Were you inspired by the 2017 London Marathon? Why not take on this iconic challenge and turn your miles into smiles for Birmingham St Mary's Hospice? 

The 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon takes place on Sunday 22nd 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.

Run for your Hospice

We have a number of places available for committed runners ready to fly the flag for our Hospice. Anyone interested in applying needs to complete a Hospice London Marathon application form and return it to us by Friday 27th October 2017 in order to be in with a chance of getting one of our charity places.

These forms can be requested by emailing events@birminghamhospice.org.uk or call 0121 471 1191.

To confirm your place we ask you to pay a £100 registration fee and commit to raising £1,900 in sponsorship. 100% of this sponsorship money will go towards helping us to care for individuals and families 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.

So what are you waiting for – get your running shoes on?

You can request an information pack by calling Lucy Watkins on 0121 472 1191 or email events@birminghamhospice.org.uk
