The London Marathon

The 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon takes place on Sunday 28th April and is a long and fast 26.2 mile race through the streets of London, taking in iconic landmarks and attractions, before ending in the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

This is a fantastic, world class event with thousands of cheering supporters along the route and thousands of runners in fancy dress. Combined with world record attempts and elite athletes means that the atmosphere on race day is unrivalled.

The ballot is now closed, if you are interested in applying for one of our 2019 charity places please email [email protected] or call 0121 471 1191 in order to be added to our waiting list. 

If you applied for a ballot place and in October you find you have not been successful please do get in touch and then we can offer you one of our places. At this stage we ask for a £100 registration fee to secure your place on the Hospice team and we do ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £2000 sponsorship. 100% of this money will go to supporting individuals and families from Birmingham and Sandwell who are living with a terminal illness.

The Hospice fundraising team will be happy to help with advice and suggestions on fundraising and can provide training and nutrition support.
