Virgin Media London Marathon 2019
On the 28th April 35 troops from London District will be running the Virgin Media London Marathon in aid of Tickets For Troops.
This year we are delighted to be sponsored by Viasat, a global communications company with a growing UK presence. Viasat connects communities to the internet; enables passengers to stream high-bandwidth content when travelling globally and empowers the military in the battlespace with secure, assured real-time situational awareness, information and intelligence. Viasat UK delivers secure solutions and integrates technology to enable consumers, governments and military personnel to be connected - playing a part in redefining connectivity for the battlespace.
This world renowned race is the largest annual fundraising event in the world and the money you donate makes a massive difference to TFT and helps us continue to provide tickets to fantastic events for our members.
The 2019 marathon is particularly special for us as this year we are celebrating 10 years since TFT was founded. In that time we have distributed over 1.3 million tickets to the Armed Forces. In the last decade we have given troops the oppotunity to attend everything from football games to film premieres, big name comedians to West End productions, stadium tours to music festivals. We've truly been blown away by the generosity of all of our donors, who continue to offer such amazing opportunities to members of the Armed Forces to thank them for their service and give them the chance to create amazing memories. We hope to be able to continue supporting our Armed Forces with pride for many years to come.
With the 2018 London Marathon offically the hottest on record we'll be hoping for a slightly cooler day for all those taking to the tarmac! Good Luck everyone!
