If you secure a place in the 2013 Virgin London Marathon you’ll need to register for the race. There are two parts to this process:
Part 1 - The registration form
You will receive your registration form in the post in March and you must bring this with you to the 2013 Virgin London Marathon Expo along with your identification (see details in Part 2) in order to collect your runner number, timing tag and kit bag.
Part 2 - The 2013 Virgin London Marathon Expo
The 2013 Virgin London Marathon Expo will be held from Wednesday 17th April to Saturday 20th April at the city’s ExCel Exhibition Centre. All runners will need to attend one of these days to register. If you live in London please try to attend on Wednesday or Thursday because the event gets very busy on Friday and Saturday with runners who’ve come from further away.
Simply take your registration form along to the Expo and exchange it for your runner number, timing tag and kit bag. The Registration Clerk will ask you to sign the declaration on your registration form in front of them and show some identification (for example, your passport or driving license). They will also give you some instructions for race day – please read them carefully.
What to do if you can’t attend the Expo
Although we encourage everyone to register for the Virgin London Marathon in person we know this isn’t always possible. Here’s what to do if you can’t attend the event:
- Nominate someone to attend the Expo and collect your runner number for you.
- Your nominee will need a letter written and signed by you, giving permission for them to collect your number. They’ll also need to bring a copy of your identification.
- Sign the declaration on your registration form. When your nominee gives the form to the Registration Clerk, they’ll check your details.
- Your nominee will also need to bring some identification (for example, their passport or driving license).
There are special desks at the Expo for overseas runners to register - these will be clearly marked.
