Congratulations to our Virgin London Marathon runners

We'd like to say a huge thank you to every single one of our 103 Team Orange runners who did themselves and their supporters proud as they took on the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 21 April.

Collectively, they are set to raise an incredible £240,000 which will help fund our groundbreaking research into finding effective treatments and cures for muscle-wasting conditions.

Fancy taking on the 2014 London Marathon? Apply for a charity place today.

Muscular Dystrophy Campaign staff, volunteers and supporters turned our two cheer points orange - at Tower Bridge and Victoria Embankment - as they supported our runners along the way and helped them celebrate at the post-race reception at St James' Square.

The London Marathon ballot for 2014 has now closed. If you'd like to apply for one of our golden bond places, please apply online.

We have a range of running events for you to choose from, including the Bupa 10,000 in London in May, our Oxford and Cambridge Town and Gown 10k series in May and October respectively, the Great South Run in October and many more.
