Virgin Money London Marathon
Joining over 30,000 participants you’ll run 26.2 miles passing some of London’s famous landmarks whilst thousands of spectators cheer you on.
In exchange for a charity place, we ask that marathon participants aim to raise a minimum of £1500. This allows us to cover the cost of your place and to ensure we have the funds to provide to our vital services.
**Please note our places for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon are now full. We will open the ballot for 2019 on Monday 23 April 2018.**
How will Children 1st support me?
Join Team Children 1st and we will provide you with a free Children 1st t-shirt for the event. We offer all participants any fundraising materials that they may need including sponsorship forms, collection tins, balloons and stickers. We will also be on-hand to provide advice about raising sponsorship and can offer guidance and support for any fundraising events or ideas that you have planned.
Secured your own place?
If you have been fortunate enough to secure your own place at the Virgin Money London Marathon through the event organisers then we would be delighted to have you join Team Children 1st. There is no minimum fundraising target if you have purchased your own place, just raise as much as you can.
