2019 Virgin Money London Marathon

2019 Virgin Money London Marathon
The jewel in the crown of the world's running calendar!

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the greatest marathon on earth! Since 1981, it’s become an iconic, world-famous event and — at 26.2 miles through the heart of London — it’s the challenge of a lifetime. An experience you’ll never forget and a story you’ll be able to tell your grandchildren!

Team up with Brain Tumour Research and turn your dream into reality. Take part in one of the world’s largest annual fundraising events and help us fund the fight against brain tumours.

We have a limited number of charity places available for the 2019 marathon and there’s a registration fee and a minimum sponsorship pledge for these. If you fancy pumping the adrenaline and joining our team, please register below to receive an application and our terms & conditions.

If you’re successful in getting a place, we’d love for you to run on behalf of Brain Tumour Research. Please let us know and join our Fighting Force against brain tumours. We offer all our runners the same fantastic fundraising support to get you off to a flying start and over the famous London Marathon finish line:

  • One of our branded running vests and t-shirts — brilliant for helping you stand out in the crowd
  • Great tips and help in setting up your online fundraising page — to maximise your efforts and smash your target!
  • Facebook group — for sharing updates, training tips and fundraising advice
  • Eye-catching fundraising materials — to help you raise your profile and reach your sponsorship goals
  • Cheer point support — our staff and volunteers welcome you and your supporters, join in the atmosphere of the day and cheer on our team
  • Entry to our post-marathon party — with well-deserved food and refreshments to celebrate your amazing achievement

If you need any help or would like to volunteer at the marathon, we’d love to hear from you. Sarah, our Events Fundraising Manager, looks after our sporty supporters every step and every mile of the way. She’s happy to help with expert fundraising advice and materials so that you can smash your target and make your event a brilliant achievement.
