About Meningitis Now's charity places

Our charity places are limited. Each year we receive many more applications than places available owing to the huge interest in the London Marathon.

Places are awarded based on the strength of applications, so we ask applicants to consider and explain in detail the motivation to run for Meningitis Now and plans to reach the £2,000 fundraising target.

Have you received your ballot place for 2019?

The Virgin Money London Marathon public ballot results are in. If you are one of the lucky few to secure your own place, we would love for you to run for Meningitis Now. Unlike our charity place runners, we won’t ask you to make a fundraising pledge, but we will offer the same fundraising support and team benefits listed below. Please complete the following form and a member of the team will give you a call and pop a fundraising pack in the post. We look forward to welcoming you to #TeamTangerine.
