London Marathon - 28th April 2019

Join Team St Wilfrid’s

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet - runners have raised over £750 million for good causes since the race began in 1981. The course follows an iconic route taking in many of London's landmarks, from the Cutty Sark and the City to St James' Park and The Mall.

Charity Place

If you would like to join our team and become a 'local hero' then click on the button below and fill out the contact form, we will then send you an application pack. 

What we need you to do is...

Raise a minimum of £2,000.

We look at each entry individually and make our selections based on your connection to the Hospice and your fundraising plan.

If you have been successful in your application we will get back to you at the beginning of November. You will need to pay a registration fee of £75 to secure your place.

Own Place

If you are lucky enough to secure your own place through the ballot or if you have a Good for Age place (you should hear if you are successful or not in October), we would love you to join our team as an own place runner. Simply contact the fundraising team on 01243 755827 or email and let us know. We will support you in reaching your personal fundraising target.
