Blogging to the start line

Writing a blog to chart your marathon journey is really popular with over half of the runners who take to the start line of the Virgin London Marathon, typing their thoughts onto a personal blog.

A marathon is a huge commitment, taking time and effort for the training as well as trying to make as much money for your chosen charity as possible. Many people choose to chart this journey with their own blog. This could include details on your training runs, any races you’re involved in, fundraising events and how you’re feeling during the lead up to race day.

If you’re keen to set up a blog, log on to or and they’ll take you through the simple process of getting your blog up and running. Once you’ve got your blog designed and you’ve made your first post make sure you add it to your fundraising page. You can find out how to do that on our help guide.

Let us know if you’ve decided to set up a blog to chart your training and fundraising. If you’d like to feature your story on the Virgin Money Giving blog send us your story and a relevant picture to
