Virtual London Marathon, October 2022

We have a limited number of places available for the virtual London Marathon on Sunday 2 October 2022!

If you’ve always dreamed of being part of the London Marathon, but are not able to travel to the capital, are unsure you’ll ever be able to run 26.2 miles in one go or have simply never got round to entering the ballot, we have a solution for you: join our team and take part in the virtual London Marathon on Sunday 2 October 2022!

There is a £28 registration fee (the cost we pay for the place) and a £1,000 fundraising pledge so that your run can help to enable safer birth in the Jawadhi Hills.

If you join the Friends of Vellore UK marathon team, you’ll receive a free Team Friends of Vellore UK running vest or tshirt as well as a fundraising pack with great tips to help you hit your fundraising target.

Most importantly, we’ll provide you with a reason to keep going because you’ll know your donations will be helping to build an urgently needed labour ward in the Jawadhi Hills!
