2015 Virgin Money London Marathon

Virgin Money London Marathon 2015

To everyone who took part in the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon, a huge congratulations from all of us at Virgin Money Giving. Whether you sprinted, rolled, jogged or crawled over the finish line, you did something that most of us will only ever dream of. So wear that medal with pride; wear it to the gym, wear it to the shops and definitely wear it to bed.

Now you’ve completed the 26.2 miles, here are four things you can do this week to boost your fundraising total:

  1. Update your fundraising page with a photo from Sunday. You can find the official Marathon Photo images by searching your name on the tracker website, or if you had a friend take a photo at the start, the finish or halfway round it will help show everyone you did it.
  2. Change the information on your page, let your supporters know how the run went, what time you did and how it felt crossing that finish line.
  3. Send a quick email to everyone you know – including people who’ve already donated. Let them know how much you’ve raised so far, your finishing time, and include a link to your fundraising page. When your friends and family find out how well you did, they might donate again!
  4. You can download a finisher certificate with your time from the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon, just put your details in here, you’ll find it just below your marathon timings.

We’d love to hear how it went for you, let us know by leaving a comment below.

    A once in a lifetime experience, my second marathon, my first London. The marathon is a massive 4 month plus journey of preparation and sleep deprivation, but totally worth every second. From the kindness of everyone in London over the weekend, the atmosphere at the start, the fantastic crowds supporting and the amazing organisation. My experience was topped off by a PB of 3h07m and raising nearly £14 k for the charity I ran for; Farm Africa.

    My Mum Veida Walker (62 yrs), also ran the marathon on Sunday. It was her 3rd London, her second was 23 years ago when she was 12 weeks pregnant with my now little brother Miles. She also had the most amazing experience, finishing in 4h44m and raising over £2500 for Wessex Cancer, which is the charity she also ran for 23 years ago!

    We didn’t run side by side, but ran together. We both thoroughly enjoyed the London Marathon experience.

    Thank you.
