Club places at the 2022 TCS London Marathon

With 35,914 finishers, the 2021 TCS London Marathon was the largest in-person marathon held anywhere in the world last year and, when combined with the virtual event, the biggest marathon ever staged.  

While the atmosphere on the day was fantastic, a record number of marathon places were not used in 2021 and have been rolled over to 2022. This, together with the number of places allocated to 2022 from the 2020 event – cancelled due to the pandemic – means the allocation of entries for this year’s marathon has had to change to ensure the new maximum capacity of 50,000 finishers is not exceeded. 

This change will affect clubs in two ways, depending on what type of entries a club has/has had previously. 

1. Clubs that previously held places in the event are being allocated one guaranteed entry in 2022, if they are not rolling over any places from 2020 or 2021 

2. Clubs that already have a runner rolled over from a previous London Marathon will not be allocated any additional places for 2022 

We emailed all Club Secretaries from clubs in both categories on 22 February 2022 to explain their allocations. 

In 2023 we hope to return to the previous system for allocating club places, depending on the uptake of places in 2022. 

Further information on the club entry process is available in the FAQs below. 

British Athletics Club entry FAQs

  • Due to the number of entries deferred from the cancelled 2020 event, it is not possible to offer places to clubs that did not have entries in 2020 as explained above. Further information on places for the 2023 TCS London Marathon will be available nearer the time. 

  • The allocations of places for 2021 and 2022 are based on the assignment of entries by clubs in 2020. If the runner in question is no longer a member of your club, an additional place will not be allocated for 2021 or 2022.
  • We emailed club secretaries on 22 February 2022 to confirm their allocations for 2022. 
  • Please get in touch with our Customer Services team and let us know the details of your new club representative.
  • No, all runners who deferred their 2020 entry are being managed by London Marathon Events and there is no further action required by clubs.
