The Virgin Money London Marathon public ballot

If you were one of the lucky ones to grab your hands on a London Maraton ballot place, congratulations. If you choose to run for us, you’ll get all the perks that our gold bond runners get just without the minimum sponsorship – of course, we’d love you to fundraise for us, but anything you raise will be a massive help and will allow us to continue to support those affected by a blood cancer diagnosis.

If you’d like to join our team as a ballot runner, all you need to do is register your place with us and we’ll make sure your London Marathon experience is the best it can be.

When a place does become available, we ask all of our charity place runners to pay a £50 registration fee and commit to raising £2,350 to help us support people affected by blood cancer.
