The Virgin London Marathon 2021 – pre ballot

The Virgin London Marathon 2021 – pre ballot

Sunday 3rd October 2021, London

After a difficult year and after much delay, join us in October 2021 for the lifetime event of running the Virgin Money London Marathon on behalf of Tenovus Cancer Care. By running for us, you’ll be helping us to support cancer patients and their loved ones in Wales, and across the UK.

Charity Places

Even though many of our runners for the cancelled 2020 event are stepping up for next year’s race we have spare places available for those who want to show their commitment to beating cancer.

Our charity places are limited. Each year we receive many more applications than places available, owing to the huge interest in the Virgin Money London Marathon. We ask in return that you pledge to raise *at least* £2,000 in sponsorship for our charity. Many of our existing runners have raised their own goal to £3,000 so we would ask you to think of that target to beat.

We are taking applications for the 2020 London Marathon now, however please note that we are unable to officially allocate places until after the ballot lands in January 2020.

Places are awarded based on the strength of applications, so we ask applicants to consider and explain in detail the motivation to run for Tenovus Cancer Care and plans to reach the target.

We do have a dedicated team here at Tenovus Cancer Care that help you smash this target and we will provide you with a whole host of fundraising ideas and collateral to help you!

Virtual Marathon

If you can’t make the marathon in person, don’t worry, there will also be a Virtual London Marathon held on the same day! Click here to find out more.

However you choose to run, we greatly appreciate your amazing fundraising efforts. Your strides and passion enable us to help all those affected by cancer in across the country.
