[UKPRwire, Tue Oct 07 2008] The official Flora London Marathon ballot for places is now closed and if you were not lucky enough to win a place then WRVS may just have a place for you.
WRVS has guaranteed places left for next year's marathon which takes place on Sunday 26 April. If you are interested in running, call our fundraising team on 0845 607 6524 or email our fundraising team.
Mike Haszko, WRVS event manager said: “Over the past five years, intrepid runners have raised over £30,000 for our work by taking part in one the great challenges - the Flora London Marathon.
