VLM 13th April 2014: Baggage entries open

Fancy a fun day out helping on the baggage lorries at the Virgin London Marathon next April? Apply now…

The draw for guaranteed places was held at the AGM on Friday, 22nd April 2013. Details are shown at the bottom of this article.

Now that the draw has taken place, we can ask for volunteers to work on the baggage lorries at the finish of the London Marathon.

Roger did say that he would not take names until after the draw, so whether or not you have already sent an email, please re-apply.

For those new to the club, we are allocated 3 lorries, where the job is to sort all the bags that are transported from the start, and then hand them to the runners as they make there way very gingerly from the finish line.

For this you get:
1) Free coach transport from Stevenage and return

2) Refreshments & water

3) An article of London Marathon kit.

4) A souvenir medal

5) A payment to FVS for each person supplied

6) Priority for a club guaranteed place in 2015

7) A great day out

This assumes that everything is the same as in 2013, we are awaiting written confirmation
