Run the Virgin Money London Marathon For Tickets For Troops
TICKETS FOR TROOPS has two places for runners in next year’s Virgin Money London Marathon and we would like to invite Tickets For Troops members to send in their applications to gain one of these places to run on April 26th 2015 and help raise money for our fantastic charity.
We know how difficult it can be to gain a place at the marathon, whether you are a competitor who is making your London Marathon debut amongst 35,000 participants or are a marathon veteran, which is why we will be making our process of application as fair as possible.
We are inviting any TFT members to submit their applications to us including some key facts about themselves and any particular military stories they would like to share. We will then submit a shortlist to our panel of judges.
As you know, we have already donated over 500,000 tickets to members of the military since we launched in November 2009 and we rely on the wonderful generosity of our donors to help us keep up the good work. However, the charity also requires much needed funds to help us run on a day-to-day basis which is where your fundraising will go.
You can be sure of great support from Tickets For Troops as we will use all our social media channels to help you reach your targets, tell your story and urge our supporters to sponsor you as well as touching base with our friends in the media who will be interested to hear your story too.
Please submit your applications and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org by 22nd September 2014. The two runners chosen will be announced at the beginning of October.
P.s Don't forget to include your service number, current unit and rank in your application
