You can be a part of Team #BrainResearch 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon Team by either securing a place through the Public Ballot, or by running on one of our Charity Places (see further down this page).
We want to give you the best possible marathon experience – so you have a marathon to remember whilst helping to raise funds for vital neurological research.
The public ballot for the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon has now closed. It was open from 28 April until 3 May 2019. All ballot entrants will find out their result by the end of October 2019. If you’ve been successful in the Public Ballot you can join our team straight away. If you have been unsuccessful then there is a chance to get a Brain Research UK Charity Place.
We have charity places in the 2020 London Marathon. To apply, please complete our application form. We will consider a range of factors when allocating our places, including personal reasons for taking part, fundraising targets and when you have applied.

Brain Research UK has always been so close to my heart after everything that happened to my family.
