Our 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity Team

If you would like to join our 2019 London Marathon charity team and help raise money for vital research to save the lives of children with cancer, please complete our application form. We offer plenty of help for fundraising and running to ensure our runners do the best you can on both fronts. There are some London Marathon charity places available with Children with Cancer UK, apply below to help fund vital research that would otherwise go unfunded.

If you were lucky enough to secure a place in the ballot, we would love to have you on our team. You’ll receive support with your training and fundraising as well as exclusive invitations to our Pre-Meets where you can meet the rest of our London Marathon team and get support from our personal trainers.

The support of those who take part in these events, and others who donate as a result, help us to be there for children when they need us most and move closer to our vision of a world where no child loses their life to cancer. Apply to run with Children with Cancer UK
