Virgin Money London Marathon
Applications for London Marathon 2020 are now open!
The Virgin Money London Marathon needs no introduction. As the most iconic marathon in the world, it attracts runners of all abilities who love the course around London’s most famous streets, as well as the incredible atmosphere
The London Marathon is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Each charity runner is expected to raise £2,200 for the charity and run 26.2 miles, which is no easy task! This is months of fundraising, organising events, bag packs, raffles and bake sales. Months of running in the dark, rain, snow and mud. Months of blisters, black toe nails and niggling injuries.
Everyone who runs this iconic race is a super hero to us!
