Virgin Money London Marathon

26.2 miles is the distance our runners are going for young lives. We’d love to have you on our team and see you going the distance in April 2019.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet. Imagine running past some of the world’s most iconic landmarks whilst thousands of people shout your name. Imagine all the memories that will live with you forever.

From the moment you sign up, our team will be on hand to offer all the support you need. We’ll be there on the day, joining you for the evening’s pasta party and breakfast in the early hours before waving you off on your epic adventure. We would love for you to join us and go the distance for young lives.  Join our team. Apply for a Golden Bond place, or use your own place to run for us.


Do your own thing

Be a life changer, wherever your imagination takes you.

Discover and explore the great outdoors running through fields, along tracks and pounding the trails in the city, on the coast and in the countryside.

Every step you take on your journey through amazing places can change young lives forever.

Choose your run and let us know who you will be doing it with; on your own, as part of a group of family and friends or as an event that brings your community together.

Remember you can use our unique and historic hostels as your perfect base, located in some of most of the beautiful scenery that England and Wales has to offer. Our team will help you every step of the way.

More running events coming soon

If running is your thing and you’d like to help us change young people’s lives but don’t see any events you fancy taking part in then keep this page bookmarked as we’ll have more running events coming soon.

Run through field, cover trails, pound the streets, or take to the track with the wind in your hair, all safe in the knowledge that you are raising money to give young people with challenging lives the opportunity to get a well-deserved break.

From marathon to 5kms and from 24 hour races to gentle jogs, we’ll have events to suit any type of runner – no matter what your pace.
