Join our team for the Virgin Money London Marathon 2016. Run with us and you'll get supported all the way. Let's beat cancer sooner.

If you do one event this year, make it the Virgin Money London Marathon. With thousands of people lining the roads to scream your name and our unique race day hospitality, it really is an event like no other and an experience that will live with you forever.

With our largest ever team and our highest ever fundraising target last year, we’re running to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. The official ballot will be open 4th May and will stay open until 5pm on Friday 8th May. Don't forget to tick Cancer Research UK as your chosen charity when you enter. You'll then hear from the organisers in September to let you know whether you've been successful in securing a ballot place.

If you have a confirmed place in the 2016 marathon, e.g. if you defered your place from last year or if you have a good for age place, and would like to join our team then email
