Virgin Money London Marathon

28 April 2019


Experience the world's greatest marathon in support of a better future for seriously ill children.

Needs no introduction. Be part of the biggest fundraising event in the world. Take on the iconic route and feel like a celebrity as you're cheered every step of the way.

Join our team

Unfortunately due to a high demand for our 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon places we have had to close our applications early to give us time to process these. If you would like to speak to us about this please call us on 020384 13164. 

To take part in the marathon we ask that you pay £100 registration fee and commit to raise £2,000 for GOSH. You won't have to pay this registration fee until we confirm that you have been successful in gaining a place.

Unfortunately we always have more applications for the Virgin Money London Marathon than we have places - so we can't guarantee that everyone who applies will be able to secure a marathon place, but we will do our best to offer everyone a place in an alternative event.
