The London Marathon

The Development team is excited to announce that we have a highly sought after place in the prestigious London Marathon 2022! It’s a golden opportunity to achieve that unrealised ambition of becoming a marathon runner.

These places are incredibly hard to come by and we expect applications for it to be competitive. It’s one of the greatest and most well-renowned marathons in the world and a ‘must-do’ for committed runners and first-time marathon runners alike.

Not only that, the College also has ten places for the Virtual London Marathon! Taking place on the same day as the mass event, Sunday 2 October, the virtual marathon provides participants of all abilities with the opportunity to complete their 26.2 miles over 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds – making it an inclusive option for anyone who might not have considered taking on a marathon before. You can take part wherever you want and you can split the distance however you like; you could run half in the morning and half at night, you could even split the distance with a friend (as long as you don’t mind sharing the medal).

All finishers will receive the same coveted TCS London Marathon medal and t-shirt as participants in the mass event, along with audio support and route tracking on the official app.

All runners will be raising money for the College’s Mecklenburgh Fund, a vital emergency financial assistance fund for Members struggling with living costs. So you must be willing and able to do your bit to meet the fundraising targets your place comes with.
