This 26.2 mile marathon is truly an incredible experience and we urge anyone who is interested in the challenge to enter our ballot below.

As a member of #teamhruk we will support you with:
• Training and nutrition tips
• You will also receive access to our closed Facebook Heart Research UK Virgin London Marathon runners group page to share your tips and receive advice from others across the UK
• A Heart Research UK t-shirt and running vest
• Fundraising ideas and tools – from posters and balloons to buckets and stickers
• Raise awareness of your support through local media
• Reception drinks the evening before the marathon at the Royal Horseguards Hotel
• Showers available for our runners after the marathon at the Royal Horseguards Hotel

Signing up for the marathon is a big commitment, not just the training but raising money too – but we’ll help you every step of the way.
