“I felt proud on the day wearing my APEC vest, and had many comments from other runners and the crowd stating that I was running for a great cause. When the going got tough, knowing I was representing APEC and had a huge amount of fundraising behind me kept me going and helped me pull through to the finish line.”



We understand the London Marathon is a huge commitment and ask our UK runners to raise £2000 by the end of May 2020. We also require a £100 admin donation* upon your offer of a place. Overseas runners may have different deadlines, please get in touch for information.

*this is non refundable, full terms and conditions are available on request.

For 2019, APEC have used the money raised by the London Marathon runners to fund an awareness campaign. A brand new wallet sized ‘keep me’ booklet will be going out to all pregnant women through the Emma’s Diary* packs, which are given out FREE during pregnancy. Without our London Marathon team, this project would have not been possible. Thank you so much for helping us to:

  • Raise awareness of the signs and symptons of pre-eclampsia
  • Tell women and families when and where to seek help and advice

The leaflets will be going out to women in Emma’s Diary* packs from March 2019 – March 2020  *TM

We provide our wonderful runners with:

  • Support via email, telephone and social media, Facebook group
  • Personalised running vest and cosy training hoodie for those winter runs
  • Personalised Fundraising pack
  • Cheering and support on race day!

Thank you so much to all Virgin London Marathon runners
