Ballot entry

The Virgin Money London Marathon operate a ballot for their places. The public ballot entry system for the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon is now open and will close on Friday 3 May at 5pm. The results will be announced in October.

If you're one of the lucky few who secure your own place, we’d love for you to join our team. There's no minimum fundraising pledge and you still get all the great Team Macmillan benefits, including VIP access to our post-race party just minutes from the finish line.

Team Macmillan charity places

Please note any applications must be received by 30th June 2019 at 11.59pm to be considered.

To be considered for one of our limited and highly sought after Team Macmillan places, please fill in our 'get a place' form. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £2,500 (excluding gift aid), and there’s a £100 registration fee (The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year).

We receive, on average, 13 applications for every 1 place we have, so please include as much information as possible. Each application will be assessed on its individual merits, rather than on a first-come-first-serve or ballot basis. Places will be awarded based on your motivations for choosing Macmillan and how you will raise the minimum sponsorship.

Please note, we can only take individual applications. We are not able to allocate places to teams or make any exceptions in giving places to family/ friends of successful applicants.

We will start notifying successful applications in the Summer 2019. If you are successful in getting a charity place, we will be in contact no later than the 28th September 2019.
