Virgin London Marathon

The Virgin London Marathon is one of the word’s most famous road races and is a lifetime achievement for anyone who takes on the 26 mile challenge from Greenwich Park to the Mall.

The only way to run the London Marathon in aid of Mercy Ships is by gaining a place in The Ballot.

The Ballot closed for 2019 on Friday 5 May 2018. Thank you to everyone who entered for Mercy Ships – we’ve got everything crossed for you!
