London Marathon 2021

Run for St John’s Hospice!

Could you be the lucky winner of our one and only charity place? Charity places aren’t awarded every year to St John’s Hospice so we are extremely fortunate to be awarded a charity runner place for 2021!

This means we are inviting applications from runners who would like this coveted place to run the Virgin London Marathon for St John’s Hospice. To apply, all you need to do is read the Frequently Asked Questions document and if you decide to go ahead, just complete the application form by Sunday 14 March.

If you are the chosen runner for St John’s Hospice know that we’ll support you all the way from confirmation, to fundraising, to finding out more about the Hospice care that you are running for. We will be backing our runner right through the experience because quite simply the St John’s Hospice runner will be running with the hearts of the whole Hospice team behind them.

2021 is an extra special year for St John’s Hospice as we are celebrating our 35th birthday year. Make this your special year too by taking part and raising funds to support patients and their families during one of the most difficult times they will face.

Help us to help your community – thank you

Online application form:

  • DD slash MM slash YYYY
  • Please let us know what you do for a living

    Please tick to agree to the following declaration:

    I agree that if my application is successful, I pledge to raise a minimum of £2,620 (excluding Gift Aid) for St John’s Hospice. The minimum sponsorship amount of £2,620 must be exclusive of match funding. 

    Each place costs a charity money to buy. As a result, if you are successful in obtaining the St John’s Hospice place in the Virgin London Marathon, we will ask that you pay a £100 non-refundable registration fee to St John’s Hospice. This registration fee does not form part of the minimum £2,620 sponsorship requested. 

    I wish to apply for the St John’s Hospice charity place at the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon and understand that, should I receive such a place, it will remain the property of St John’s Hospice. I pledge to raise a minimum of £2,620 for the charity. If I have to pull out of the event due to injury, I will have to reapply for the following year. Any sponsorship I may have received will be my responsibility to offer back to my supporters (via Virgin Money Giving etc). This is in accordance with the Fundraising Regulations.
