Important update

The organiser has confirmed that the Virgin Money London Marathon has been postponed until Sunday 4 October 2020

We understand this is an upsetting time, but we want all our runners to know that we are still in it together. 

We will be in contact with all of our runners to go through any changes. In the meantime please join our Facebook and Strava groups to keep in touch and stay updated with what we have going on. 

A massive thank you to our amazing team so far and for your continued support. 

We look forward to an epic marathon day in a few months’ time, so you can still say #ActuallyICan.

'‘My favourite bit about running the marathon was having Leonard Cheshire cheer us on. It is a cause that it close to my heart and it means a lot to me to raise awareness of the work they do and for us runners to be raising thousands of pounds for them.’ — Debbie, 2019 runner

‘Seeing my family and people from Leonard Cheshire out there cheering me on made all of the difference. It really helped get me through.’ — Deborah, 2019 runner

‘It was a challenge of course but it is a great charity and a great cause.’ Kenneth, 2019 runner

'Just want to say a huge thank you for the opportunity to run London for Leonard Cheshire this year. It was an amazing experience, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and to know it’s helped such a fantastic charity is absolutely amazing!’ Christie, 2018 runner

Support individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability.

8 out of 10 disabled people wer not born with their disability, so here's why our fundraising target is £1,800. 

Many have become disabled after an accident, or from a stroke, cancer or developing conditions like multiple sclerosis or motor neurone disease. These life-changing circumstances can stop people in their tracks. Your marathon fundraising will make sure they can live a full life again, and achieve their dreams.
