We are accepting applications for next year's Virgin Money London Marathon, scheduled for Sunday 3 October 2021.
The ballot for 2021 is closed! Apply for a charity place with Team Legion and join us for this iconic event.
We’ll ask you to pay a registration fee of £120 and fundraise £2000 to support the Armed Forces community.

If you have any further questions about the event, please give us a call on 0345 845 1945 or send us an email. You can also take a look at our frequently asked questions.
We follow government guidelines and put the health and safety of our participants, staff and beneficiaries first and foremost. If it is necessary to postpone an event, we will offer an alternative date and all fees and fundraising will be transferred over.
Please contact 0345 845 1945 if you’d like to know more about all we are doing.
The Royal British Legion will be assigning places on a rolling basis and will let everyone know if they’ve been successful by March 2021.
The final instructions magazine will be posted to you around four weeks before the event day. For the most up-to-date information, please do keep an eye on their website.
You will need to collect your marathon pack from the Virgin Money London Marathon EXPO on either the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday before the marathon. Please refer to the London Marathon website for timings closer to the event day.
All runners must attend the London Marathon Expo in order to collect their running number and timing chip. Failure to collect your race number will result in you unfortunately being unable to take part.
You’ll be required to show a form of photo identification in order to receive your event pack. If you’re unable to attend registration and wish to send a friend or relative to collect your event pack on your behalf, they must bring a form of photo identification for themselves and you as well as a signed letter of authorisation from you confirming that they can collect your event pack.
As part of the team you’ll receive:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, date of birth, telephone number, old address and new address. Your address details will then be changed in their system and a confirmation will be emailed to you when this has been done. Please do not call the helpdesk with changes of address as these can only be processed by email.
It goes without saying that it’s worth booking your accommodation sooner rather than later. Think about whether you want an easy journey to the starting zone (Greenwich Park) or if you want a shorter journey at the end (staying near the finish line in Central London).
