Virgin London Marathon
The London Marathon is one of the biggest running events in the world. It has been held each spring since 1981. The race is currently sponsored by Virgin Money, as the Virgin London Marathon. It is set over a largely flat course around the River Thames, beginning at three separate points around Blackheath finishing in the Mall alongside St. James’s Park. In addition to being one of the top five international marathons run over the traditional distance of 26 miles and 385 yards, (42.195km) the London Marathon is also a large celebratory sporting festival with around 30,000 amateur, club and fun runners taking part in the event. Many of these participants run to raise money for their favoured charities. Since 1981 the event has raised over £450 million for charity.
Each year, the Paget’s Association has Golden Bond places available in the London Marathon.
