The London Marathon

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

Anyone interested in applying for a 2019 place should email [email protected] or call 0121 471 1191 in order to be added to our waiting list.

For 2018 charity places require payment of a £100 registration fee and a commitment to raise £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?
