London Marathon

The Starship Foundation is keen to hear from anyone who has secured their place in the 2016 Virgin London Marathon and would like to run for the kids at Starship!

Although the Starship Foundation does not have any guaranteed spots in the 2016 Virgin London Marathon, that won't stop Team Starship from taking London by storm!

If you have been lucky enough to secure a place in the 2016 Virgin London Marathon and would like to help us make miracles happen for New Zealand's children - we would love to hear from you!  

We will of course kit you out in Starship gear and provide you with all the training tips and fundraising support that you need.

Team Starship 2015

For the second year running, the Starship Foundation had an incredible team run for the children at Starship in the Virgin Money London Marathon.

Made up of 18 members, Team Starship have completed the London marathon and collectively raised more than NZ$100,000 to date! This is an extraordinary result that will help us keep our national children's hospital fit for the needs of our most vulnerable children and their families.

One of our star-iffic runners Chris Staal completed the marathon in his Intrepid Kiwi costume! Chris caused quite a stir by striding out on the streets of London in his Kiwi costume, training in full Kiwi gear getting ready for the big day!

We did it! With so many months of training it's hard to believe it's finally over. I had such a brilliant day and it was great to experience the marathon as a runner and see the fantastic support from London.
