The London Marathon 2020

Event details


Sunday 4th October 2020




25.2 miles


As we have filled all Gold Bond places we will be accepting place runners who have secured their place through the public ballot at this time.

Running the London Marathon for Hearing Dogs


Hearing Dogs for Deaf People has an annual allocated number of guaranteed places available for a minimum sponsorship pledge per place of £1500 (we also ask for a £200 non-refundable deposit to secure your gold bond place). These places have now all been taken.

If you were lucky enough to receive a place in the ballot and would like to run in aid of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, please do get in touch - we would love to have you join our 2020 VLM Team as an "own place" runner.

As part of the Hearing Dogs team you will benefit from receiving lots of support and encouragement from the friendly team at Hearing Dogs. A point of contact for all your queries, a personalised support pack along with a running vest and fancy-dress ears!

We will also offer guidance and tips for fundraising to help you raise as much as possible, which will directly help us to train more dogs that help deaf people to leave loneliness behind.
