Virgin Money Giving offers London marathon runners ‘Miles More’ as part of new fundraising campaign

Virgin Money Giving, the UK’s largest not-for-profit fundraising platform is offering runners with a place in the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon the opportunity to win a place for a friend in its ‘Miles More’ fundraising campaign.

To qualify, runners need to set up their fundraising page on virginmoneygiving.com and raise £100 by 30 November 2018 to qualify automatically for entry into the competition.

In addition, fundraisers using Virgin Money Giving will get the opportunity to win exclusive experiences on the day of the race, such as staying with the elite runners at the London Marathon HQ, starting the race as a VIP, or win exclusive seats for friends and family near the finishing line.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest single-day fundraising event in the world and Virgin Money Giving is linking up with a team of experts to assist runners with their fundraising experience in 2019. The event raised a record £63.7 million in 2018 alone bringing the total raised for charity since Virgin Money became title sponsor in 2010 to more than £500 million.

Jo Barnett, Executive Director at Virgin Money Giving said: "The announcement of ballot places for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon has kick-started fundraising plans for those lucky enough to secure a place and we are delighted to be able to help fundraisers make more of their marathon fundraising through our ‘Miles More’ campaign. Training for a marathon can be tough. Going it alone is even harder. So we’re giving all of our fundraisers a chance to win a place for their running buddy and maximise the fundraising opportunity which will hopefully help smash the amount raised through the record breaking 2018 event."

Anyone registering with the site to fundraise for the London Marathon will also receive a free pass to access Virgin Money Lounges around the UK.
