London Marathon

It appears that London Marathon rejection letters are coming through very early this year so I thought it best to put out the instructions of what to do and who qualifies to entry into the club draw for places. We haven't yet received our allocation of places but if the pattern runs the same as last year we should receive 3 places for the draw.
To qualify to enter for the draw:
1 You must have been a member when you entered the draw, ie entered as a Shropshire Shuffler and paid your subs!
2 You must not have had a place from the draw in the previous year. This is to give other members a chance at getting a place who haven't had a place before in the draw.
I believe now you just receive a rejection magazine rather than a letter - so please send me the cover slip with your name and address on that came with the magazine and also write on the slip whether or not you have done the London Marathon before. We ask this as we do two draws, the 1st is for people who have never done London before and the 2nd for all remaining names.
You can either send me a picture of your rejection slip to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or post it to 7 The Maltings, Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury, SY3 0QE
The draw will take place at the annual awards and dinner night at the Lord Hill Hotel on 28th November 2014. Good Luck!
