The Virgin Money London Marathon is a truly inspiring event, with over 39,000 people taking part every year! Running for Pendleside Hospice will help us support people in Burnley and Pendle who have a life limiting illness, their family and carers.
We have 5 Golden Bond places for the 2019 marathon available which we ask people to fill in an application form for and then make our selection.
We ask each of our runners to raise a minimum of £1,500 (not including Gift Aid) but offer support so don’t worry!
All runners are given a fundraising pack containing sponsor forms, posters and a running vest but we can also provide raffle tickets, prizes, buckets, posters etc for any fundraising events you might wish to organise to raise the money. Runners in previous years have held curry nights for family and friends, coffee mornings/bake sales and Race Nights to name just a few!
The application closing date is Monday 22nd October and all applicants will be contacted within the week to find out if they have been successful or not in getting a place.
If you entered the Virgin Money ballot, you will find out early-mid October whether or not you have been successful. If you are successful in gaining your own place and would like to raise money for Pendleside we can provide you with fundraising support.
Contact Sammi in the Fundraising Team on 01282 440128 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more or to get an application form.
Thank you and good luck!
