Last-call-for-RNLI-runners-in-the-2015-London-Marathon

Byline: The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has a few places still available for the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon.
Page Content: But, the opportunity to register with the charity closes at the end of November.

The RNLI continues to celebrate the commitment and support of its heroic runners who go to great lengths, literally, to help the charity keep saving lives at sea and on the River Thames.  Last year, the three London Lifeboat stations on the River Thames – Tower, Chiswick and Teddington – launched 733 times, rescuing 372 people and saving 25 lives.

For RNLI runners it’s all about the challenge, the atmosphere, the crowds and the ability to make a tangible difference to saving lives. And the RNLI still has places left for those who’d like to sign-up to run in 2015.

Sara Elliott chose to run the London Marathon for the RNLI earlier this year after her son was rescued when he and his friends became stranded on a section of rock on a trip to the beach: ‘Appreciating first-hand the amazing work that the RNLI do inspired me to sign-up to run.’

‘The support all around the course was incredible and it really was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done – I hope to do it again sometime!’

The largest annual one-day fundraising event in the world, the London Marathon has raised more than £600 million for hundreds of charities since it began in 1981. Runners who are able to raise £2,300 in sponsorship for the RNLI will allow the charity to fully kit both a volunteer all-weather lifeboat crew member as well as a beach lifeguard.

To register your interest in the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon, or for more information go to www.RNLI.org.uk/LondonMarathon or contact events@rnli.org.uk.
