Lucozade Sport and parkrun
Have you got what it takes to run the 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon? The Lucozade Sport team and parkrun are giving you the chance to prove it.
Log all eight consecutive parkruns (you can either run or volunteer) from Saturday 26th October 2013 to Saturday 14th December 2013 and you’ll go into the draw to win a place on the start line on Sunday 13th April 2014.
Each week those that miss their 9am Saturday parkrun will drop out of the race, with the two marathon places drawn from the group of the last runners left standing.
Last year Helen Cookson (Norwich parkrun) and Mick Brown (Whitley Bay parkrun) showed their commitment and earned themselves a spot on Team Lucozade Sport for the 2013 Virgin London Marathon start line by completing #ChaseThePlace. Get involved and you could be on that start line in April 2014.

Make sure you’re well prepared to make it through this eight week challenge. With your running as our priority, Lucozade Sport has just the right product to ensure you are well hydrated and ready to take on your run. Lucozade Sport Lite is designed to give your run a boost with only 50 calories per serve. This calorie content is lower than most sports drinks and it is therefore ideal for activities where less energy replenishment is required and you don’t consume more calories than you burn.
Lucozade Sport Lite contains electrolytes and fluid which help to keep you hydrated. It also contains B vitamins for energy release in the body.
The colour of your pee can give you a good indication as to how hydrated or not you are. Before you begin to exercise you should aim to check your pee colour and Lucozade Sport has even produced a handy 'pee chart' to help you understand your level of hydration. Check it out here and discover your hydration status.
