places has been confirmed by the London Marathon - a poster will go up in the Clubhouse once these places are confirmed.
