Prince Harry will present the winners’ medals and prizes at the finish of the 2013 Virgin London Marathon.

The royal will attend the race on Sunday, April 21 as patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust, a three-year role he took up in 2012.

He will make presentations to the winners of the Virgin Money Giving Mini Marathon, as well as all the medallists in the elite men’s, women’s, wheelchair and IPC Athletics Marathon World Cup races.

Prince Harry will also meet a number of volunteers involved with the race, and members of St John’s Ambulance.

The London Marathon Charitable Trust was set up in 1981 to provide funding for recreation facilities in London from the income generated by the marathon. In 32 years it has allocated grants of nearly £50million to more than 1,000 projects in areas of the country where the London Marathon stages events.

Since Prince Harry became its patron, the London Marathon Charitable Trust has joined him and the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to support the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, which aims to protect 2,012 outdoor recreational spaces as a lasting legacy to The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The London Marathon Trust has awarded five marathon places to charities involved with the Charities Forum, a collective group of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s and Prince Harry’s charitable patronages.
