Guaranteed gold bond charity places

All of our Gold Bond charity places for this event are now taken and we are no longer accepting applications for 2019. The good news is from the 29th April 2019 applications open for the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon so please do pop back at the end of April to apply for your chance to part of something amazing!

We are however still welcoming those who have secured their place through the public ballot for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon to join Team Blue Cross. Please see below for further details.

Seeking own place runners

If you secure your own public place in this event through the ballot we would be delighted to welcome you onto the Blue Cross team.  All we ask is for you to gain as much sponsorship as you can for the animals that we care for.
