Hey runners I’m looking for some advice if anyone can help...

I applied for the 2021 London Marathon through 2 ways, 1 through the Virgin Ballot and the 2nd way I applied through the Mind Charity.

My predicament is I’ve already accepted my charity place but have now received an email from Virgin stating I’ve got a place with them too?

Whats my best route? Do I defer my charity place to next year and take up the free ballot? Is that even possible?

My charity place requires me to raise £2200, I still want to raise money for the charity but with lockdown it’s proving quite hard to raise that amount, would it be best to defer to next year?

Let me know what you would do...

thank you

Would it be too late for the charity to give their place to someone else? You could let them give that spot to someone else, use your ballot place, but voluntarily raise some money for the charity anyway. That way at least you don't have the worry of having to raise a particular amount - you just raise what you can manage.
