If you’re one of the tens of thousands of people who have ever run the London Marathon, you’ll know what a tough but exhilarating a challenge it is.
We have huge admiration for anyone who decides to run the London Marathon for charity, and we’re really proud there will be a number of Alder Hey Children’s Charity vests amongst the crowds of runners this weekend. A massive good luck to everyone, no matter who you are running for!
Enter the 2017 London Marathon
Places for the London Marathon can be like gold dust, so even getting to the start line is an achievement!
Following each marathon, organisers hold a ballot for the next year so for the 2017 London Marathon ballot, keep an eye out from 2nd May. You'll have to be quick though, the ballot will only stay open for about a week!
To run the London Marathon for Alder Hey, this will be by far your best opportunity to secure a place. Once we know more, we’ll let you know on our Alder Hey Twitter.
