London Marathon 2018
Sign up to the 2018 London Marathon and help #breakthesilence for survivors of sexual violence.
Ranked among the top marathons in the world, the London Marathon is undoubtedly a special event to be part of and a memorable achievement for new and experienced runners alike.
Nexus NI has one bond marathon place available and we’d love you to run in aid of our work on Sunday, 22nd April 2018. Starting from Blackheath, you will run through many famous London districts and past iconic landmarks including the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.
As we only have one place available, applications will be considered on an individual basis so you are encouraged to complete a detailed fundraising plan. We will be accepting applications until the end of October 2017.
If successful, we ask you to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £100 and raise a minimum sponsorship of £1300 (excluding Gift Aid).
We will do all we can to support you in your marathon journey. When you run for Nexus NI, you will receive:
- Personal support from our dedicated Community Fundraiser – here to answer any questions you have along the way
- A technical Nexus NI running t-shirt
- Sponsor forms and fundraising information to help you meet and beat your fundraising target
- Regular updates throughout to keep you up to date with all you need to know for the day
To apply, please email email@example.com for an application form.
