2019 london marathon team

Virgin Money London Marathon

Sunday ​​3 October 2021

Apply now for your virtual place for 2021

Rennie Grove is very fortunate to have 5 Virtual Virgin London Marathon places. ​So, if you want to make 2021 the year you really challenge yourself we would like to invite you to be part of the Rennie Grove team.  

The Virtual event is taking place on the same day as the physical Virgin London Marathon - with the added benefit that there is no cut-off time. This means that you can complete your challenge at any point in that 24 hours.

If you would be interested in taking part, and help to raise vital funds to provide care and support to patients at the end of their life, please email: Emily.elvin@renniegrove.org

How we help you

cheering squad

We value our London Marathon team very highly and will look after you throughout your marathon journey. If you're taking part in the physical event, we will have a Rennie Grove cheering squad on the day to spur you on! If you're running in the virtual event, we will be with you in spirit and of course, online.

We host regular "meet the team" evenings where you can swap training notes and fundraising ideas and get to know us and your fellow team members. At the moment, we are hosting these virtually but really hope we'll be in a position to meet you in person when we are safely able to do so.

Merry Wright and Rennie BearWe ask each of our runners​ to raise a minimum sponsorship and we are always on hand with practical fundraising support. We can help you with:

  • A team JustGiving fundraising page where ​you can track the whole team's total
  • Personalised sponsor forms
  • Posters
  • Resources tailored to any fundraising event you may organise

Every member of our team will be given a personalised, breathable running vest that you can wear during your training and for the event itself, which greatly enhances the team spirit of the event.
We also have a dedicated Facebook group and Whats App group for you to share tips and discuss training. 

Social Events

London Marathon pasta night 2019As well as our "meet the team" evenings, we host a pasta night a few days before the event so that you can build up on your carb intake, compare notes with your fellow team members and share in the pre-race excitement. We also host a reunion after the race to congratulate you on your achievements and to thank you for being part of the Rennie Grove team.

We would love you to be a part of our team for next year's London Marathon! Please get in touch using the details below.
