Win £250 for your charity – on stage at the Virgin London Marathon Expo

Ore Oduba on stage

If you’ve already collected your 2013 Virgin London Marathon race number, you might have spent some time at the ‘Pasta Party’ in the Virgin area at Expo.

All through the day a number of speakers take to the stage giving you race details, hydration advice, and pacer information to help you get around (full schedule here) including a number of celeb runners. You might have caught our ‘Higher or Lower’ game too.

Higher Lower participants

Anyone who’s running can take part, you just need to pick up one of the huge red arrows being handed out as the game starts. our host Ore Oduba (from BBC Sport and Newsround) will be on stage guiding you though the game – simply guess whether the next runner number shown on the big screen will be higher or lower than the last one using your arrow.

The last runner left in the game will receive a £250 donation to the charity of their choice.

There’s still time to win, the approx timings for Friday & Saturday’s ‘Higher or Lower’ games are below (listen out for announcements in the Expo).

  • Friday – 13:25
  • Friday – 16:45
  • Friday – 18:35
