How to Enter

Deferred Entry

If you are not able to take part in the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon for any reason, you must notify us by completing this form

Providing you withdraw your entry by 20:00 on Saturday 27 April 2019 and have paid the 2019 entry fee, you will be offered a guaranteed place for the 2020 event. However, 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.

Where a deferral to the following year does apply, the following terms and conditions apply:

•    You are required to pay the full entry fee for the 2019 and 2020 events 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.

Important: Participants who withdraw will receive an email link for a guaranteed entry form for the 2020 race on Monday 3 June 2019. If you have not received this by Tuesday 11 June, please email our Helpdesk at as quickly as possible and certainly no later than Wednesday 19 June. The closing date for completion of the online guaranteed entry form is 17:00 on Friday 21 June 2019.
