Virgin Money London Marathon 2018

Join 38,000 runners in one of the world's most iconic marathons and help transform the experiences of children in hospital, so they can be a child first and a patient second.

The public ballot for the Virgin Money London Marathon closed in May. If you missed the deadline, the best chance of securing a place is through a guaranteed place with a charity.

We are delighted to have a Silver Bond charity place available to one lucky runner and invite you to apply. Please get in touch for our application form by emailing or calling 0131 668 4949. 

Please note that if successful you will agree to the following T&Cs:

§  There is a non-refundable registration fee of £75

§  The minimum sponsorship is £1,800 (excluding gift aid) 

§  You must be over the age of 18 on race day

§  Tell us as straight away if you are successful in the public ballot so we can offer our charity place to another runner


If you have your own place you can still run for ECHC. Just get in touch and we can send you a running vest, online page and fundraising pack.

The deadline for Silver Bond place applicants is 22 September. We will be in touch sometime from mid-October (once the public ballot has been announced) to let you know if you have been successful. Best of luck!
