Apply for the 2017 London Marathon

The London Philharmonic Orchestra has been given a handful of hugely coveted places in the Virgin Money London Marathon and we are recruiting runners to take part. With the public ballot now closed securing a charity space is the only way to participate in the 2017 event.

Applicants have until Sunday 11 December to register their interest in taking part for Team LPO, and must commit to raising a minimum of £2,000 in sponsorship for the Orchestra’s education programme.

Apply now

Specifically, our runners will be fundraising to enable 12,000 young people to attend the Orchestra’s BrightSparks school concerts. Each concert is tailored to a specific age group and provides many with their first experience of a full symphony orchestra. Every £9 raised enables one child to attend a concert. The individual fundraising target of £2,000 will therefore provide funding for 7 classes.

To apply for a place please complete the short application form here.
