Who can apply?

You don't have to be a member of Girlguiding to be part our London Marathon team. However because of the physical activity you will need to have some experience of running. It's important to train before the event too - the London Marathon website has lots of tips and plans for both beginners and seasoned pros.

Guiding is so important to today's girls. Building confidence, living life and experiencing situations that give life-long memories. Friendships made through Girlguiding are "forever friendships". It was my pleasure to run the marathon to ensure the next generation of girls get life lessons in the most enjoyable way possible - Tracey, Marathon Runner
