We are delighted to say that we have been inundated with applications for the 2020 marathon. Unfortunately, this means we have to close the ballot applications now. Thank you to all those who have offered to run in support of LOROS - we are so lucky to have such a great community behind us.

If you would still like to run a marathon for LOROS, have you considered the Leicester Marathon in October.

Join #TeamLOROS and have a go at running one of the world’s most prestigious marathons on closed roads through London.

The London Marathon is one of the most desirable running events in the world. Approximately 35,000 runners get the privilege of bounding stride after stride through street after street of the magnificent and iconic capital of England.

2020 Vision
Whatever your vision for 2020, with our support and the support of other LOROS runners we’ll have you crossing that line in April 2020. Whether it’s your first Marathon or you’re a seasoned pro we’ll have thousands of people screaming your name as the crowd lined streets create an atmosphere to rival that of any sporting event on the planet.

Entry Information
The cut-off date for entries is 26th May 2019 and we will announce the lucky LOROS runners in the first week of June. When fundraising, we ask all our runners to aim for the sky but the minimum amount of sponsorship required to gain a place with us is £1,650.

You are not alone! You’ll have a dedicated contact here at LOROS, and the support of others who are running for team LOROS.

We will offer guidance through your training and preparation via training plans, training runs and advise forums and you will be provided with a sought after LOROS running vest!

When it comes to fundraising, we can support you too. We’ll loan you equipment and suggest ideas for topping up those pots!

What we can achieve
Through your valuable and much-needed support, we can affect the lives of others in their time of need. Previous marathons have enabled us to do amazing things here at the hospice - let’s make the London Marathon 2020 an even bigger success.

With your help, funds raised via the 2020 London Marathon team could enable us to run our day therapy service for more than two weeks, supporting over 200 people.

Your donations alone could pay for a specialist nurse for over two weeks at LOROS. Go for it!
