Virgin London Marathon 2014
Congratulations and thank you to all our 2013 runners!
What a fantastic event this year's London Marathon was - a great occasion, wonderful weather and it was brilliant to meet our runners and their supporters.

Apply to be part of the Virgin London Marathon 2014
Date: 13 April 2014
The Virgin London Marathon is always heavily oversubscribed. Each year we have a very small number of guaranteed charity places which our supporters can apply for.
What to do next?
We do pay for the guaranteed charity places that we get so we ask anyone who is interested in running for Heart Research UK to apply for the Virgin London Marathon ballot. If you’re lucky enough to get a place you can still be part of our team, we’ll support you every step of the way, there’s no minimum sponsorship and it means that every penny you raise will support our work.
Applying for the Virgin London Marathon Ballot
The ballot for places will open on Monday 29 April 2013. You will then be told in September if you have been successful or not.
Getting a Heart Research UK Place
You can apply for a Heart Research UK place here.
We ask our runners to pledge to raise a minimum of £1,750 (not including Gift Aid).
Our aim is to have all our places allocated by the end of October after the official Virgin London Marathon ballot has been announced.
Please be sure to complete the application with as much information as possible.
How we will support you
Signing up for the marathon is a big commitment – not just the training but reaching your fundraising target too. But we’ll help you along the way with:
- Plenty of fundraising ideas and tools – from posters and balloons, buckets to stickers please ask our fundraising team for what you need
- Some handy training and nutrition tips
- A HRUK t-shirt to wear on your training runs
- A running vest for those longer runs and to wear on the big day
- And we’ll be there on the day to meet you and congratulate you on your fantastic achievement
If you have any other questions contact Lynne on the fundraising team by emailing email@example.com or call 0113 2347474.
How your fundraising helps us.
Over 2.7 million people in the UK live with heart disease – many cases are potentially preventable. Treatments for heart disease continue to develop but mortality rates are still too high and that’s why we need help from supporters like you to continue our work in helping hearts across the country.
