Virgin Money London Marathon

Virgin Money London Marathon

Join Team Starfish in one of the world’s most iconic marathons – the Virgin Money London Marathon 2022

We are now accepting applications for 2022.

As you may know, due to the impact of COVID19 the 2020 event was not able to go ahead in its normal mass participation format. All the runners who had a place through the Family Holiday Association have been offered the opportunity to run in 2021. Whilst that means we currently have no new places for 2021 we are recruiting now for 2022.

Registration fee: £100

Fundraising pledge: minimum £2,250 (excluding Gift Aid)

The Virgin Money London Marathon is undoubtedly one of the most popular and largest annual fundraising events in the world. The course follows the famous route taking in many of our capital’s landmarks, such as Tower Bridge, the Cutty Sark and The Mall. An iconic event that’s high on everybody’s bucket list, so apply to be part of Team Starfish today!

Why run the Virgin Money London Marathon for the Family Holiday Association?

As a Family Holiday Association runner, you will receive support from us throughout the lead up to the event, as well as the following benefits:

  • a place in one of the world’s most famous sporting events
  • a personalised charity running vest or tech top to wear on the day
  • free charity t-shirts for you and your supporters
  • fundraising tips and ideas, and promotional materials such as balloons and stickers
  • training and nutritional advice
  • an invitation for you, your family and close friends to join our post-race pasta party – this includes a free massage from one of our professional massage therapists (sorry, runners only!)

You will be raising money to help struggling families benefit from a much-needed break. For many, it will be the first time they have ever spent time away from home, seen the sea or played in the sand.

“If you want to run the London Marathon, you must do it for this charity. The Family Holiday Association were fantastic and made the experience unbelievable, not only for me but for my whole family. They couldn’t do enough for us all and allowed us to make memories to cherish forever”
– London Marathon 2019 Team Starfish runner
