I am over the top excited for today’s giveaway- I can’t quite believe it! One very very lucky winner will win entry to the Virgin London Marathon 2015 thanks to Holiday Inn, the official hotel partner of the VLM.
Not only that, but they will also receive two night’s stay at Holiday Inn (one the night before the Marathon, and another to experience the brand during their training), monthly personal training sessions PLUS a four month training programme to get you marathon ready. You’ll also be kitted out in running kit for your training and the big day.
This is huge. The London Marathon is one of the world’s largest marathons and notoriously difficult to get in to. I ran it in 2012 as my first ever marathon and loved it. The crowds, the atmosphere, the support are unlike any race I’ve done since.
Whether you’re a marathon newbie, or a seasoned pro you could win the chance to be toeing the line on the 26th April. To enter simply leave a comment telling me why you want to run, for an extra entry tweet about your answer using the hashtag #restandrun and including @charliedwatson and @HolidayInn.
As part of the prize, I would love you to contribute to posts on The Runner Beans to see how the training is going and hear more about the PT sessions- sweaty selfies included!
Competition closes on 12th Jan and a winner will be chosen at random. I can’t wait to hear about your reasons for wanting to run the VLM 2015! If you are running the Virgin London Marathon in 2015, why not think about staying at Holiday Inn, Stratford. They’ve put together Marathon Packages that are designed to support runners and their families by providing a great night’s sleep before the race, a nutritious breakfast and a coach transfer to the start line.
