London Marathon team

Join our London Marathon team.

Thank you for your interest in running the 2018 Virgin London Marathon for the Miscarriage Association.

The London Marathon is our biggest fundraising event in the year, bringing in over a quarter of our annual funding needs. It makes a huge difference in helping us provide support and information for anyone affected by the loss of a baby in pregnancy, and it also helps to raise awareness of how we can help.

Getting a place

There are two main ways of getting a place in the London Marathon:

Via the ballot

If you enter the public ballot, you’ll find out if you were successful or not in October, so you might also want to apply for one of our charity places as a back-up plan.

Apply for one of our charity places

Our charity places are all managed by a small company called CRunCH (Charity Runners Clearing House). If you’d like a chance of joining our 2018 team, please visit CRunCH, read through their information about running for charity and click on the Miscarriage Association link in the charity tab.

You’ll see that applying for one of our places means committing to raise a minimum of £1500, so you may want to take some time to think if this is do-able and how you might go about it (we know it’s not always easy!). If you’re OK with that, please do complete the application form and note that you found the information on this website.

We’ll start looking at applications towards the end of June 2017.

If you already have a place

If you are fortunate enough to have your own place in VLM 2018 and would still like to be part of our team, please just get in touch. We’ll be delighted to welcome you to Team M.A..
