Mention distance running and think marathon. Mention marathon and think London. Professional competitors, enthusiastic amateurs and worthy causes - it can only mean one thing!
The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the world’s greatest marathons. Starting in Greenwich and banked with supporters throughout, follow the iconic route taking in the breath-taking landmarks of London and finishing down the beautiful Mall.
The Virgin Money London Marathon now accepts 50,000 entries a year and is shown live on televison in over 200 countries around the world. Undoubtedly one of the biggest events in the sporting calendar for any runner and not one to be missed.
The London Marathon received over 250,000 ballot entries in 2017 and with over 39,000 runners on the day, the only way to guarantee yourself a place in the London Marathon is to obtain a charity place. In return for one of these 'guaranteed charity places', runners are guaranteed a place in the event and need to commit to raising an amount of sponsorship for their chosen charity.
