Our free Virgin London Marathon kitbags are on their way

 The first batch of our exclusive ‘Virgin London Marathon kit bags’ have been popped in the post.

If you’re fundraising on Virgin Money Giving for the 2013 Virgin London Marathon, and have already started to collect donations through your page you should be receiving yours shortly.

We’ve also put an ‘I’m running’ postcard in the bag, just write your fundraising page address on it and stick it somewhere for everyone to see (maybe by the coffee machine at work?). There’s a bag of Jelly Babies in there too, a great ‘quick sugar release’ you can eat while running – an alternative to gels.

And finally, the fashion accessory no fundraising runner should be without – a Virgin Money Giving sweat band. Not just handy while you’re on a run outside or on the treadmill, but we’ve got a little something planned for them, so watch this space.

It’s not too late to get yours, there’s 20,000 of them and still lots available, so why not create your page now.

    Hi Andy

    Unfortunately we can’t produce them for every event we support, but there are lots of other competitions in the pipeline for people taking part in all events. Keep an eye on our blog, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news.

    I started my page a few weeks before you announced the giveaway (as soon as I found out I had a VLM place) have I missed the window?

    Hi Em

    Not at all, as long as you’re one of the first 20,000 fundraisers to have created a page and started to receive donations we’ll pop one in the post for you.
