How to Enter

Deferred Entry

It is now too late to withdraw your entry from the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon. The deadline was 20:00 on Saturday 27 April 2019.

Providing you withdrew your entry before the deadline and had paid for your place, you will be offered a guaranteed place for the 2020 event. Please note this is not applicable to entries already carried over from the 2018 event or if the entry was received from a charity or sponsor. Specific rules regarding the deferral of a Good For Age place can be found here.

Please note:

  • You are required to pay the entry fee for the guaranteed place for 2020 and entry fees are not refundable under any circumstances.
  • It is only possible to withdraw and apply for a guaranteed place once. If you withdrew from the 2018 event, it is not possible for you to withdraw again in 2019.

If you have not received this link by Thursday 6 June 2019, please email our Customer Services team on as soon as possible and certainly no later than Friday 14 June 2019, otherwise you will lose your guaranteed entry for 2020.

The deadline for completion of the online guaranteed entry form is 17:00 on Friday 21 June 2019.
