How to Enter

Deferred Entry Due to Illness or Injury

If you had to withdraw your 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon ballot entry through illness or injury we guarantee you an entry for the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon (unless you had already carried your ballot entry over from 2014), providing that you followed these simple instructions:

You needed to complete the online withdrawal form no later than Saturday 25 April 2015 at 20:00. If you completed the online withdrawal form, you would have been sent an email confirming your withdrawal.

Providing you adhere to the dates below and pay the appropriate entry fee, you will be accepted for the 2016 race unless you have already carried your entry over from the 2014 race or if the entry was received from a charity or sponsor.

Runners who withdrew from the 2015 race by 20:00 on Saturday 25 April 2015 will receive an email link for an ill or injured entry form for the 2016 race by Monday 1 June 2015. If you have not heard from us by Monday 1 June 2015 please telephone our Helpdesk on 020 7902 0200 between Monday 1 June and certainly no later than Wednesday 17 June 2015 – failure to do so will result in loss of entry. The closing date for completion of the online ill or injured entry form is 17:00 on Saturday 20 June 2015.

It is the runner’s responsibility to ensure they have completed their 2016 online ill or injured entry form and paid the 2016 entry fee by the closing date as it will not be extended under any circumstances.
