Introducing the Virgin Money Giving Runners Club

To help you get ready for the 2011 Virgin London Marathon we’ve created the exclusive Virgin Money Giving Runners Club.   The Club is free to join and offers an exciting package of benefits to Virgin London Marathon runners using Virgin Money Giving to fundraise.

Members get access to professional training support, the chance to win some fantastic prizes, plus discounts on running essentials.

By being part of our Runners Club you’ll be able to:

  • Enter our prize draw to win a VIP race day experience for you and 4 spectators
    Start from the Green start with the celebrities and VIPs and your spectators will watch you cross the finish line from the grandstands.
  • Get 20% off running gear
    We’ll send you a discount voucher to get a fantastic 20% off running gear at Sweatshop.
  • Receive professional advice from the experts
    Podcasts from two-time Olympic marathon runner Liz Yelling and coaching expert Martin Yelling.  Plus the chance to win a place at one of our Marathon workshops.
  • Collect a special free gift
    When you collect your runner number at the Marathon Expo, make sure you visit the Virgin Money Giving stand where we’ll have a little something for you.

    I would like to thank the organisers of Virgin Money Giving for making fundraising alot easier.
    Would it be possible to have a shorter web address as this would help when using the likes of Twitter and also for printing purposes.

    Hi Gareth,

    Thanks for the nice feedback.

    http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/GarethERees would work as a short web address for your page. Shortening URL’s further is an area we are keen to look at again as part of our ongoing development.

    Best of luck with your fundraising!

    I am writing to thank the whole Virgin Money Giving team for thier good work of making fundraising easier. When i was young we had no running water and i used to travel five miles to get it, thats is the reason why am raising money for WaterAids to supports its amazing work.

    I work for St Michael’s Hospice in Hereford and wondered whether this Runners Club is only for entrants of the London Marathon, as we organise the Hereford Half Marathon and would love to offer this to our race entrants, too.

    Thanks,
    Anika (Communications Officer)

    Hi Anika

    Our Virgin Money Giving runners club is currently just for fundraisers in the 2011 Virgin London Marathon. We’ve started with the London Marathon as Virgin Money is the event sponsor, but we’ve had a several requests to extend it to other events too, which we’ll look into for the future.
