London Marathon FAQs
The ballot is now closed for the 2013 Virgin London Marathon.
When will I hear the results from the London Marathon Ballot?
If you applied for a ballot place, you should have heard from the London Marathon organisers in October. They send you a magazine called Marathon News which notifies you if you have been successful or not.
If I did get a place in the ballot, what should I do?
Join our team! You just need to complete our online form and remember to tick the Own Place box.
How much do I have to raise if I have my own place in the London Marathon?
We just ask you to commit to raising as much as you can!
How do I apply for one of the Mental Health Foundation's charity places?
You can apply for a Mental Health Foundation place here. There is a minimum sponsorship pledge of £1,500 and a non refundable registration fee of £50 (+VAT).
What sort of support will the Mental Health Foundation offer me?
We will provide you with a fundraising pack once you sign up, regular emails and telephone calls to keep in touch, organise a pre-race reception so you get to meet some of the other runners and staff at the Mental Health Foundation and a cheering point on the day with a post race reception for all your supporters, including masseurs!
Where can I get more specific information about the race day itself?
You can visit the London Marathon website and view a map of the course and get training and nutrition tips here.
