We have about 100 runners pulling on our bright orange running tops and taking on the 26.2 mile course through the capital, including our very own chief executive Dr Tom Nutt.
If you're going down to watch, give them a cheer and a clap as they pass to encourage them on their way, or join fellow Meningitis Now supporters at our cheering point at mile 23, just outside the Walrus and Carpenter pub in Monument Street.
Our runners will be among the many thousands of people from across the world taking part in the event, including some of the world’s top athletes. But hopefully, if you’re watching on TV at home you’ll catch a glimpse of some of them as they make their way to the finish line – just keep your eyes peeled for the orange vests, and give them a cheer.
Kirsty Owen-Hayward, event organiser at Meningitis Now, said, "We really appreciate everything all our runners are doing for us and wish them the best of luck on Marathon Day."
“We'll be looking after them once they've finished with some well-deserved pampering, including a sports massage, at our post-race reception."
“Their efforts, which we hope will raise over £200,000, will make such a huge difference to rebuilding futures torn apart by meningitis – thank you so much to everyone who’s taking part."
And, if watching the marathon inspires you to think ‘I could do that’ then we’d love to consider you for our team next year. Successful applicants will need to pay £100 registration fee and make a £2,000 fundraising pledge – the same as this year.
If you want to give it a go you'll be able to find out more and submit your application through our Virgin Money London Marathon page from Friday 26 April. The public ballot results will not be announced until October this year and the event is always really popular, so signing up for one of our guaranteed charity places is your best way to make sure it’s your turn next year.
