London Marathon 2021
The London Marathon organisers have given us 2 club places for the 2021 event! If you want to be in with a shot of getting a place, you will need to register your interest with Jen Spencer* by Monday 21st June. In order to be eligible, you must:
Have been a member of the Whippets when you entered the London Marathon ballot
Be a fully paid up member of the Whippets for 2021/2022
Provide Jen with written confirmation of your 2021 rejection e.g. letter or email
*Please hand to Jen on a club night in an envelope (with your name clearly marked!)
What a year it’s been! This time of year, the club would normally be asking you to renew your membership for the Whippets, but as it’s been such a strange year with very little organised running happening, the committee have decided to ask you to only pay the England Athletics fee of £15, not the normal £26. This is as a thank you for your continued support over the past year, and for keeping the Whippets the great running club that it is through all this, we’d be nothing without you all! We want to keep the EA subs paid so that when organised club races happen again later in the year, we’ll all be ready to go and affiliated as a club. EA have kept their subs the same this year for the second year, and not their normal year on year increase.
We hope that very shortly we will be able to organise club nights again, subject to Boris of course. Keep an eye on here and the Facebook page for more information. As soon as it’s possible, the information will be shared about the next steps.
Renewals are due on the 1st April, but you can pay as soon as you like. Our bank details remain the same, and if you could let Dean or Jen know if you have paid.

Once again thanks for your continuing support and hopefully see you all soon.

In due course we may open up to even younger age groups but we do not yet have the facilities to make that possible.
