Your own place in the ballot

If you are successful in the Virgin Money London Marathon public ballot and received your accepted magazine, or you got your place through a running club, or have a deferred entry we would be delighted to have you join the Mind team, just let us know.

As an own place runner, you receive all the same support from our dedicated Events Team as those with the charity place, but there are no sponsorship targets to meet.

We are always grateful for your support and for any funds you can raise for Mind.
