With less than two weeks to go, it’s time to give your Virgin Money London Marathon fundraising a final boost – and here are some tips to help!

1. Set a target

Sounds simple and it is! Those fundraisers who set a target for their 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon event, went on to raise a staggering 64% more those who didn’t!

2. Personalise your page

Telling your story and inspiration for why you’re running, as well as making sure your fundraising url is something memorable to you, will both inspire and make it easy for people to find your page.

3. Download our fundraising app

This not only helps you keep track of your fundraising, it also allows you to get donations when you’re on the move. This can help drive up your fundraising by 19%. If you have an Apple device, you can find the app here and if you’re on Android, it’s here.

4. Create your free personalised film

This proved very popular last year and helped our fundraisers raise an extra 10%. Create your very own funny film where Stephen Fry asks for donations on your behalf.

5. Social sharing

Our last tip but probably the quickest, could help drive your fundraising total up by 14% when you post your fundraising url to your Facebook timeline – don’t forget to add a picture!
