Virgin Money London Marathon

Each year, we have a team of runners who take part in the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon in aid of Weldmar Hospicecare.
Weldmar is fortunate to have five guaranteed Gold Bond places in the Marathon each year. In addition, those who have gained a place through the general ballot can also be part of team Weldmar.
Our Gold Bond places are available by filling out our application form which can be found below. Those who apply to Weldmar must also have entered the general ballot to be considered for a place.
Each year, we have far more applications than we do places so submitting a form does not automatically give you a place. You will hear from the team in early October when we will inform you if your application has been successful or not. This is normally shortly after the ballot places have been announced.
All of our runners receive fundraising support and advice by one of the team as well as plenty of tips for your challenge. In addition, all runners will receive a free Weldmar running vest which will be personalised with your name and available to you for the race. We will also invite you to a pre-race meeting to meet the other runners in the team and to inform you of important information for the day. Weldmar also has a cheer station each year at miles 14 and 22 where your friends and family members are welcome to join us.
If you are interested in running for us in 2020, the event and submission form is now live here
