About the event

Entries are now open to join our London Marathon team in 2021!

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.

Get in touch below to let us know you are interested.

'register your interest' if you have your own place for the London Marathon and want to join the team or are interested in joining our cheering team on the day.

We have two cheering points along the route at mile 17 and 24 and a celebration event at the end where runners will have access to a sports massage and more.
