Virgin Money London Marathon

We have secured places and are looking for people to join Team Children 1st to take part in the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 28 April 2019. Joining 40,000 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 enables us to cover the cost of your place and ensures we have the funds to provide to our vital services.

For the opportunity to soak up the amazing atmosphere and to take part in the world renowned London Marathon, please enter the ballot for 2019 by contacting our fundraising team at or call 0141 419 1158. The ballot will close on 30 September 2019.

How will Children 1st support me?

Join Team Children 1st and we will provide you with a free Children 1st running vest 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 then we would be delighted to have you join #TeamChildren1st. There is no minimum fundraising target if you have purchased your own place, just raise as much as you can.
