Our 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity Team

We are no longer taking applications for charity places. If you’re interested in applying for the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon please email us at sports@childrenwithcancer.org.uk.

If you’re lucky enough to have a place through the ballot, we’d love to have you on our team.

We offer all our runners plenty of help with training and fundraising as well as exclusive invitations to our Pre-Meets. At our Pre-Meets you can meet the rest of our London Marathon team and get support from our personal trainers.

Your support helps us to be there for children when they need us most and move closer to a world where no child loses their life to cancer.

Apply to run with Children with Cancer UK

Thank you to our 2018 team
