About the event
If you’re ever going to take on the challenge of running a marathon, you should definitely think about choosing the London Marathon as the event for you. As well as having a truly unique atmosphere, the London Marathon follows a route that means you constantly view iconic landmarks at every turn.
This includes the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, Tower Bridge and the magnificent Buckingham Palace, which provides the perfect backdrop for the spectacular finish on The Mall.
On top of this, your participation in this world-famous race will help to raise vital funds for our life-changing work. Money we’ll use to improve the lives of people living with mental illness and their carers.
