The Virgin London Marathon 2020

Sunday, 26th April 2020, London


Join us next April for the life time 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

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.

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 October 2019. 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!


Ballot entry

The Virgin Money London Marathon operate a ballot entry system, which is usually open for a short period of a few days in the May of the previous year. Then in October, people hear whether or not they have been successful.

If you are one of the lucky few to secure your own place, we would love for you to run for Tenovus Cancer Care. Unlike our charity place runners, we won’t ask you to make a fundraising pledge, but we will offer the same fundraising support.
