2014 Virgin London Marathon
If you want a guaranteed place to run in the Virgin London Marathon 2014 and raise money for charity you need one of our Gold Bond places. If you have your own place and would like to raise money for a very worthy cause then join us too. Every year The Lord's Taverners enters a team into the London Marathon.
How to Apply
All we ask is that you guarantee to raise a minimum of £2,020 in sponsorship money if you use one of our Gold Bond Places.
If you have your own place and would like to join our Marathon Team you are required to only raise a minimum of £300. All ages, speeds and abilities are encouraged to join our team and help the cause.
If you would like a place, please contact our London Marathon co-ordinator Jo Davis on 020 7821 2828 or email on email@example.com. Please join us in 2014 and help give young people, particularly those with special needs, a sporting chance.

2013 Virgin London Marathon
On April 21st 39 heroes set off on the challenge of a lifetime to help The Lord’s Taverners give more sporting chances to disadvantaged and disabled young people across the UK.
By the time they had crossed the finish line some 26.2 miles later, Team Taverners was well on track to exceed its £100,000 fundraising target – news that hopefully helps ease some of their pain today!
