Virgin London Marathon 2019

Event Overview

The world’s most iconic and largest marathon is back! We are very pleased to be able to offer seven dedicated Cats Protection supporters the chance to run in the 2019 event and raise vital funds.

We only have limited gold bond places and therefore take applications from people wishing to run on behalf of Cats Protection. You can of course nominate a local branch or centre to support.

Please register your interest by emailing us.

After we confirm whether you have been accepted for a place, we will ask you to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £50 and pledge to raise a minimum of £2000.

Have your own place? Join our team of cat champions and set up your fundraising page here

We will provide you with full support and ideas to ensure you feel confident in raising the required minimum. We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise lots of much needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens.
