Why choose the Virgin Money London Marathon?

There is nothing quite like the buzz of marathon day in the capital, and every year over 100 runners take on the truly awesome and iconic Virgin Money London Marathon in aid of MS-UK!

When you join #TeamPurple it’s about more than just running. You will be helping us continue our work supporting people affected by multiple sclerosis, and that’s what it’s all about.

We take your commitment seriously, so every single MS-UK marathon runner has a dedicated member of the fundraising team who is there to support you every step of the way. On the road to race day you’ll get a personalised welcome pack, a MS-UK technical running t-shirt or vest with your name on, a closed Facebook group so you can connect with other team members, regular e-newsletters and a chance to meet the team in person at the Virgin Money London Marathon Running Show the week before.

Marathon day itself is the highlight of our fundraising calendar, so we’ll have cheering points on the course and after you get that medal you can relax with a sports massage at our post-race reception, where you’ll be greeted like a hero by your friends and family and the MS-UK team.
