Electrical Industries Charity Taking Applications for London Marathon

The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) has announced that it is now taking applications for next year’s Virgin Money London Marathon.

The event will take place on April 23, 2017 and potential runners are being urged to submit their applications to run the historic race sooner rather than later to secure their place in one of the world’s biggest fundraising events.

The London Marathon is still one of the UK largest events of the year and the EIC is encouraging industry members to take part in the iconic race to raise funds that are needed to help industry workers in difficult times.

For the 2017 event, the Virgin Money London Marathon has received more than 253,000 applications with time running out to join them at the historic show. Thursday September 1, 2016, is the final deadline for applications, with those who have been successful notified by October 31, 2016.

Tessa Ogle, Managing Director, said that the Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the world’s biggest and most famous races, with thousands of participants every year who challenge themselves to raise much needed funds for those who matter to them most.

Ogle added: “In the past two years, the charity’s runners took to the streets of London and raised thousands of pounds for the Electrical Industries Charity. We are hoping to raise even more money in the upcoming year.

“Now is your opportunity to challenge yourself and to show your support for your charity by securing your place and raising money for those who need your help the most.”
