OK, so fitness and marathon training may not exactly be high on your list of priorities right now, but places for next year’s London Marathon have already run out. Fortunately, the folks at cancer charity Maggie's have reserved a place in the prestigious race for one lucky reader. Maggie’s has set aside a place to run in the marathon, and are giving it away to the reader who pledges to raise the most money for charity.

All funds raised by the winning applicant will go towards City A.M.’s £1m campaign for Maggie’s Barts, a new cancer support Centre coming to St Bartholomew’s Hospital in late 2016.

The news of the competition comes at an opportune moment. With the prize draw closing Friday January 15, that leaves everyone plenty of time to fully embrace the holiday season’s bounteous food and drink. You can fill in the application below and continue shovelling in the mince pies to your heart’s content for the next month.
