We are delighted with yet another lovely team of our Gold Bond Virgin London Marathon runners this year and are totally overwhelmed by the dedication and effort that goes into the build up to the big day. Not only do they have to do most of their demanding training through the wet, cold and dark winter months they also have to fund raise a minimum pledge for their place and this year they have come up with unique fundraising ideas which have included a couple of great Race Nights and a Gin Festival.
Some of our runners this year have already proudly smashed their 5k PB’s by taking part in Park Runs and have also signed up to a number of half marathons. One of our runners has also just signed up to the Manchester Marathon as a warm up! They have all been sharing their training runs and ideas and spurring each other on via an ectopic VLM18 Facebook group.
The Marathon takes place on Sunday 22nd April I’m sure that all our runners would be extremely grateful for any support you can offer as they continue to train, fund-raise and raise awareness. Below are links to all their fundraising pages where you can also read their stories:
