Registration is now CLOSED for the Virgin London Marathon 2020. To register your interest in running the Virgin London Marathon in 2021, please contact Events at events@sfh.org.uk.
We recommend that you also apply for a Public Ballot place with Virgin Money London Marathon. 
If you are running the London Marathon 2020 for us, helping to raise vital funds to help us continue providing specialist care and support to people affected by life-limiting illnesses, you will receive all the same benefits as our Gold Bond runners! Just contact Events at events@sfh.org.uk and we'll get you involved with all things #TEAMSFH20 related!

Registration fee and sponsorship
If you are successful with your application, there is a registration fee of £75 which is due before we can confirm your place. This is a non-refundable registration fee and does not form part of your sponsorship.
Our Gold Bond runners are required to raise a minimum of £2,020 sponsorship. This is something we will support you with along the way, providing you with inspirational ideas and plenty of help with your fundraising so you don't only hit, but smash, your target. 
Own place runners receive all the same support from our dedicated Events Team as those with the charity places, but there are no sponsorship targets to meet. We are always grateful for your support and for any funds you can raise for Saint Francis Hospice.
