About the London Marathon

If you’re ever going to take on the challenge of a marathon, the London Marathon is the event for you.

With a truly unique atmosphere, the London Marathon follows a route of iconic landmarks at every turn, including the Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge and the magnificent Buckingham Palace, which provides the perfect backdrop for the spectacular finish on The Mall.

Your participation in this world-famous race will raise vital funds for our life-changing work to improve the lives of people living with mental illness and their carers.

If you want to join the thousands of people cheering along the route, or if you are lucky enough to get a ballot space for 2024, you can still be part of the team, just let us know by emailing events@rethink.org.
