The run, which takes place on Sunday 23rd April 2017, starts 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 Team GAH please download the application form here and send the completed form to the office, alternatively email 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 Team GAH we’ll be on hand to provide all the support you need and we’ll send you a Tean GAH 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
  • VirginMoney Giving online fundraising page guide
