Virgin London Marathon – Potters Field festival

Virgin London MarathonWith the first Virgin London Marathon just around the corner, we’d like to let you know about something special we’ve been working on with our friends at Virgin Money and adidas for this year’s race.

As well as cheering the runners around the course (more on this next week) we’re laying on a party at Potters Field next to Tower Bridge. We’ve got live music, a big screen to watch all the BBC coverage of the Marathon, and a kids challenge provided by adidas. There’s also a BBQ if you want to pick up a bite to eat.

Jo Good from 6 Music will be hosting the main stage where we’ve got live music, performances by the Kids Company and guest appearances from adidas athletes including British indoor 3000 metre runner Mo Farah and Olympic 400 metre freestyle Bronze medallist Jo Jackson.

adidas will be putting up its adiTOUR and running the adiCHALLENGE, an adventure course for children that will incorporate the sights and landmarks of the Virgin London Marathon .

You’ll also find our Virgin Angels handing out all the kit you need to make lots of noise and cheer along the runners.

Why not pop along and see us, we’ll be there from 9:45am until 4pm. We’d love to see you there!
