Take on the biggest event in the running calendar and help support patients and families when they need it most.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is quite simply – legendary. Not only is it bucket-list worthy with one of the most iconic routes imaginable, it’s also the world’s largest fundraising event…and we want to help you be a part of it!

Our charity place

We have one Forever Friends silver bond place up for grabs for the 2017 race!

To apply all you need to do is email Laura, our Events Fundraiser at laurapearce1@nhs.net telling us why you want to run the London Marathon for The Forever Friends Appeal and what it would mean to you. Please note, you will also need to confirm that you are able to commit to raising a minimum of £1,750 in sponsorship and briefly explain how you might reach this target – you can choose to use your run to support any ward/department at the Hospital that’s close to your heart or the RUH Cancer Care Campaign
Applications for the place will close on Thursday 26th January. All applicants will be notified of the outcome the following week
