Top Club and Good For Age Event Information

TOP CLUB

 

Top Club athletes who have ran a time which meets the below criteria receive complimentary entry.  All athletes must have run a time that meets either the Marathon or Half Marathon criteria since 1st January 2022.  You must be within the time criteria to be eligible for a Top Club entry, please do not contact us if you are not fully within the time limit as we will reject your entry.   Please note that Top Club places are only available to British athletes.  Top Club entries close three days before the event date, or as soon as the race is at its maximum capacity.

 

Start pen allocations are made based on predicted finish time, so a Top Club entry does not guarantee a place in the front start pen. 

 

For a Top Club entry, please select the 'Top Club' entry method during the entry process.  You will be asked for proof of achieving the below criteria, which you will be able to link to your entry. Your entry will be given a 'pending' status until one of the Event Team has checked and approved you for a Top Club entry, which usually happens within a week of you making the entry.  You will be notified by email when your entry has been approved.
