he experience of a lifetime

Next year, hundreds of runners will be taking part in the Virgin Money London Marathon to raise funds for St John Ambulance. Register now to take your place for the charity that picks you up, dusts you down and gets you over the finish line - while raising vital life saving funds.

Thanks to fundraisers like you we’re able to put our first aid trainers in schools, equip our volunteers and run our ambulances.

Donors, sponsors, marathon runners - every pound you give us helps save lives.

Apply for a charity or Golden Bond place in the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon

Apply today for a charity place in the marathon to run for St John Ambulance. All we ask in return for a place is £100 registration fee, and a pledge to raise £1,800 minimum sponsorship.

  • • a St John Ambulance running vest
  • • a monthly e-newsletter and 'weekly tips' emails
  • • publicity support and advice from the St John Ambulance PR team
