Posted by Anne-Marie on April 30, 2018

London Marathon

Calling all runners! It’s now time to apply for your place for the Virgin Money London Marathon 2019.

Are you feeling inspired by the story of our #TeamGAH London Marathon 2018 runners and want to follow them and run the race that everyone wants to do.

The London Marathon will take place on Sunday 28th April 2019 and will start in Greenwich Park. Get A-Head runners will travel the route that takes in iconic landmarks including Cutty Sark, London Bridge and the London Eye before crossing the finish line on The Mall near Buckingham Palace, whilst raising much needed funds for the fight against all head and neck disease.

To apply for a place in #TeamGAH please download the application form here and send the completed form to the office, alternatively email info@getahead.org.uk and we’ll send you an application form.  Registration for the event is £50 and we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £2,000 in sponsorship.  As the London Marathon is so iconic we always receive more applications than we have places available, so the Team at Get A-Head will award places to the strongest applicants.

If you are successful in obtaining a place and become a member of #TeamGAH we’ll be on hand to provide all the support you need and we’ll send you a #TeamGAH Welcome Pack, which includes

  • Your Get A-Head running vest or T-shirt
  • A Marathon Training Guide that has plenty of handy tips
  • Get A-Head sponsor forms – for those people who don’t like sponsoring on-line
  • Fundraising Posters
  • VirginMoney Giving online fundraising page guide
