Water Station Volunteers

Join us as we support thousands of people raising money for charity at this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April. BOST will be organising one of the water stations for runners  at Mile 16 on West Ferry Road, handing out much need water and encouragement at this tricky stage of the race.

An early start with a free cup of coffee and a bacon sandwich sets you up for a fun day as we applaud the runners and hand out water. See the elite runners up close and personal as they fly by first, followed by the club runners and the fun runners in their amazing costumes.
You can have a turn on the megaphone cheering on the runners who most need encouragement.
