Apply for a guaranteed charity spot in the London Marathon

HAVE any of the Dispatch readers out there been lucky enough to secure a place in the 2013 London Marathon through the public ballot? Or would you like one of our guaranteed charity places?

World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) is appealing to those who have their own place or would like to take up a charity place to consider fundraising for us.

WCRF is the principal UK charity dedicated to the prevention of cancer through research into and the promotion of a healthy diet, nutrition, physical activity and weight management.

So not only will taking part help you get into the kind of habits that can reduce your own cancer risk but the money raised will help us continue to fund our research and education programmes on cancer prevention.

Whether you are lucky enough to have had a successful ballot application, or would like one of our guaranteed golden bond places, we offer every runner the same outstanding level of support — training and nutritional advice; a welcome pack; a WCRF running vest; a personal online sponsorship page; a January reception with experts offering training and fundraising tips; regular team training runs; and a post-race reception with free massage and shower.
