We’ve done the London Marathon before, but never for a cause so close to our hearts. Picturing Freya, we ran faster, tried that little bit harder. It feels amazing to have crossed the finish line for her. The support along the way was like nothing else I have seen before. If you are going to do a marathon, make it London and run it for #TeamOrange.

– Laura, #TeamOrange runner

Perks of the jog 

We understand the huge commitment our runners make to take on this epic challenge. In return, we offer you a support package that caters for your every pre- and post-race need. We’ll give you:

  • a detailed fundraising guide and fundraising advice from our experienced events team
  • access to our #TeamOrange “Training Zone”, expert training tips, information on injury prevention and race nutrition
  • a personalised running vest and orange laces
  • support from THREE enthusiastic #TeamOrange cheer squads along the route
  • access to our lively and friendly Facebook group to chat with other members of the team
  • a post-event celebration where, as one previous runner said, we treat you ‘like a rock star’, with massages, showers and refreshments, just a stroll away from the finish line

Every year we receive high volumes of applications which is wonderful. The number of applications we receive every year exceeds the number of places we have to allocate so we have come up with a process to allocate applications which is detailed here London Marathon Golden Bond place allocation
