Join our team at the Virgin Money London Marathon and make a huge difference.

Whether a marathon is your natural next step, or the thought of 26.2 miles seems like an impossible mission, the buzz around this event is like no other.

With thousands of people lining the roads to scream your name and our unique race day hospitality, the Virgin Money London Marathon really is an experience that will live with you forever.

We'll support you all the way to that famous finish line. Before the race, we'll be on hand with training and fundraising tips, we’ll provide our branded running top, and hold training days run by our professional coaching team. On race weekend, we'll have amazing cheer teams along the route, as well as a much deserved massage and post-race party overlooking the finish line on the Mall. We'll make sure it's a day you'll remember forever.

We’re running to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Your support really can help us save lives.
