Virgin Money London Marathon

Join us on Sunday 28th April 2019 for the Virgin Money London Marathon and enjoy running through some of the capital's most iconic landmarks.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is a truly amazing event and offers everything you could want from a race – a high quality course, enthusiastic charity runners and an inspiring and interesting route.

Join our team today

As a Battersea runner you will receive:

  • An invitation to our meet and greet event where you will receive a 'behind the scenes' tour of the Home
  • A fundraising pack
  • Training advice
  • Fundraising support from start to finish
  • A cheer team to support you on the day.
  • A bespoke running vest

I'd like to apply for a charity place

We're sorry, we are now full! Thank you to all of our supporters for applying. Unfortunately we have no more Battersea places available, but there are many other ways to raise funds for the dogs and cats in our care - please see details of our other challenges.

I already have my own place

If you have been lucky enough to secure a place in the public ballot, we would love for you to join our team.

We don't ask you to raise a minimum amount if you've got your own place, but we will support you every step of the way to raise as much as possible.
