The Virgin Money London Marathon public ballot

The public ballot for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon has now closed, if you chose us as one of your nominated charities, thank you! By choosing 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.

Visit the London Marathon website to find out more.

You’ll then find out if you are one of the lucky ones to get a place later in the year. Good luck!

Our guaranteed charity places

By grabbing one of our Gold Bond charity places, you’ll be helping us to support all those who have been affected by a blood cancer diagnosis. We ask all of our charity place runners to pay a £50 registration fee (plus transaction fee) and commit to raising the fundraising goal of £2,350.

Why should you join Team Leukaemia Care?

Well, why not? By being part of Team LC you’ll get the special treatment you deserve. That’s the least we could do to say thanks for helping us to support people affected by blood cancer.

We’re talking:

  • a team running vest so we can spot you in the crowd
  • training tips and advice from our events team
  • regular phone calls and emails to help you through your training and fundraising
  • a friendly Facebook group where you can meet and share tips and advice from fellow teammates
  • a ‘Meet the Team’ day where you can meet the LC team and your fellow LM runners as well as learn about planning your running week, nutrition, injury and much more.
  • the chance to meet us at the London Marathon Expo stand where you can get excited for the big event
  • some of the loudest noise makers on the course
  • a rest area in the beautiful grounds of St James’ Park, a perfect place to meet your friends and family as well as stock up on some post-race goodies.

Double your chances

If you’re certain that you want to take on the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, then why not double your chances of running! If you’ve entered the London Marathon ballot, why not sign-up for one of our guaranteed charity places too. That way, when the ballot is announced you know that whatever the outcome you’ll be running.

If you’re successful in the ballot all you need to do is let us know and we’ll sort out the rest, you can still run for us you just won’t have the added pressure of the fundraising goal.

If you’re unsuccessful, don’t worry, you’ll still have your official place with us, so all you need to do is smash that training and fundraising goal and you’re on your way to being a marathon superstar!
