Marathon Runners – Join the #extramile

The #extramile website

If you’re running the Virgin Money London Marathon you might want to take a quick look at a new website from our friends at Virgin Money.

The #extramile website is a place for Virgin Money London Marathon runners to share stories, read running tips and swap fundraising hints.  You can get involved and contribute your story, and if you Tweet or Instagram use the #extramile hashtag and your posts will feature in the timeline.

Every week they’ll be running Instagram and Twitter competitions too, and the first one is for one of five £100 donations. You can find out how to enter here.

The website will also follow the progress of Ibi Ali & Duncan from Walking with the Wounded, and Steven & Melissa running for Anthony Nolan. We’ve got a little film to introduce them:

So whether you want to see what other runners do to boost their training, share pictures of the routes on which you train or find out the best way to raise money for your charity; get running, get blogging, get Tweeting, get sharing pictures and videos on Instagram and don’t forget the hashtag #extramile.

Why not take a look extramile.co.uk.
