Last year over 35,000 people ran the 26.2 mile London Marathon course through the centre of London. Many were running for charity and raising millions of pounds for good causes.
Running any marathon is a huge personal achievement. London's is a particularly amazing experience, with supporters cheering you on every inch of the way.
I’ve never done anything so hard in my life and I'm still in awe of the incredible crowd support. And it was simply brilliant to see all you guys cheering us on, even if I was delirious by that point! Thanks for all the help.
Run for Turn2us
For individuals and families in financial need, just a little help can make a massive difference. Run the 2017 London Marathon for Turn2us and help to tackle poverty and transform the lives of some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the UK.
Every year Turn2us has a limited number of guaranteed charity places in this hugely popular and oversubscribed event. Although charity entries for 2017 have now closed, if you managed to get a ballot place in this year's Virgin Money London Marathon, it's not too late to join our team. There is no minimum sponsorship requirement for own place runners and any money you raise will really help people in poverty. We'll support you to raise as much as you can. If you'd like to run for Turn2us, please email us to obtain your sponsorship pack and complimentary running vest.
If you are interested in running in the London Marathon in 2018, we will have charity places. We need runners accepting guaranteed places to commit to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship for us. In return, we’ll supply heaps of encouragement, fundraising advice and support with PR, along with a running vest and training t-shirt. If you'd like to apply for a place, please start by completing our online application form and one of our team will be in touch by return.
With you every step of the way
