Unwrap a VIP marathon upgrade this Christmas

Win a chance to run the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon as a VIP

A happy Virgin Money London Marathon runner crossing the finish line

Are you fundraising for the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon with us? We’re giving all our fundraisers the chance to win a VIP upgrade this Christmas.

Join the buzz the night before with other runners at the Tower Hotel and watch the sunset over Tower Bridge – the perfect spot for your friends to cheer you on. Grab a bite to eat bright and early race day morning, where you can rub shoulders with elite runners. Then hop on one of our classic style double deckers to the Green Start, the start line with shorter queues and posh toilets. Swap stories and warm up with other charity runners like you – including rhinos, fairies and superheroes. Plus to top it off, when you’ve finally made it those last 100 metres on the Mall, you can cross the finish line with two of your friends and family cheering your name from our Grandstand.

Fancy your chances? All you need to do is create a Virgin Money Giving page, fundraising for the official 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon event (if you don’t have a page already), and receive £100 in donations on your page within the month of December.

We’ll be drawing the lucky winner in January, so keep an eye out on your emails and our social media.

Terms and conditions apply.

Good luck!
