2021 Virgin Money London Marathon

25 April 2021

Join our team for next year's marathon!

It's time to build an amazing fundraising team for the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon! Due to a high demand for places, we operate an application system. Please complete our application form for a chance to take part and we will be in touch in October to let you know if you have been successful. 

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. However, we will do our best to offer everyone a place in an alternative event.

To confirm your place in our team, we ask that you pay a £100 registration fee (on offer of a place) and pledge to raise £2,000 (excluding Gift Aid).
