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 London Marathon coach
  • regular phone calls and emails to help you through your training and fundraising
  • a friendly closed Facebook group where you can meet and share tips and advice from fellow teammates, as well as ask your personal coach questions about training, injuries and nutrition.
  • 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 Running Show 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.

The Virgin Money London Marathon public ballot

The public ballot for the London Marathon will open in April 2019 and results are announced in October 2019. If you’re thinking of applying, why not choose Leukaemia Care as one of the charities that you would support if you got a place. By supporting us you’ll be supporting to all those who have been affected by a blood cancer diagnosis.

Double your chances

If 2020 is your year and you’re 100% sure you want to take on the 2020 London Marathon, why not secure one of our Gold Bond charity places by paying the £50 registration fee and committing to raising £2,450 and then enter the public ballot in April. That way whatever the results, you know that you’ll be running in April 2020.

If you’re lucky enough to get a ballot place, 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.
