Run Face

Share your #runface for a 2017 London Marathon place

It’s back, here’s one of your first chances to win a guaranteed 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon place from Virgin Money Giving and all you need to enter is your face, your feet and your smart phone.

In a short film from Virgin Money Giving they tell you that no matter what your #runface looks like, your fundraising will look excellent with Virgin Money Giving, because they’re 100% not-for-profit.

They showed you their run faces, now we want to see yours!

Take a picture of your #runface and share it with us on twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #runface and next year, you could find yourself at the Green Start line of the Virgin Money London Marathon. There you’ll take your marks, get set and then run the iconic 26.2 miles to the Mall, following in the footsteps of Paula Radcliffe, Mo Farrah, Jenson Button and by then what will be over a million other people who have undertaken the course.

So whether you have a glam face, a sweaty face, a run-in-the-snow face or a sick-of-the-gym face – it could win you this fantastic prize.

We’ll also be sharing our favourites on Social Media so get creative and get sharing. And for some #runface inspiration, check out our video or see below for the entries we collect.
