If you are interested in running the 2013 Virgin London Marathon and would be able to provide media coverage for this event, please advise the VLM media team soonest as per the email address below.

The press office has a limited allocation of guaranteed media entries for working media who are willing to cover the Virgin London Marathon with media activity before, after and during the event. We will be conducting our media ballot the week of Monday 26th November, and the closing date for applications is Friday 23rd November 2012. All successful and unsuccessful applications will be notified the week of Monday 3rd December 2012.

Please note we have already received many requests for such places, so if you have already applied for a guaranteed media place, you will also be notified the week of Monday 3rd December 2012.

All media runners start from the Green Start on raceday.

Also, please can we take this opportunity to update our media distribution list, so if you are not the correct contact at this media outlet please provide the amended details.
