Virgin Money London Marathon 2020

We’d love you to join The Brain Tumour Charity team and take on the legendary Virgin Money London Marathon 2020!

We’re the only brain tumour charity propelling progress across the three most vital fronts: finding new treatments, offering support to everyone affected, driving the changes our community need most. But we can't do it without you!

Our Gold Bold places

Applications for our Gold Bond places are now closed.

What happens next?
 We’ll notify applicants of the outcome by the beginning of October 2019.

Every application will be reviewed by our panel, made up from people across The Charity, who have the hard decision of selecting the team. Each year we’re blown away by the number of applications we receive for our Gold Bond places, but with only 37 places on offer in 2020, we really have our work cut out!

If you have any questions, please take a look at our FAQs.

We ask our runners to raise a minimum of £2,700 for their Virgin Money London Marathon place. This could fund two weeks of world-class research; in this time, researchers could test the response of glioblastoma cells to a new drug to determine if it stops growth.

Together, we will accelerate change for everyone affected by brain tumours.

If you have any questions, please email us or call on 01252 237867.
