Virgin Money London Marathon


Join Team 150 in our 150th Anniversary year!

Sunday 26 April 2015

The London Marathon is the UK's landmark race, and the world’s most famous marathon. Each year 35,000 runners take part and thousands of cheering spectators line the iconic course through central London from Blackheath to The Mall: the atmosphere is, quite simply, incredible.

2015 will be our 150th Anniversary, and we're looking for 150 runners to join our 'Team 150' to help us raise much needed funds for our work with homeless people.

Please join us – we’d love to have you on our team!

How to get a place:

1.  Run with your 'Own Place'. The public ballot has now closed and the results will be announced in early October. If you are lucky enough to get a place in the ballot we would love you to join our 'Team 150' and run for us! You'll receive the same first-class support and all the benefits that our charity place runners receive, but you won't have to raise a minimum sponsorship amount.

2.  Apply for a Salvation Army charity place. We have a limited number of places and we are taking applications for 2015 now!

Please complete this short online form and we will send you an information pack and an application form for one of our Golden Bond places.

We will support you in every step of the way

As part of Team 150 you will receive full support throughout your marathon journey, including:

·    A breathable Salvation Army running vest with iron-on letters for your name
·    Training Plans for beginner, intermediate and advance runners
·    A fundraising pack crammed full of ideas
·    A dedicated London Marathon Rep to give you fundraising support
·    A Training Run to help prepare you for the big day
·    Team Sally Army Pre-race pasta party in Central London
·    Post-race massages
·    Support from The Salvation Army Cheering Squad on race day
·    Fantastic team camaraderie
·    Regular newsletters
·    Facebook group

The atmosphere on the day was absolutely incredible. There were over 700,000 people cheering, and when it got really tough they were vital in helping me to keep going. I will remember it for the rest of my life! The Salvation Army were really supportive of me throughout the process and I'm really glad I did it!"
