Little bit of shopping sweetie?
If you are in the mood for some extra cardio, you can shop till you drop. You can pick up fitness and running attire, gadgets to support and enhance your ability, food, medal displays and much more. If your feet get weary or you want to let the shoppers get on with it there’s a café area and seats at the Centre Stage.
Run around the world
If you fancy taking on another challenge, there is a plethora of stalls to showcase various marathons and runs across the globe alongside opportunities for running and fitness challenges in the UK.
As the Virgin Money London Marathon is the biggest annual single-day fundraising event in the world, the Running Show wouldn’t be complete without a massive representation from some of the amazing charities involved in the event. Their stalls and representatives are amazing so make sure you stop by and say hello.
As we say, we can’t cover everything the Running Show has to offer, so make sure you give yourself plenty time to take part and take it all in.
We hope to see you at the Running Show and from everyone at Virgin Money Giving, you are amazing and #ThanksaBillion for raising even more for charity. You’ve got this!
