Thank you Virgin Money London Marathon runners!

Inspirational marathon runners raise over £250,000 for St John Ambulance

We want to say a big THANK YOU to all of our fantastic Virgin Money London Marathon runners! This year our 150 runners have raised £250,000 and counting to help us continue our life saving work - an amazing achievement.

Among them is Nikki Marsh, who took on the 26.2 mile challenge and was recently awarded our Fundraiser of the Year award after raising a staggering £5,265.

Supported by friends and family, Nikki undertook this very personal journey in memory of her friend’s son Arthur, who passed away in September 2014. The St John Ambulance team was instrumental in transferring Arthur to the children’s intensive care unit.

Thank you to everyone who took part - all the early-morning pavement pounding was worth it!

Feeling inspired?

We're already looking for our 2016 Virgin London Marathon running heroes. Run for the charity that picks you up, dusts you down and gets you over the finishing line - while raising vital life saving funds.
