Put your best foot forward for Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice at the Iconic London Marathon

Can you imagine the electric atmosphere as 40,000 Olympians, club runners, joggers and the panto horse descend into London to make their way to the start of one of the most Iconic events in the world – The Virgin Money London Marathon.  You stand in your start pen, shoulder to shoulder, chatting nervously and waiting for the race to begin.  You know you have 26.2 miles to go but you will cheered on by over 80,000 spectators along the route and millions of TV spectators as you take in the famous landmarks of London.  And as you turn the corner to run the final stretch to the finish, you will be hit by a wall of noise that is just astonishing.  From somewhere you will find that last burst of energy, run over the line and collect the highly coveted London Marathon Medal.  YOU DID IT!

Zoë’s Place has ONE golden bond place available and we are looking for a special someone to represent our charity at this prestigious event. 


Our Gold Bond place has now been allocated to Mrs Jane Rudd - CONGRATULATIONS AND GOOD LUCK!!


If you have been lucky enough to secure your own place in the London Marathon ballot or have achieved a Good For Age Place, why not make your event even more memorable by raising funds for #TeamZoes.  Every penny you raise really does make a difference and as you are taking on such a monumental event, you are guaranteed to have the support and admiration of your friends, family and colleagues.



Whether you are our chosen charity place runner or using your own place to support Zoë’s Place, you can be assured that you will receive fantastic support in the build up to the event.  We have several members of the fundraising team who have completed the London Marathon who would be very happy to share their experience, hints and tips.  You will also be offered a hospice tour so you can see exactly how your efforts will make a difference.  You will be given our (go faster!) technical running T Shirt for training and the day of the event to make sure no-one misses you.  Wigs are optional!

You will also be offered a free place in the Coventry Half Marathon, an ideal event for London Marathon Training.  You will be encouraged to take part in our regular training sessions which will help with motivation during the winter months.
