London Marathon 2018: Sam will start for Bridport Runners

Sam Rose after Station Kitchen Run (17-04-2016)The Club place for next year’s London Marathon goes to … Sam Rose! A number of Bridport Runners had come forward for the London place, so Sam’s name was pulled out of a hat. Congratulations, Sam!

As a UK Athletics affiliated Club, Bridport Runners get a free place for Britain’s most prestigious marathon every year. To apply for that place, the applicant must have been a paying Club member for at least a year, beginning from 1 October 2017 (for the 2019 place) and must have entered the London Marathon ballot but did not receive a place through the ballot. Also, priority is given to those runners who have not had a place before.
