Join the Bobby Moore Fund squad at the Virgin Money London Marathon and help bring forward the day when bowel cancer is cured

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet, with a buzz like no other event on the calendar.

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 Bobby Moore Fund 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 fund pioneering, life-saving bowel cancer research. Your support really can help us to beat bowel cancer sooner.

Bobby Moore Fund

Bobby Moore was just 51 years old when he died. The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK was set up by Stephanie Moore MBE, Bobby’s widow, in his memory to fund pioneering, life-saving bowel cancer research.

Since the fund was set up in 1993 mortality rates have fallen by more than 30% and over £26.7 million has been raised for research, but we still have so much more to do.
