About the event

With over 36,000 runners taking to the streets of the capital, and over one million spectators along the marathon route, the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon is the most exciting running event in the calendar year, and one not to be missed! This is one of the largest events in the #TeamSense calendar and so we like to make a huge fuss of our runners, with several cheering points along the route and a post-race reception fit for a VIP!

Entering the Ballot

The general entry ballot for the Virgin Money London Marathon opens from Monday 2 May until 5pm on Friday 6 May. If you would like to try and get your own place through the ballot, you can do so by visiting the official event website. You will then find out in October whether or not you have been successful.

By securing your charity place with #TeamSense now, you will not have to wait for the ballot results and you can kick-start your preparations straight away to make sure you’re ready for April 2017!
