Do you want a place in the London Marathon?

Man running race in Macular Society tshirt

Have you always wanted to run the London Marathon but struggled to get a place?

Now could be your chance to do just that, while raising vital funds for people with macular disease.

The Macular Society has a coveted place in next year’s race and is calling for keen runners, or eager fundraisers, to apply.

A record number of people have already signed up to apply to run the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2018 with an incredible 386,050 people hoping to take part. However, the majority of applicants will be unsuccessful, as usually around 40,000 runners line up at the iconic start line.

Funds raised will help those in the UK living with macular disease regain their confidence and independence and take back control of their lives.

To apply for the place, please email kathy.k@macularsociety.org for an application form.

Completed entries must be returned by 9am on Monday, 20 November.  

The 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon takes place on Sunday 22 April 2018. Since the London Marathon was founded in 1981 more than £890 million has been raised for good causes.
