Run the London Marathon for Wigwam

As you may have seen in todays Guernsey Press we are delighted to confirm that we have secured a charity place at the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon and we're welcoming applications from runners who would like to take part.  

With 40,000 runners completing the famous course earlier this year it is one of the world’s most popular running events, taking in many of London's famous landmarks along its route.   


Our Committee Member Rachel Donaldson explained how the place was secured "we applied for a charity place in the ballot in hope more than expectation. Needless to say we were a little shocked, in a good way, to learn that we'd been allocated a place". Rachel detailed some of the benefits it will bring by "giving us an opportunity to work alongside the runner to raise funds and build the profile of Wigwam. To think that just some of the 250,000 spectators along the route as well as those watching on TV may spot a runner wearing a Wigwam vest is very exciting".  

The selected placeholder will be expected to raise a minimum of £1250 for the charity. Support will be given to the runner with a free place at the Lee Merrien Running Club in the lead up to the big day in London on April 23rd 2017. 

Anyone who is interested in the place should send a paragraph stating "Why I would like to run the London Marathon for Wigwam" to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 31st October. A winner will be selected in early November.
