Did you apply for a ballot place at next year’s Virgin Money London Marathon, and miss out?

Well don’t panic as our charity partner, Action for Children, may just be able to offer you that precious place to take part in the most iconic marathon in the world on Sunday 26 April 2020.

Do you fancy a chance to take in some of London's greatest landmarks over 26.2 miles while raising vital funds for the 387,000 children Action for Children help each year?

By taking part, you’ll be supporting the Royal Mail-funded Blues Programme, Action for Children’s internationally acclaimed preventative mental health programme, which has already supported more than 3,250 young people up and down the country.

But hurry, as Action for Children have limited spaces left. Click here to sign up today to the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon and join Action for Children in the race to support young people's mental health.

Remember, Royal Mail will cover the cost of your registration fee, so that all the money you raise, will be directly invested into the Blues Programme. Additionally, with Royal Mail's penny for penny matched giving programme, your donation will make an even greater difference.

Places are highly competitive so make sure to detail why you would like to run for Action for Children and how you plan to reach your £2,000 fundraising target.

From signing up for the world’s most famous run to celebrating afterwards at Action for Children’s post-race party, our charity partner will be on hand to support you every step of the way. For more information or for support with your application, email Vicky at RoyalMail@actionforchildren.org.uk.

Don’t delay, the deadline for applications is Monday 18 November. Good luck!
