Run the London Marathon for the Whittington's Building for Babies appeal

Step up to the challenge and run the London Marathon for The Whittington's Building for Babies Appeal!

If you've applied for a place and are successful, why not join our team?

However, if you do not get a place (you will hear during the first week of December), we have seven guaranteed marathon places and we are looking for people to run and raise money for our worthy cause. These places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Whittington's Building for Babies Appeal was launched in May 2006 to move, expand and re-equip the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where we treat babies who are born too early or who are ill at birth. We are halfway to meeting our target of 600,000.

In return for running and raising money for the appeal, we will put you in touch with sports development experts and help you get the best out of your training, in addition to helping you with your fundraising efforts.

For more information, please call Deborah Goodhart on 020 7288 5983 or email
