Virgin London Marathon 2021 ARR Club Places (posted 10th April)

Hi all. We would normally expect to get 3 club places from VLM for the 2021 event. As last year's VLM was cancelled and many thousands of athletes deferred their places to 2021 or 2022, this year club places are reduced by the number of deferrals by our VLM place winners last year.

Taking last year's deferrals into account, we have 2 club places available for 2021 which will be awarded by ballot as usual (subject to confirmation by VLM expected end April).

The criteria for eligibility to take part in the club ballot are as follows:

  1. Must have paid 2 years subscriptions

  2. Must be able to produce evidence of being unsuccessful in the public 2021 VLM ballot

  3. Must not have been awarded club VLM places in the 2019 and 2020 club ballots.


Of the 2 places available, the first is reserved for members who have never participated in the London Marathon previously, whether as a club member or not. Once that has been drawn, the names of all other qualifying members are added to the draw for the 2nd place. We will also draw 5 "reserve names" in case either of the ballot winners are subsequently unable to take part.

The members who are successful in the ballot will need to pay for their places by a date to be advised to avoid their place being awarded to the next name on the reserve list.

If you would like to be included in the ballot for a club VLM place and you meet the above criteria, please forward evidence of your unsuccessful 2021 public ballot application to me at or by private message on Facebook by Friday April 30th.

Please do not post your evidence on this thread as it may get missed and you may not get on the ballot. When submitting your evidence, please indicate if you have ever taken part in the London Marathon before.

Thanks and good luck.

Steve Berry
