Run for Coram in the 2013 London Marathon /

Can you run the 2013 London Marathon for local children's charity, Coram and help give more children a better chance in life?  Coram are looking for runners to join their team in the Virgin London Marathon 2013, the largest race of its kind and the world’s biggest fundraising event.  There are limited places in the event, and only runners who are confident in their ability to meet or exceed the fundraising target will be selected.

If you would like to take on the challenge and apply successfully, you will be asked to pay £50 upfront by the end of November, in order to secure your place, and then raise at least £1,700 in sponsorship preferably by the time of the Marathon.  Remember that every pound you collect will make a difference towards Coram’s work in creating better chances for the UK's most vulnerable children.

Alternatively, if you have been awarded your own place through the ballot and would like to raise money for Coram then please get in contact at

Your support will help Coram to help children like twin sisters, Chloe and Daisy and baby Sarah. You can also get inspired by reading about what motivated some of the twenty-seven runners from our 2012 ‘Team Coram’, here.
