Virgin London Marathon 2013

Can any help by confirming you are automatically given a place in 2014 if you defer this year's run? I am sure that was the case, but want to make doubly sure.


  • Providing you inform LM head office before 21/04/2013 you will automatically get a place in 2014, but you will have to pay the entry fee, in full, again. Good luck with next years training

  • Many thanks Dave. As the song goes "Things can only get better" !
  • Hi pete I deferred last year but it does cost again and when they send you this years email they state under no circumstances can you defer twice. Hope this helps.
  • i was going to say as long as you didn't defer last year.only one deferral allowed....and you can do it up to the theday before so can take your time to decide

    I think they work out in their planning that there will be a certain percentage of no-shows.

    Not sure what happens if everyone shows up on the day.

    Feel free to carry on banging on about it. It's very entertaining.
  • Being Mr. Boring, I read some time back that they allow for a 10% drop out in the planning stage LOL

  • That'll be what they call "Davids"; people who get a place after years of moaning then don't use it.

    If you defer your London place do you need a medical certificate from a doctor or do they take your word for it that you are ill or injured and give you a place for the following year (I know you have to pay again).

  • No certificate needed. They don't want any sick people feeling forced to run because they have a place. That's bound to lead to trouble.
