Virgin Money London Marathon

It doesn't get bigger, better or tougher than the Virgin Money London Marathon. It is the world's largest fundraising event and the ultimate in sporting challenges. We would love you as part of our team!

To register your interest in securing a place for next year's Virgin Money London Marathon, please contact our Events Team on 01708 771427 or send them an email.

We have a number of our own Gold Bond spaces and we will ask you to fill in an application form explaining why you would like to run with us in 2018.  

We ask that our applicants enter the London Marathon's official ballot, which is now closed. 

If you are successful in the ballot you can still join #TeamSFH and have all the same benefits as our Gold Bond runners - but with no fundraising target. 

If you are looking to get your own place and fundraise for us, we would love to hear from you and get you involved with all things #TeamSFH related!


What you'll get as a member of #TeamSFH.

We will be with you every step of the way. All runners will receive: 

  • An orange SFH running vest
  • Access to our marathon evenings
  • A regular e-newsletter 
  • Access to our private Facebook group where you can swap training tips, fundraising advice and anything else marathon related with fellow team members. 
  • Support on the day at mile 23 from our epic cheering squad. 
  • Lots of dedicated support from our events team.

Marathon evenings

These are organised to support our runners, giving you an opportunity to meet past marathon runners, professional runners and the Super Gene team who will offer you all the training and nutrition advice you need to master the London Marathon.

Our Gold Bond runners are required to raise a minimum of £2,018 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.
