Virgin Money London Marathon ballot place

After eight years of entering, I was finally allocated a place in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020.

Typically, I had fallen pregnant in between entering the ballot and when the ballot results were announced, and would be eight months pregnant on race day! So, I deferred to 2021, which takes place on 3rd October. 

I can’t explain how excited I am, and how grateful, to finally take part in the London Marathon. It’s been on my wish-list since I started running in 2013, and I know it sounds ridiculous, but it’s a dream come true! It’s a World Major event, and I can’t wait.

Virgin Money London Marathon 2021Although I was allocated a ballot place and don’t need to request a charity place, I have decided to run for Beat, the Eating Disorder charity, in order to raise a few pennies and some awareness for them. The charity is close to my heart, and I would love to run the 26.2 miles wearing their vest. I have set up a JustGiving page and will start to request donations when marathon training commences in summer. Every little helps, and I’m hoping that even just £100 will make a difference to the charity!

Bring on October  🙂
