Why choose the London Marathon?

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the most iconic running events in the world. Join thousands of runners in this popular 26.2 mile race and enjoy being cheered on around the course whilst taking in some of London’s most famous landmarks.

Why run it for Unicef?

Your fundraising through the London Marathon can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world.

Did you know that £2000 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 88 malnourished children back to health?
