Congratulations Virgin London Marathon runners!

2011 Virgin London MarathonCongratulations to everyone who took part in the 2011 Virgin London Marathon at the weekend!

The Virgin Money Giving team were out on the course along with our friends from Virgin Money making as much noise as possible as everyone was coming past.

35 Guinness World Records were broken on the day including the record for ‘most runners linked to complete  marathon’ by 47 Scope runners in a human Centipede. And Steve Chalke who broke the record for the most amount raised by a marathon runner, currently at £2,302,103.50!

We were joined by Richard Branson for the day, who after starting the race, cheering on the runners by mile 19, and helped hand out the medals and congratulate runners at the finish line.

You’ll find more of our favourite  photos over on our Facebook page.

Congratulations to everyone who took part! You’re all amazing, and hopefully enjoying a well deserved rest this week!
