Virgin London Marathon

The Virgin London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet – runners have raised over £500 million for good causes since the race began in 1981. If you'd like to get involved and run for the DFSG charity, here's how to get in touch:


What are charity entries?

Most major charities have a set number of entry places in the Virgin Money London Marathon each year through a Golden and Silver Bond scheme. They allocate these places to runners on the basis that they will raise an agreed amount of money for the charity.


Raising Money

Once you’ve secured a charity place, set up your Just Giving page and let all your family and friends know that you’re running for DFSG. Set your page target based on the amount you need to raise for your charity place so people know what your goal is.


How do I apply for a charity entry?

To apply for a charity place, you'll need to contact DFSG and see if we've got any places to offer you.
